A Word From Our Director
**SPRING PARENT REMINDERS**
*Just a reminder that Training Depot closes at 4pm on Good Friday, April 15! Late fees will double so please make sure to pick up your child no later than 4pm on Good Friday! Soccer Shots is not in session on Good Friday!
*We are having our class Easter Egg Hunts on Thursday, April 14. Please make sure your child brings their Easter Basket! Egg hunts will begin at 9am; please make sure your child is attendance by 9am so that they are able to participate with their class.
*We are asking every parent to bring 12 filled plastic eggs with individually wrapped candy for the egg hunt (no peanut products please). We will compile all the eggs brought from every child in each class, then children will be able to ‘hunt’ for a compilation of the eggs brought. They will not be taking home the exact eggs that they bring. See your child’s teacher if you have any questions regarding this.
*CONGRATULATIONS to these Top 3 WINNERS for our Spring Fundraiser: 1st Place Winner of a full week’s tuition is Preston in Alligators, 2nd Place Winner of $75 towards a week’s tuition is Kyrie in Dolphins, and the 3rd Place Winner of $50 towards a week’s tuition is Mila in Dolphins! The overall TOP SELLING class is the Dolphin class with the Alligators coming in 2nd and the Owls coming in 3rd place!! All of these classes will have a celebratory party for their efforts! Thanks so much to everyone that sold items for our fundraiser! We greatly appreciate you!!
*Next week our church is hosting a special conference for many Pastors and leaders across the DFW Metroplex and West Texas. The affect this event will have on TD families relates to parking & our entry door. Because of the many Pastors & Ministry Leaders that will be attending this event, our Training Depot entrance may be open. To ensure security during this time, our Office Staff will be continuously monitoring guests and directing them towards the TMC gym as well as our Security Officer will be present in the building to help as needed. NCA is closing school next week on Wednesday thru Friday. Training Depot will be open as usual during our regular business hours and we will have a classroom available for our NCA children needing full time care Wednesday thru Friday. Please let us know if you are in need of care for your school age child during these days. We will be asking all our visitors to leave parking for our TD families in the designated areas close to the TD entrance. We are happy to help in any way we can and appreciate your patience. I will be in attendance at the Nazarene District Assembly & will not be in the Training Depot Office during these days. You can reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems. I will be checking my email on a daily basis (hopefully). Thank you for your patience as we navigate any challenges we may face during this upcoming week.
*SAVE THE DATE: Spring Program & Pre-K Graduation is Monday night, May 23 at 7pm in the TMC gym. The Giraffe, Kangaroo, Owl, & Raccoon classes will be participating in this program. ALL Training Depot families are invited to attend!
*Promotion Day is coming up on Tuesday, May 31. If your child is an Alligator or Dolphin, please be working on potty training for your child. All children must be fully potty trained before moving up to the Giraffes or Kangaroos. Fully potty trained means that your child has gone a full two weeks with no accidents including during nap time.
*REFERRAL INCENTIVE: Training Depot is growing! It is our desire to continue to thrive and prosper. Our mission is to minister to as many in our community as possible; therefore, we have set goals to continue to grow as a ministry. We are seeking to partner with our current parents to help increase our STAFF as we prepare for our Summer Program. We are implementing a Referral Incentive that will be available through the end of June. Any current family that refers a potential STAFF member to Training Depot and that person is hired and decides to sign on as a teacher with us, you are eligible for this program thru the end of May. Please note the new teacher needs to include your name as a referral at the time their employment begins. After they have been hired and completed their initial first two weeks of training, you will receive $200 tuition credit towards your weekly tuition. After they have completed their first 3 months of employment and are an employee in good standing, you will receive TWO FREE weeks of tuition.
Each week I like to let you know what we learned in this week's chapel as well as sharing with you the bible verse that your child is learning for this week and next week. Each classroom has 'BLUE' tickets for bible verse memory. Children can earn a red ticket for behavior as well as a blue ticket for memorizing their bible verse each week. When they earn a blue ticket, they will have the opportunity at pick up time to stop by my office and share their bible memory with me as well as choose a prize! This is a great way to help them hide God's word in their hearts at a young age! See your child's teacher or one of our office staff if you have any questions.
This week the Raccoon class led chapel; we learned about Palm Sunday and how all the people praised Jesus as our Messiah. The children acted out the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem on the donkey. Chapel closed with Alex leading us in the Lord's Prayer. Next week our Owl class will lead chapel.
