The children love to see their friends outside of school!  Don't have time to eat out? Carry out orders also support GSLP! Milton's is located at 8853 Six Forks Road.

Community Service at GSLP
All preschool classes have been participating in decorating menus for the monthly Memory Café dinners at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Last month, the menus were St. Patrick's Day themed.
This month the preschoolers will be measuring rice into baggies to be given to Urban Ministries' food pantry.  If you are interested in volunteering to help the children with this project on April 25 or 26, please contact Deanna
FOP News - Teacher Appreciation Week is May 1 - 5 
The Friends of the Preschool (FOP) will be contacting you soon about what is needed for this special week. Please participate and let the teachers know how much you appreciate them. This year, in addition to their regular work, they have had to complete extra materials for our ELEA accreditation process. GSLP has the BEST teachers! They are amazing! Let's show them that we think so!  

Please consider helping our with the Graduation Reception for the 4-year-old classes on May 19.  It's nice to have the younger classes' (1, 2, and 3-year-old parents) help with this since this celebration is for the older classes and their families.  Contact Vanessa Carter if you can help.  
The Kids Loved the Traveling Tortoise Presentation!
