It is such a blessing to view the season of Advent through the eyes of our young friends! PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR AS A REMINDER TO ATTEND OUR SPECIAL “CHRISTMAS CHAPEL TIME AND FAMILY RECEPTION” in our Christian Family Life Center at noon on your child’s class chapel day (either Tuesday, December 18 or Wednesday, December 19—check your child’s class calendar for the precise date.) Please be seated for the service by 11:50am so that we can begin promptly at noon.

THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OF THOSE PARENTS WHO GAVE THEIR TIME AND RESOURCES TO MAKE OUR “THANKS FOR GIVING WHEEL-A-THON” A SUCCESS! If possible, we would like to have all outstanding pledges submitted to the preschool office before December 14th. 

PLEASE BE PATIENT! We understand that it can be frustrating when car line moves slowly. But, once is a while we have a car that takes longer than usual to unload. Please do not pull around that car as it can create a safety hazard for our students and staff.

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY REMINDER: Our program follows the Chesterfield County School System for closings due to inclement weather. If public schools are delayed one hour, we will open one hour late (10:30am) but close at the normal time. If Chesterfield County schools open two hours late, we will open two hours late (11:30am) and close at 1:30pm. You may send a packed lunch or larger snack for your child. Lunch Bunch will not be extended due to school delays. The normal 3:30pm dismissal remains.
