CALVARY LUTHERAN PRESCHOOL PRESS
As the Christmas season approaches, our thoughts turn to the joy of sharing and giving. One of our Preschool goals is to develop with the children a feeling of kindness towards others. With this in mind, we will again have a “Sharing Tree” in each room. If you would like to participate, you may send an unwrapped gift to school with your child by Friday, December 13th. Your child will show the gift to classmates before placing it under the tree. The West Chester Salvation Army will pick up and distribute the gifts to needy children in our community. The teachers will be discussing caring, sharing and the joy of giving with the children.
A few suggestions for the older children:
- Have your child do special jobs to earn money to purchase the gift.
- Have your child help in choosing the gift.
- The gift should be something your child can identify with. Examples: books, crayons, markers, stickers, mittens, hats, small toys etc.
We know that everyone is busy during this time of year, however the Salvation Army is much appreciative of any gifts received. Thank you for helping us with the real meaning of the Christmas Season.
Also our 4’s Enrichment Classes will be working on a Christmas Service Project. The children will be making small gifts and cards. These items will be delivered to the shut-in members of Calvary Lutheran Church by the Pastors and other church members.
May your holiday be filled with happiness and love. From all of us at Calvary Lutheran Preschool we wish you a blessed holiday season and a healthy and peaceful New Year.

Christmas Shows & Parties:
Please note the time and day of your child’s party on the “News Page”. Families are very welcome to attend these special events. However we are asking that if both parents are coming in two cars, that one car be parked in the church’s auxiliary parking lot located on Rosedale Ave. This will enable all families to find at least one spot in the regular parking lot. There will be no car lines or Lunch Bunch on Party Days.
