Letter to Parents- We are Moving!

As all of you know, the big for sale sign outside has been a thorn in our side all year.  Many of you have asked about the future of our preschool and where we will be located next year if the building is sold.  Although we ultimately wanted to purchase the building ourselves, God had bigger plans for us. 

I wanted to let all our current families be the first to know that we will be moving out of our current location this summer and moving into St. Ludmilas Elementary School, 215 21st Ave. SW.  St. Ludmilas is a private catholic school located next to St. Ludmilas Catholic Church.

St. Ludmilas announced to their families that the school will closing after this school year the same week our article came out in the paper about us needing a new home.  Fate brought our two churches, St. Ludmilas Catholic and Lovely Lane United Methodist, together.  We started talking, had several meetings and the official decision was made last night.  

For those that live outside the Trinity Lane neighborhood I wanted to give you a sense of direction as to where our new location resides.  It is 1.5 miles from Trinity Lane or a 4 minute car ride.  It is 5.9 miles from Lovely Lane Preschool or 8 minute drive.  The school is easily accessible from the interstate like us, but is a little further south ( close to Wilson Ave. exit).  

We are sad to be leaving our current location, but beyond excited for the possibilities this new location holds including remaining in a Christian environment, a huge amount of empty space in the school building for us to potentially expand, a large parking lot, 1st floor classrooms (no more stairs!), land to possibly build a brand new playground and an existing full court gymnasium for those cold or rainy days.  

This is all the info I can give at this time.  Registration for the 2018-19 school year 2-4 yr old preschool will happen in February as planned, with hopefully more details to pass along then.  But I wanted to let families know as soon as possible that next year will for sure be in the soon former St. Ludmilas Elementary School building so that you can think about how that will work for your family.  We hope the majority of our families will take this new journey with us!    

One last thought I had about all of this is what a great community we live in and how powerful it is to see God's work before our eyes.  We have two different churches, one Catholic, one Methodist, that have come together for one common goal- to provide the best possible education to ALL children in our community.  I'm really not trying to present any political view here, just glorifying the fact that when people get to know each other they may find they have more in common than they do differences and at the core is a belief in God.  When one door closes, another opens :)
