WELCOME TO GOOD SHEPHERD PREK/PRESCHOOL

 

Mrs. Raenel Baker

Thank you for entrusting your child to my care for the upcoming school year.  Know that your little one will be handled with plenty of TLC in a warm, comfortable atmosphere, all under the watchful eye of Jesus Christ. It will be an exciting year  for your child, one filled with many academic challenges, social awareness, song, dance, and plenty of learning through play and projects.

 

PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUR PREK AND/OR PRESCHOOL NEWSLETTER EACH MONTH. OUR NEWSLETTER WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT WE WILL BE WORKING ON DURING THAT MONTH, AS WELL AS WHAT SPECIAL EVENTS OR ACTIVITIES ARE TAKING PLACE.

 

*REMINDERS - updated 12/9/18

Good Shepherd School Christmas Performance will be held on December 13th at St. John Church at 7:00 pm.  If your Pre-Schooler will be attending they will be asked to arrive by 6:45 pm and go to the front of the church on the right hand side. Mrs. Galanaugh and Mrs. Menz will be waiting for the children.  I will not be able to make the performance as my grandaughters performance is the same evening.  The PreK will sing one song and then go back to the pews. You will be able to come up to the front and take your preschooler home after our song if you wish, as it will be late for them.

Our PRE-K Christmas Pageant will be held on December 20th, at 10:00 am.   Please do not arrive to church earlier than 9:45 a.m. as mass will still be in progress.  Children will arrive to school at regular time.  You are then invited to come over to school where we will have a small Christmas gathering with all the families. Your child is welcome to go home with you after our gathering or are able to stay in school for the remaider of the day.Children are welcome to bring Christmas cards into school for their classmates.  If sending cards in, please be sure that each child in the class has a card.  There are 24 students in the Pre-K.  Please have all cards signed with your child's name on the inside BUT leave the envelopes blank. Please be sure to send cards into class in a bag with your child's name marked on front.  Your child will distribute cards into the Christmas bags which each child will make. Chritmas bags will go home on the morning of our celebration. Please go over song sheets with your little one.
