Director's Newsletter April 2019

Dear Northminster Preschool Parents and Friends:

Wow!  It’s spring already?  It never ceases to amaze me how the time goes by so fast and your little ones grow by leaps and bounds!  

Chapel is this Tuesday and Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary.

We will be holding an easter egg hunt on Thursday, April 18th and Friday, April 19th.  Please check with your child’s teacher regarding what their needs are for the hunt.

We have Bubblemania coming on April 23rd and 24th at 10:30 a.m. in Congdon Hall.  This is our April enrichment program provided by funds raised by the parent group!  Parents are always welcome to attend.

We also have our spring pictures Pony Pictures (yes a live pony!).  If you want to dress your child up in western wear the pictures will be taken April 9th and 10th.   Please check with your child’s teacher to find out what day pictures are if you are 5 days. Part of the proceeds are given back to the preschool for the pictures you buy. They take every child’s picture and then you can come in and preview the pictures before you buy.

We were able to raise $2,500.00 from the Mixed Bags Fundraiser.  If you missed out on this great fundraiser, you can still order online through the summer and we will still get proceeds from the online sales.  Our id number for online orders is 74479.

On Monday, April 22 the preschool will be doing a dine and donate fundraiser at Chipotle from 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Flyers will be available the week of April 15th.  33% of sales go back to the school.

If anyone has any gift cards, museum tickets, Padre tickets, etc. to donate for the Art Night Celebration Silent Auction, we are still accepting items.  If you know a local business that would like to donate, we have donation letters in the office you can take to the business with our tax ID number.

Our tax ID number is 95-2240662 and your statements for tax purposes are available on your smart tuition page.  Please contact them if you are having trouble accessing your account. Our school ID for Smart Tuition is 11494.  Their number is 888-868-8828.

The Parent Group is looking for new parents to become a part of the wonderful Northminster Preschool tradition.  The preschool relies heavily on the parent group to fundraise for classroom improvements and manipulatives, playground and facility improvements and special classroom supplies.  Please consider becoming a part of next year’s parent group. The parent group is meeting Friday, April 12th in the Fireside room. Lunch will be prepared for the parents and if you come, your child can eat lunch with the other children for free (bring a lunch for them).

I want to thank you for your time, hard work and commitment to our preschool.  Thank you for all that you do for us and thank you for sharing your children with us!
