The Preschool is Buzzing with Excitement with our new Tot Rockers Program and a Successful Fall Fundraiser!

November 06, 2018
  • By now, at this time of the year, the preschool is settling into our routines. Children are familiar with their classmates and their surroundings. Everyone is beginning to hit his or her stride, and it is a great feeling! Teachers have responded how students are engaging more with their peers, building relationships, developing more language and expanding in their play with one another. Everyone is a little more comfortable which provides enriching experiences for learning to take place. We are blessed to have the support of our families; church members and the community help us to provide a wonderful educational environment.

    As of October 15, the preschool is rocking with our new Tot Rockers program! This program is also open to the community. Our music teacher, Ms. Ami, has created a program for children to participate in a setting that introduces them to a variety of musical instruments, songs, rhythm and beat! See how much fun everyone is having in these photos!

    One of the Parent Board fundraisers for the preschool was to sell First Presbyterian Preschool t-shirts for students to wear and show school spirit! We had over 90% participation for this wonderful fundraiser. See the pictures of our students and teachers showing their school spirit!

    The Parent Board had our Fall Fundraiser, and we appreciate the participation not only from the preschool families but also from our First Presbyterian Church families who participated in our raffle items! We are excited for the winners of these wonderful events that were auctioned. Below is a message from our Parent Board Chair, Elyse Butler, after our fundraiser event:

    “The Preschool held its Fall Fundraiser on Friday, October 12 at the home of Robert and Pamela Metz. This annual event is our biggest fundraiser and is a great opportunity for parents to hang out with old friends and mingle with new ones! This year included the opportunity to win some amazing raffle and silent auction packages including items from across the Northshore and experiences like a children’s birthday party, city boat ride to view fireworks, professional sport tickets, and an opportunity for a home visit from Santa Claus! Thank you to everyone who supported our raffle ticket sales. We are grateful for the generosity of our donors to this event. Proceeds help the preschool raise money for capital and technology upgrades, student scholarship and teacher development, and enhancing educational opportunities for our students such as bringing travelling museum exhibits to the preschool!”

    All these events and new programs are a blessing, and we feel God’s presence with us each and every day here in the preschool.
