April Parent Page

The ABC’S of Kindergarten April 12, 9:15 – 11:00
Are you the parent of a graduate or a prospective kindergarten student?
Please join us for this morning! Parents of children of all ages will find it relevant and fun. Nursery is provided if it is not a school day for your child. Email the preschool office to reserve a nursery spot (preschool@standrewunitedmethodist.org)
Parents will be offered an opportunity to talk with others from their elementary school. If one of your children has already graduated, we hope you will come, share your experiences, and be supportive of moms who are about to leave the security of preschool for the first time. If you are facing this important transition (and you all will be eventually!), come and get the inside story of what’s ahead for you and your child! Please come!!!!!

Preschool Registration Update
We have openings in Young 2’s for several more families. We have only a few spots left for 2’s and 3’s. Our 4’s are full (but we have no waiting list, yet and we usually have a few openings that come up in the summer.) Please help us advertise these opportunities with your friends and neighbors. We are really excited that our classes are filling so quickly. Thanks for telling your friends about us.

St. Andrew UMC Street Fair
Mark your calendars for the Street Fair, May 7 from 3 – 5 PM. The whole family will have fun. Plans include a fire truck, games, a table for children to make Mother’s Day cards and gifts, jumpy fun, face painting, door prizes, clowns, balloons ad more. For sale will be baked goods, funnel cakes, hanging flower baskets and more. Come join the fun!! (Rain date will be May 14. )

Teacher Appreciation Week
We had a wonderful time! Thank you for all the delicious food and special gifts. Your frog notes were funny and told us what the children remember and enjoy. The flowers the children brought in were lovely and your children were so adorable giving them to us. We all felt loved and appreciated! Our room moms did a great job organizing. Moms Jessi Kessock and Kim Leftwich really made things go smoothly for everyone. It was a fun week for all the staff.

Parent Surveys
Look for a survey opportunity the week after spring break. We use your feedback as a part of our planning process for next year. We appreciate all your suggestions.

Our tuition notes started going out March 30. Since Spring Break interferes with returning them, it will be OK if you are a few days late. We will try to get our May notices out the last week of April.

**School Holiday** Good Friday, April 22
