Weekly Wrap Up

Posted by Dawn Lorenz on 3/15/2019

Dear OLV Preschool Family,

 
Although the ground hog may have been wrong about an early spring, it is nice to see some of the snow melting and the kids playing outside 
again! We are excited to begin taking visits to Holmes Foster Park, climbing on our new playground, and exploring our beautiful OLV campus! God is good! 
 
Blessings,
Dawn

Lenten Service Project

Our children have started learning about the beatitudes and are hard at work to earn pennies for their service project. Donations will help create educational resources that are needed. Additionally, Mr. Chris has donated a Tumblebus party to the class that brings in the most coins for kindness for the project. So far we have already raised over $120! Thank you all for your generosity!
 

Summer Camp Registration OPEN

Explore our world through books this summer at OLV Preschool! We can't help but think ahead to warmer days. Join us as we dance, play, read, build, and explore this summer at the OLV Preschool Summer Program. Program will be held Monday-Friday from 8:00AM-3:00PM from June 10-August 9.  Open to children ages 3 years - 6 years (entering 1st grade). Attached is the registration materials and the summer program manual. You can also pick up materials at the front office. Registration will remain open until filled and is available on a first come basis. 
 
Enrollment for 19-20
Please turn in your signed class assignment sheet to Ms. GiGi to reserve your child's spot for next year no later than next Friday, March 22nd. Several classes have a wait list. If you have friends or family members interested in enrolling, please encourage them to do so quickly to ensure placement. 
 
We go through a lot of stuff . . .
Donations of supplies help us keep our tuition lower and are always appreciated. We are running low on tissues, sandwich and quart size ziplock bags, and baby wipes. As we begin to see sunnier days (we hope!) we also appreciate donations of kid-safe sunscreen.
