May 2018 Newsletter

Dear Northminster Parents and Friends:

We have one more month of preschool and then Summer Camp!  The school year goes until June 8, 2018, we will have our usual school hours that day from 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.  

The preschool will be closed on Monday, May 28, 2018 in observance of Memorial Day.  Also, please keep an eye open for the Summer Camp letter and room assignments. Those letters will be going home on Monday, June 4, 2018 and Tuesday, June 5, 2018.  

Summer Camp starts Monday, June 18, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. and school closes in the summer at 4:30 p.m.

Our wonderful annual Art Night is Friday, May 18, 2018.  Dinner starts at 5:15 p.m. The cost is $5.00 for adults and 12 years and younger are free!  Dinner is payable at the door. We will also be holding a silent auction during dinner on the stage.  We are putting together some fun packages, so you can shop and support Northminster after you have had dinner!  The classrooms will open at 6:00 p.m. for the Art Show.

The parent group enrichment program this month is Pacific Animal Productions.  We will have a group here that will be bringing in animals to show the children, so they can learn about the different animals in their environment.  Those shows will take place on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 and Wednesday, May 23, 2018 in the fireside room. The show starts at 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

We will be having our last Parent Group meeting of the year on May 11, 2018.  We would love to see you there. We are looking for parents who are interested in helping with fundraising ideas for next year.  Lunch will be provided for you and your child can go to lunch bunch for free!

On behalf of the entire staff at Northminster Preschool, we would like to thank you for all the small and large things you have done this year to make our school special.  Not only have you shared your unique skills with the children, you have donated supplies, time and love whenever we have needed it. You are an amazing group of parents and I wanted to let you know that what you do for us does not go unnoticed!
