This Month’s Preschool Classes

There are still a few spots open for the Fall Semester. We offer a 2-day class for children three years of age and a 3-day class for children 4 years of age.  Parents interested in this program can contact the church office by calling 244-2355.

Three Day Class

Dear Church Members,

Our theme for the 3-day preschool class for the month of October is fire safety.  We will discuss fire safety rules, emergency situations, and learning to dial 9-1-1.  We will also conduct a fire drill with the students.

We will be going on our first field trip of the year to Flinchbaugh’s Orchard and Farm Market.  The kids get a tour of the orchard, pick some apples, learn about farm life and finally sample some homemade apple cider.  We will also enjoy Halloween with our first classroom party of the year.  The students have an opportunity to dress up in their costumes and parade around the block.

Failor’s Photography came  to take a class and individual pictures at the end of September.  Pastor Tim has also started our chapel time with the students and they respond so well to him and his lessons.

Our October is full of exciting experiences that make learning fun for the students.

As always thanks for your continued support.

Two Day Class

Dear Church Members,

Well, we have had a few changes in our 2-day preschool class since we started.  We have a new Teacher Assistant.  Her name is Miss Tammy Rutzebeck, and she lives in New Freedom.  She has two children, a son and a daughter, who are students at North Hopewell-Winterstown Elementary School in the Red Lion School District.  She and I have been working very well together, and have so much in common, so it should be a blast of a year!

October starts us off with the letter “B” and we will be learning about butterflies.  Then on to letter “C”, the start of what makes the butterfly, the Caterpillars!   Lots of bugs this month, but nature is always interesting.  Letter “D” gets us to dogs, especially dogs that are fire dogs,  October is Fire Prevention month, so we will be learning all about STOP, DROP and ROLL.  We will be practicing how to take care of ourselves, just in case.  Our Field trip will be to the Red Lion Fire Department to learn much more about how these fine people take care of us.  Then, the last day of October, the 31st, is our HALLOWEEN FUNDAY with lots of fun and scary stuff.  So, enjoy your Halloween, and

Thank you for all your support.
