June Newsletter

“You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all of your heart”. -Jeremiah 29:13

Pre-K Monthly Theme

This summer, our theme is VBS’ Destination Dig. We’ll become junior archaeologists and study tangible pieces of the past to learn about who Jesus is and why He came.

Week 1: Jesus Came as God Promised– Jesus is the Savior God promised

Week 2: Jesus Demonstrated God’s Power– Jesus has the power God promised

Week 3: Jesus Was Betrayed and Rejected– Jesus knew what would happen and still  followed God’s plan

Week 4: Jesus Died and Rose Again– Jesus fulfilled God’s plan to be our Savior

Director’s Notes

We have a few upcoming events! We will be hosting “Donuts for Dad” on Friday, June 18th at drop-off. We encourage all dads to drop off this morning for donuts and other special treats! Pelican graduation will be on Saturday, June 12th from 10 – 11AM for those who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall. Summer Camp Kick-Off is on Monday, June 21st for Kindergarten-3rd Graders. We’re looking forward to a fun, exciting summer!

   Our COVID drop off protocol has been modified:

  • We will continue to run the children to and from their classrooms (no parents past the front foyers).
  • Temperature checks are no longer required at drop off.
  • Masks are now optional but still encouraged.

Parent Reminders

*LCD follows heat advisories daily. Playground times will deviate based on the weather.

*Be sure to apply your bug spray and sunscreen at home prior to coming to class. We may re-apply in the afternoon if needed. You may now bring in LABELED sunscreen and bug spray. A Doctor’s note is not required. And remember save those cute Spring sandals, flip-flops and Crocs for home. They are hazardous on the playground and the children can easily slip in them.

*It is vital that you use your fingerprint to check your child in/out. If you are unable to sign in/out through our computer touch screen, please see the office for a bypass code. Also, please remember to use your security cards to enter the buildings. Please make sure to always have yours on hand. If lost or if you would like to add on family members, they are $10 per card.

*No nuts/peanut butter food or treats allowed. We are a nut free campus.

*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. 

*A child may not be in underwear until they are 30 days accident free, documented by the preschool. Potty charts are noted daily. All children non potty trained will be in a pull-up until accident free for 30 days. Rate changes will be applied once the child has been documented accident free.

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