Kids Drawing

A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTORS

September 2022



Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. The teachers and staff are excited to have the children back on campus for a great year of learning and growing. I see and hear busy children working hard, singing songs and listening to stories in their classrooms. The outdoor art program is going well with lots of colorful easel painting and play-doh structures. The Parent Club will have their first meeting in September and look forward to seeing you there. This is a great place to meet other parents with many opportunities to participate. The events and fundraisers they plan are lots of fun for all, benefit the preschool and are a great way to make friends. Their meetings are often held at the Holy Grounds Cafe located on the church campus near the parking lot. The first Chapels will be September 19th and 20th. Please join us in the sanctuary at 9:30 AM for singing, September birthday celebrations and a short Bible story. The Covid-19 protocols are the same as last year and are available on the website. We as, you to give your child a quick health check before coming to school for signs of any illness. Your teacher will give you a quick visual health check at the door upon arrival and ask how your child is feeling. Then the children will wash their hands and join the group in the classroom. Arrival/dismissal will be extended from 9-9:10 AM and 12-12:10 PM to help keep walkways less crowded. The SBCPH sets the protocols we follow, and their guidelines and mandates remain fluid. On September 22, 2018 Assembly Bill 2370 was approved and requires water samples from all fixtures used for drinking or cooling be tested for lead content every five years. Our preschool had the testing done this summer and all fixtures are in compliance with the requirements. Thank you to David Bazell, one of our preschool fathers, for collecting the water samples and submitting them to the lab. That was quite a project, and we appreciate his time in doing this immensely. Let us know how we can help!
