I am so blessed to work in a place where I experience God’s love every day! Seeing the faces of your children each day reminds me of how mighty and loving our God is. As they learn and grow, their eyes light up with excitement! Watching and listening to them is truly a blessing to me! I pray that you will cherish these early years with your children. Let them minister to you. God’s love is amazing!
Our monthly church newsletter, “The Shepherd” is featuring our Preschool and Kindergarten this month. I have put a hard copy of “The Shepherd” in your child’s bag so you can see the section featuring our school AND give you a glimpse of what is going on in our church and community. Wendy Fox, our School IT Administrator and Computer teacher, did an amazing job of highlighting our school in “The Shepherd”! Visit our church website, www.newnanfumc.org, for more information about the church staff and the various ministries that our church offers.
Teacher Appreciation Week: May 17-21: We celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week during the last week of our school year. Please take a moment to express appreciation to your child’s teachers. These teachers dedicate much more time than just the hours they are here at school to insure your child has a great experience while he/she is at school… in addition to planting the seeds of God’s love!
Lunch and Learn is PAY BY THE DAY in MAY! Send payment in your child’s lunch or in the school bag each day your child stays for lunch and learn for the month of May. We do not bill you for Lunch and Learn for the month of May. If you forget to send it, we will collect it in the carpool line when you pick your child up that afternoon.
Lunch and Learn End of Year Party is Wednesday, May 19. Send a lunch with your child. Lunch and Learn will last until 2pm. Carpool will begin at 1:45. The charge for Lunch and Learn for this day ONLY is $10. We have 2 large bouncy houses, which will be inside the Parish Hall, and games planned. This is the last day of Lunch and Learn. AGAIN, carpool for pickup on May 19 only, will begin at 1:45 pm AND the charge for your child to attend is $10.
If your child does not normally attend on Wednesday, May 19, you may drop your child off during carpool pick up time, 11:30-11:45. Send $10 and a lunch with your child. Let your teacher know if you will be dropping your child off. Teachers will be outside in carpool to get your child out of the car. Then, return at 1:45 to pick your child up!
Gift for Security Officers: Avery Raptis will be collecting donations for an end-of-the-year gift for our security officers. More information will be coming about how to get your donations to Avery. We gifted $200 per officer (7 officers) at Christmas and each officer was so thankful and appreciative, not only for your donation but also for your support.
Wow! We had an amazing response! Thank you for your support of Summer Enrichment! I will be depositing the Summer Enrichment payments this week.

Thank you, parents, for supporting our teachers and me during these unusual circumstances this year.
