What's going on at messiah preschool this month?

We are all looking forward to a fun filled October.  During the first week of October all classes will learn about fire safety.  We have connections to our very own Fire Fighter Paramedic that will visit the children outside in the Memorial Garden. Ask your child about 911 and Stop, Drop, and Roll.  We will also enjoy making and eating a yummy graham cracker fire truck for our snack.

The children will also enjoy learning about Fall, pumpkins, and jack-o-lanterns along with a few fall and Halloween songs.

Thank you for all your support!  If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 813-968-9534 or send me an email at: Preschooldirector@messiahtampa.com


Blessings, Joan Brannan

  • monthly Chapel Offering: 

    Peanut Butter and Jelly for feed your neighbor

    At Messiah Lutheran Preschool the children attend Chapel once a week where spiritual growth will be developed through the teaching and learning of God’s word. Chapels are led by our Pastor, Mark Adrian Jr. or by Abby Moss, Director of Family Life Ministry. We will be concentrating on characteristics of faith (sharing, loving, caring, etc.).

    To assist us in teaching sharing and helping others, we request that each child bring an offering to Chapel. Each month we will ask the children to bring in something different that will be given to various agencies throughout the Tampa area.

    For our October chapel offering we will collect jars of peanut butter and jelly to donate to the “Feed Your Neighbor” food collection outreach. Our preschool goal is 50 jars. The children are asked to bring this offering only once during the month. Thank you for your support.

    Chapel days will be either Tuesdays or Wednesdays and are listed on the preschool’s monthly calendar.
