Good morning. We will be closed today, Monday, December 11. As stated in our Parent Handbook, we follow Cobb County school closings. Please enjoy the morning with your precious children.
It has been a busy and fun week here at school! The four year old classes celebrated together with their annual Thanksgiving Feast and the other classrooms have been filled with Thanksgiving crafts, stories, and snacks!Over half of our staff members attended the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Annual Conference at the World Congress Center this week. They will be bringing new ideas back to share and implement in our classrooms! Thank you parents for making this possible through your hard work at Kindermart!Round 2 of our Giving Challenge brought in 606 nonperishable food items for the food pantry at MUST Ministries in just one week!!! The Dandy Lion Class led the way this week by bringing in 121 items! Round 3 will begin when we come back from break, and we will add new unwrapped toys to our collection to help stock the MUST Ministries Toy Shop! Thank you for teaching your children to share with the less fortunate in our community.We will be closed ...
Congratulations to the Zebra Class for winning round one in our food drive for MUST Ministries! They collected 74 items in week one with our 3 day Lamb class and our Kindergarten class following very close behind! The next closing date in the food challenge will be next Thursday and let's see how much food we can collect in the next 4 days! Tomorrow is Hands on Christmas which is a children's craft fair. It is sponsored by the church and the cost is $1.00 per ticket. Santa is stopping by and boys and girls can get their picture made with him! We are looking forward to next week as we celebrate Thanksgiving and talk about things that we are thankful for. Some of our staff will be attending the NAEYC conference next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. They will be introduced to new and exciting things happening in the educational world. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend:)
Hip Hip Hooray we survived Halloween!! We had a great week despite the children being all sugared up! We will start next week with chapel with Pastor Derek. We have a school holiday on Tuesday due to election day. Our K5 class will have parent-teacher conferences on Monday and Tuesday. The church sponsored Hands on Christmas will be on Saturday, November 11th from 10:00-2:00. Lots of things happening here at SFUMC Preschool!!
We have had a fun week and looking forward to a "spooky" week ahead. We are getting prepared for a lot of princesses, super heroes and fairy tale characters to invade the school on Monday and Tuesday. We will have our Halloween parties on those days! Hope everyone can get out and enjoy the Jonquil Festival this Saturday and Sunday. It will be located in downtown Smyrna and sponsored by the City of Smyrna. Have a great weekend!
Hip Hip Hooray we had another great week! A huge thank you to Cricket's Mobile Petting Zoo for sharing their farm animals with us. The kids had a blast petting and playing with all the furry friends. We will kick off next week with Fire Drills to continue teaching our little ones about fire safety. October is breast cancer awareness month and we are asking everyone to wear PINK on Monday in support of this. Another big day will be Wednesday when the church has their annual TRUNK OR TREAT!! Everyone is invited to attend this fun event. The festivities begin with dinner being served at 5:30 followed by a cake walk and trunk or treat @6:35. Candy Donations are cheerfully accepted (you can drop your candy off in carpool line). The four year classes will end the week going to chapel with Pastor Bruce on Thursday. I hope that everyone gets out this weekend and enjoys this incredible fall weather with your family.
We had a great time yesterday at the school wide picnic at Tolleson Park. The rain came early and then Mr. Sunshine came out! The kids enjoyed jumpy houses, sand play, face painting and a train ride. The food was catered by Crafty Hog and it was delicious. Thank you Parents' Club for a fabulous afternoon. This week we are having parent teacher conferences and are having fun learning some funny facts about the children. We are excited about the Petting Zoo coming this Thursday and Friday. We will be petting goats, chickens, bunny rabbits, and pot bellied pigs. Hope everyone has a great week!
We will begin our week with Chapel with Pastor Derek. The children will be learning about the different areas of the sanctuary and their proper names. Be sure and ask your 4 and 5 year old children what the baptismal font is used for!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Fall Break. We look forward to seeing your children's smiling faces first thing Monday (or Tuesday) morning for a week full of school fun and a big field trip for our 4 year old classes.
