Calvary Lutheran Preschool Press

Calvary Lutheran Preschool offers a Christian environment that is respectful of others.  Our goal is to provide an experience that is developmentally enriching, in a safe and nurturing atmosphere that fosters love and sharing.  We respect each child as an individual, with unique needs and experiences.  Our preschool is designed to allow each child to learn, explore, and grow in all areas of development.

Our goals are:
1.  Intellectual - Encourage an enthusiasm for learning and a sense of accomplishment in completing activities and assigned tasks.
2.  Social - Encourage participation in group activities that will help children learn to work cooperatively with peers and adults.
3.  Physical - Encourage physical independence by maximizing large and small muscle coordination and motor skills through
music, art and games.
4. Emotional and Spiritual - Provide a loving and caring faculty in a safe and nurturing environment.  Promote family bonding.  Foster God’s love through chapel time and reinforcement of the Golden Rule.

Greetings:

The school year is off to a great start.  The children are learning procedures and everyone is meeting new friends and reacquainting with old friends.

We will have a few opportunities for parents to visit us at Calvary this month.  We hope you will be able to attend a “Coffee Hour” and our annual “Halloween Parade for the 3’s & 4’s”

Halloween will soon be here and the children are getting excited about the event. We hope that the children will all come to school in a costume on the day of their party.  Even the teachers will be getting in on the fun.  The parties will be held on Wednesday, October 29, Thursday, October 30th and Friday, October 31st. The parades will be held on Thursday, October 30th and Friday, October 31st.

Immediately on arrival we will have the Halloween Parades in the parking lot.  The 3’s and 4’s will be marching and on Thursday, October 30th the T/TH 2’s are invited to watch the older children in their parade.  Since the M/W 2’s will not be at school on a parade day, they will have an opportunity to march through the 3’s & 4’s classrooms on Wednesday for their own parade.

Please note that the hours for the Preschool Classes are changed on Friday, October 31 in order to schedule the Parade and Carline.

            MWF 4’s am class     9:00-11:30 (no change)

            MWF 4’s pm class     12:30-3:00 (no change)

            MWF 3’s class            9:00-11:30

            TTHF 3’s class           9:30-12:00

            2’s Friday class         9:30-12:00

Also the T,TH 2’s will have changed hours: 9:00 – 11:30 on Thursday, October 30th .

After dropping off your child, please park your car.   The parade only lasts a few minutes.  Then the children will go to their classrooms with their teachers for Halloween Fun.  Please send a large paper bag to school on that day with your child’s name on it.  We will send home their costume and party items in this bag.

Overflow Parking Lot:

Please be aware that Calvary Lutheran Church has an overflow parking lot located on the south side of Rosedale Avenue.  If your family is planning to come to events at Calvary Preschool in two cars, please consider parking the second car in this lot.  That will allow more families the opportunity to park close to the school.  Thank you!
