Bible Verse this Month
“The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY!” Psalm 126:3
Apples and Thanksgiving
Thank you for participating in the Fall Festival, Happy Fall to All! It was so nice to spend time together as a preschool family and see our adorable preschoolers perform. We'd like to send a huge thank you to the parents and preschool committee members who helped set up before the festival and worked in the kitchen. Also, thank you to everyone for helping clean up afterwards. It went smoothly and quickly!

This month, we'll learn about apples, make Thanksgiving projects, share things we are thankful for and discuss how to show our thankfulness to others.
In Chapel, we are learning the meaning of each letter in the word "JOY". We'll also be getting ready for our Christmas show, The Colors of Christmas!
 
J *= Jesus (think of what Jesus wants us to do)
O *= Others (think of others)
Y *= Yourself (then think of yourself)

The Colors of Christmas!

Our annual Christmas program will be on December 12th, at 6:30pm in the sanctuary. This year we'll be performing "The Colors of Christmas!" We would like the children to wear their Christmas best that night! That can be any nice dress or skirt or a nice shirt and pants. Everyone is welcome to join in, wearing their best Christmas clothes! Please reach out to Adrienne Mesa if you have any questions. Merry Christmas!
Mission this Month
Our mission this month is to collect new underwear for students at Gilbert Elementary, a neighboring Title I school on Elliot Rd. We know that having clean underwear at school is so helpful! New underwear, for boys or girls in any size, but especially in sizes 6-8 can be brought to the preschool office. Thank you for your contribution!
