From the Director....

Welcome, back friends!  I hope you had a relaxing summer break. I enjoyed seeing so many of you at the Back to School Bash, I hope you had a great time!

I am super excited about our new school year! We will continue to follow the AISD holiday schedule. The teachers are back and they are ready to teach your little ones, help them accomplish milestones, and share God’s Word and love with them daily.

Our fall session began on August 20th. We will continue to participate in the Texas School Readiness Grant in our 3 and 4-year-old classrooms. We are asking that the children be here by 8:30 a.m. in the morning. We will start off our school day by 8:30 a.m. with morning prayer and pledges, then transition into morning snack at 9:00 a.m., and then Joyful Noise at 9:15 a.m. then followed up with academics in the classroom. Chapel will be on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.

We will continue again this year with focusing on one memory verse a month. We will go over this memory verse in Joyful Noise, Chapel, and in the classroom during Jesus Time. They will have several opportunities to hear and recite the memory verse. For the month of September the memory verse is Romans 12:10 “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

We will continue with our joint service project of Feeding the 5000 with the church and two service projects at Atria (formerly Brookdale) Senior Living around Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  

We will also do two large fundraisers this year! One will be in the Fall and the other one will be our Spring Garage Sale the first Saturday in April. The preschool also collects Campbell soup labels to receive free products. Please turn your labels into the office so we can utilize this free resource. Last, but not least, we will also send out Scholastic book forms to order books for your child. When you order books the preschool earns points and in turn are able to order free books. So, this is a win-win situation, your child gets new books and the preschool gets new books for their library!

On Friday, September 7th our annual Griddle Cakes with Grandparents (Stand in Grandparents are more than welcome!). We will serve pancakes starting at 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. If you have any questions feel free to contact Madisen Dickey at 817-451-7561 or email me at madisend@hclc.net.

Thank you for being so welcoming and kind to me. I am so happy to be here and so excited for the new school year! I look forward to seeing all your shining little faces and getting to know each one of you.

Serving Him and His Children,

Madisen Dickey, Director
