Pre-K Monthly Theme

Happy New Year! This month our theme will be It’s A Small World, Winter and Martin Luther King Jr. We will learn about making friends and about the different cultures of the world. Our letters this month are M, N, O and our numbers are 11 & 12. Our shape this month is star and our color is blue.

The Biblical theme this month will focus on Queen Esther and how she trusted in God to give her strength to save her people. We will learn about her bravery and her willingness to trust in God.

Question: Do you have a favorite shirt?

Parents, please notify the office on days your child will NOT be riding the bus. We will always call you if your child does not get off their assigned bus. Parents must notify our office when your child has been sent home sick from the elementary school. If your child has been sent home sick or is in quarantine from Elementary School, they cannot attend After School that day/quarantine period.

Director’s Notes              

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a blessed Christmas Season! Many children were served in Beaufort County, thanks to your generous donations to Bluffton Self-Help. Each of the teachers and staff would like to thank you again for your generous gifts and treats. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful parents to support us.

       Our COVID drop-off protocol is as follows:

  • We will continue to run the children to and from their classrooms (no parents past the front foyers).
  • If anyone in your family or household is under quarantine, your child is not able to attend school.

Parent Reminders

*Drop-off cutoff is 10:00AM, unless prior arrangements have been made with the office. If your child has a Doctor’s appointment, please bring in a note of excuse.

*All children ages 1 and up should come to school with shoes and a jacket for the playground.

*Please make sure your child has extra changes of clothes in their cubbies (especially for cooler weather). Also, please remember to label everything (jackets, sweatshirts, and sweaters especially)!

*NO TOYS FROM HOME: Children are NOT allowed to bring outside toys (not even show-n-tell on Fridays). All non-essential daily items will be returned with the parent at drop-off. 

*Check daily reports for any needs such as diapers, wipes, pull-ups, etc.

Dates to remember:
