From the Director....
Our God is so big and does so much for us. He never ceases to amaze me.
“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12. Here at Holy Cross, we are of many parts, but we form one body in Christ. We have shown that again by the generosity of preschool families, and our amazing congregation, when we all came together to help Mission Arlington with our Feeding of the 5000 drive. Thank you to everyone that participated and supported this great service project for our community. I will have a total for you as soon as everything is counted. We are loading the truck Friday, March 2nd at 11:30 a.m.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 10th, for our Preschool Workday. We need to get the leaves off the playground and scrape and repaint the swings along with a few other items. Meet me on the playground at 9:00 a.m. If you have tools to spare, please bring those. We will need scrapers, paint rollers, paint brushes, paint trays, rakes, and leaf bags. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your gloves. We will need parent and church member volunteers. Please contact me for more information or questions.
Ms. Melissa’s class and Ms. Lynn’s class will be leading the Lenten Service on Wednesday, March 21st. We will also host the dinner that evening. There will be a free-will offering at the door. Dinner starts at 5:30 p.m. The children need to be in their classroom by 6:30 p.m. that evening.
Do you need the motivation to do some spring cleaning? Well, the preschool can help with that, our Annual Garage Sale is Saturday, April 7th. Please start going through your closets, shed, and garage and collecting things you want to get rid of. You know one person’s junk is another person’s treasure. Starting April 2nd, we will be accepting donations for our annual garage sale. Large items such as furniture can be dropped off Thursday, April 5th, and Friday, April 6th in the Plaza. The past three years this has turned out to be a win-win situation for both the congregation and the preschool. You get rid of stuff and we have a great fundraiser.
Summer and Fall Registration has already been sent out. Please make sure that you get this turned back in ASAP along with the registration fee. Open registration will begin on March 5th. If you are interested in (or know someone that is) our Summer program or the Fall program, please give me a call for more information at 817-451-7561. The summer program will run all summer and will continue as 5 days a week and the hours will remain the same: 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. The summer program will begin on Monday, June 18th and run through Friday, August 18th.
Finally, I am so excited to announce our First Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt. This event will take place on Saturday, March 31st from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. This is a free event and is open to our preschool families and neighborhood community. Feel free to invite your family, friends, and neighbors. We will have bounce houses, games, crafts, a message from our Puppet Ministry, and an egg hunt. Be on the lookout for more information very soon.
A reminder that the Preschool will be closed the week of March 12th-16th for Spring Break.
