May Preschool News


It’s hard to believe the end of the school year is upon us.  We have really enjoyed getting to know your child.  Many thanks to everyone who donated time, money and talents to make this a great year for us! 

Each year our four-year-old classes take a field trip to Balls Creek and Sherrills Ford Elementary Schools to visit the kindergarten classroom and have lunch in the cafeteria.  Our visit to Sherrills Ford Elementary will be Monday, May 7th.  Plan on being at the school by 10:00 am.  We will be visiting Balls Creek Elementary on Tuesday, May 15th.  Plan on being at the school by 11:00 am.  We will meet in the lobby of both schools.  All adults attending will need to bring a valid driver’s license in order to enter the school.  The Preschool is unable to transport children, so you will be responsible for your child’s transportation to the schools.  Please let me know if you plan to attend and how many.  There will still be class for those not attending the field trips. 

This month, we will be selling Little Caesars’s Pizza Kits and Cookie Dough.  We have had huge success in the past selling these pizza kits and are looking forward to providing them to you again.  This is a great time to stock up for the upcoming summer months!  Funds raised will be used to help support our Scholarship Fund.  Our Scholarship Fund gives families who may need some financial assistance, an opportunity to send their child to preschool.    Everyone loves pizza and cookies, so make sure and ask family members and neighbors!  These kits can be stored in the freezer and make a quick meal for the kids.  As always, we appreciate your support and look forward to a great fundraising success! 

Orders will be due Thursday, May 17th.  The kits will be delivered on Friday, May 25th and can be picked up that afternoon when you come to get your child.  All money should be collected at time of the sale.  Please make checks payable to Mt. Pleasant Preschool. 

The end of the year assessments will be performed this month.  We hope that you are able to see growth in the following areas: social/emotional development, physical development, cognitive development and language development. 

Graduation practice will start on Monday, May 14th.  The four-year-olds will have a short practice every day beginning at 9:30 am.  It is important that your child be at preschool for these practices.  Graduation is at 7:00 pm on Thursday, May 31st.  We ask that all attending bring a finger food to share.  Only the graduating four-year-olds will be participating, but everyone is welcome.  Our last day of preschool will be Wednesday, May 30th. 

I sent an email to all the parents of the four-year-old children about needing a picture of your child when they were younger.  You may email me a picture or text one to me before Friday, May 18th.  The email is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Our End of the Year field trip will be Friday, May 18th.  Steve Hager (Elizabeth’s grandfather in the 3’s class), has offered his barn for us to get together and have a cookout.  There will be hayrides, animals and lots of space for the kids to enjoy the outdoors.  This is a great time for all the families to fellowship!  The Preschool will supply the hamburgers, hotdogs and drinks.  I am asking parents to bring some type of dessert to share, maybe even some homemade ice cream. 

We are currently registering for the Summer Program.  The early registration fee will be $25.00.  After May 18th, the registration fee will be $35.00.  This fee reserves your child a spot in our Summer Program and is also used to cover the cost of supplies used.  You may choose which week works best for your summer schedule and pay only for that week or pay by the month.  Payments for that week will be due on the first preschool day of each month.  If you pay for all the weeks in one month, you will receive a $10.00 discount. 

Everyone will be receiving an email with a survey from the preschool.  You may need to check your junk mail if you don’t see it.  We hope you take the time to complete it.  We value your opinions.  This helps us to remain the best preschool in the area! 

Thanks again for all the support we have at the preschool!  I hope you have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you again next year!  We wish the graduating class the best and we love them all!
