Congratulations Jaelyn on becoming a big sister to baby Josiah!

We have a new face in the office!  Mrs. Cristen Balk is joining our team!  We are so pleased to have her joining us.  Cristen has a wealth of experience in office management and accounting.  She and her family belong to Regina Coeli Parish.  Her son, Michael was enrolled here during our very first year as a preschool/prek.  Please stop by and meet Cristen.  She will be primarily in the office but will also be learning the routines in each classroom in the event an assistant teacher needs a substitute.
This will be our 6th year supporting The Valentine Project!  This charity helps to bring surprise valentine boxes to children (and their siblings) with cancer and other illnesses.  Each participant chooses a child and begins collecting items to send for Valentines Day.  Both of my children have been recipients of boxes from this organization and those Valentine Boxes lifted spirits on some difficult days.  Our two children this year are Asher- 3 year old & Emma- 4 year old.  Please join our faculty in collecting items for these two children!  We will collect until 1/17/20.  Donation boxes are outside of the office.

Feel free to donate age-appropriate toys, gifts, puzzles, and candy ... anything you think would warm a child's heart!

Please welcome new students Eleanor to Ms. Ashley's & welcome back to Amiyah to Ms. Lexie's class!
