STORYTIME WITH PASTOR JEFF VAMOS

A monthly visit with the Owls Class

Once a month, Pastor Jeff will come down to the classroom to read a story with the Owls, stories that carry a simple moral message that is broadly compatible with Presbyterian teachings but also open and non-sectarian.

PCOL wants to foster a relationship with the children and families of LPP so they know the school is connected to a religious congregation -- that the church cares about the parents and children, is there for them, and certainly that families are welcome to participate in the broader ministry of the congregation.
Cold and flu season is just around the corner.

SEASONAL FLU VACCINES

Did you know? The State of New Jersey requires all preschool children to have a seasonal flu vaccination each year between September and December 31, 2016.  Please make sure to do this and give me documentation for your child's file.

The Susan Bachus Scholarship Fund

Established in 2015 by the LPP Executive Board to celebrate Susan's many years
of teaching and nurturing children.

Susan retired in 2015 after devoting 31 years to this Nursery School she loved.  She served as teacher, director and co-director, and still knows the names of parents and children--now adults--if they happen to meet in the grocery store!

To make a contribution, please send your donation to LPPreschool, 2688 Main Street, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648.  Checks can be made payable to LPP, and should include "SUSAN BACHUS SCHOLARSHIP FUND" in the note on your check.

For information on applying for scholarship assistance,
please consult the Preschool Director.

Preschool parents are always welcome to attend meetings or suggest agenda items. Your feedback on any aspect of the school's life is valued. Contact Board President Sherri Ahlers, sherriahlers@gmail.com.
