Apostles Lutheran Church Preschool
Greetings from Preschool,
We have a few scholarships left to give out, come see if you qualify, all you need to bring us is your 2017 taxes and last four current paystubs. Our scholarships are for part or full time. Our hours are 7:30-5:30, Monday –Friday. And available to children 3-5 years who are completely potty trained. Give me a call at church 623-979-3497, let’s talk.
The new school year begins August 15th. Teachers are hustling and bustling to get the rooms cleaned, reorganized and ready, set, go for the children. Miss Kellie and Miss Carmela are working on centers, creating themed ideas for the children and getting school tools such as mathematics, language and science items out.
A meet and greet for the parents is scheduled for August 8th, where we will go over the handbook and check out the rooms and have dessert.
A donation tree is set up in the Narthex and ready with tags for donation items needed for Preschool and Sunday school. We ask that you would prayerfully consider taking a tag or two and donating items. The school bus was brought back to collect our items in again, so a big shout out goes to Carmen for her excellent talent.
Preschool will once again undergo ECERS assessments in June or July of 2019. In order to be ready, we will continue to upgrade the school this year in hopes of receiving a 5 star rating. We have put together a “Wish Book” for the items that will most benefit our school, create more STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) interactions for the children and make learning that much more exciting and rich in knowledge. I have compiled 2 copies of the “wish book”, one is in the Narthex and the other in my office, if you would like to take a look. These items are needed in both classrooms as we do not share space. We are excited to see how the classrooms and playground take shape this year in preparation for the ECERS team to see the big improvements we have made to our school. Thank you ahead of time for your consideration of donations to our classrooms and playground.
On July 16th, Mr. Sarkisian started work on the fencing for the expansion of our playground. When he is done it will be a great space for the children to play. The uncle of one of our students has also donated the cement for a bike path around the playground. We will need some volunteers to help with the forms and smoothing of the cement. When that time comes I will ask for some help, did I mention I will making lunch for those who come to help? Wink, wink! This will help with the sand explosion we deal with daily too.

A BIG thank you to our church family from the preschool for the many blessings you have all provided us. What a blessing God is providing to be a mission and ministry of our church. Getting ready for our upcoming assessment has been a long road to travel in a short period of time. With all your prayers, helping hands, and donations, you have made this journey much easier. We see God’s hand in all that is done and for that I praise and thank you daily.
Much love and appreciation
