What's going on at messiah preschool this month?

     From the Director....


Notes from the Director  

This month we will be giving thanks for our many blessings. Classes will be learning about the first Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving traditions. All classes will participate in our Preschool’s version of a Thanksgiving feast on November 17,18 & 19. The School Board will prepare the food, the children will help set the tables and we all will have fun celebrating Thanksgiving in our classrooms.

Our school remains healthy and COVID free. We want to send a big THANK YOU to all our parents for being so diligent and keeping your child home if they are not feeling 100%.  I also want to thank the teachers for keeping the classrooms and toys super clean and disinfected. All your effort is paying off. 

We also want to remind parents and caregivers that adults must wear a mask in the carline at arrival and dismissal and when interacting with the staff. 

              If you would like to be part of our “Lunch Bunch Connection”, where parents trade text messages regarding who will be staying for Lunch Bunch on a certain day, please send Miss Joan an email at: preschooldirector@messiahtampa.com , or fill out the form that was sent home in your child’s backpack. We will be happy to add you to the group text.


Thank you again. Messiah Lutheran Preschool’s parents are the best!   



Judy Patterson, Preschool Director
