Chocolate Bars:

The chocolate bar sale is doing well. We still have boxes available if anyone needs more boxes. For every box you sell your name is put in for a drawing for a gift basket.

Weather Info:

Anytime Oak Hills Schools are closed or on a delay due to inclement weather or other conditions, CUMC Preschool will also be closed. In the event that CUMC is closed and Oak Hills is not, you will be contacted by a Board member by 7 AM that morning. If you need to be contacted at a number other than one listed on the class roster, please let me know immediately. If you chose not to have your name and number listed on the roster, please email me with your name and phone number to ensure that you will be called.

Drop Off: When pulling into the Church parking lot to drop your child off, there are a few rules that need to be observed for the safety of the children as well as Karen and myself:

Sloooow down to a safe speed!

Put your car in Park until your child is safely out of the car/van.

Do Not let your children out of the car/van until Karen or I get them out.

Please do not use your cell phone while doing drop off.


Buddy Card

We have Buddy cards available for purchase. The cards are $10 each and the Preschool will get back $5 for every card sold. The cards would be a great stocking stuffer or Holiday gift for family and friends. The cards will be available throughout the school year.

Reminders:

If you are a Parent Helper please arrive at 9:10.

Please put your child’s name on their lunchbox, thermos, tote bag, jackets, and coats.

Empty plastic bags every day, so the teacher knows you have seen the items inside the bag.

Remove all strings from your child’s coats or jackets. This can cause strangulation when they are caught on slides, climbers, etc.

INKJETS: We are collecting empty inkjet cartridges. The ink cartridges must have a print head to qualify. Not sure? Bring it in anyway and we will check it out. Place in a Ziploc bag or the original box and place it in the green box outside of my office.


Tyson Project A+: Simply clip and send in the Tyson A+ panel from all your Tyson chicken and deli product packaging. We earn 24 cents on every label we turn in to Tyson!!! Talk about low-effort fundraising! Just make sure you clip the entire 1-2-3 A+ panel and send it to school in your child’s bag or place your labels in the red and white checked box outside of my office.

Happy Halloween,

Paula
