Hello Everyone!  Hope you’re having a terrific summer.  With just a few weeks of summer fun remaining, the preschool is getting ready for our 2017-2018 school year.  During the week of August 21st,  you will find our preschool staff back and getting ready for our first days of school!  

Your 2017-2018 Preschool Staff:

We will be together with our 1, 2 and 3 year old students and their families at our Open House to kick-off our 2017-2018 school year on Wednesday, August 23 at 6pm, and again at 7pm for our VPK/PreK students.  This is our opportunity to introduce the staff, meet the students and their families, see our class rosters and visit classrooms.  We will hold our Open House in the church Sanctuary.  Invitations to our Open House have just gone out.  Little Disciples Preschool is looking forward to all the fun the new year holds!

Attention all Preschool Parents:  We will be looking for Parent Volunteers to help us in the mornings on our playground and in the classrooms.  You will receive information at Open House (in your Preschool folder) showing all the ways we hope to involve you during the school year.  We look forward to including YOU!

Did you know that Little Disciples Preschool keeps very active in community service?  Last year we held a canned goods collection for the Food Pantry, we collected gifts for seniors and we also stuffed boxes full of Christmas presents for one deserving family within the community.  We used Scholastic points to purchase books for under-privileged children’s libraries locally and collected books that were sent to children to foster bedtime reading programs sponsored by Scholastic.  We are so blessed here at Little Disciples Preschool and it is our privilege to bring that same joy to our preschoolers as they discover how gratifying it is to help others.  

Our preschool year begins Monday, August 28, 2017.  Our public schools will open on August 14th.  Please help us keep all students safe by buckling them up in the backseat, using appropriate car-seats and booster seats and please DRIVE SAFELY.

Summer Camps continue through August 25.

                          There’s still time to join in the fun!!
