Gilbert Preschool School Newsletter
July 2018
Bible Verse this Month
This is the day that the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Psalm 118:24
Welcome!
We’re so excited to welcome you to the FUMC of Gilbert Preschool! Your child will make new friends, learn age appropriate academics and learn about God’s love! Our themes for the Fall will be: Welcome to School, Creation, Noah’s Ark, Thankful for Fall, and Christmas, Jesus’ Birthday!
Communication is extremely important as we partner along side each other to teach these precious preschoolers. Your child’s teacher has a Welcome Letter included in this packet, and she will email a weekly newsletter once school begins. Each month, you’ll also receive a school newsletter, via email , that will include important dates as well as suggested activities that will enhance the curriculum. Please read the updated school calendar included in this packet as some dates have changed. Don’t hesitate to call or email with any questions!  
We’re so blessed to be working with you and  your child this year!
We have a few spots open in our T/Th 3s class and space available in Parent Tot. Please pass this along to family and friends who you think might be interested and give us a call for a tour or more information!
