What's going on at messiah preschool this month?

     From the Director....

           Welcome to another busy and exciting month at Messiah Lutheran Church Preschool.

April 13 & 14 will be our class Easter parties. Please watch for a note in your child’s backpack as to how you can help.

Wednesday, April 20th at 9:15am, we will celebrate Easter with a special Easter chapel. Only the children who attend on those days will participate. Please watch for the invitation in your child’s backpack.

       2022-2023 Registration: We greatly appreciate your support and if someone you refer to our preschool enrolls his/her child we will thank you for your referral by giving you $50 to use at Early Care or Lunch Bunch.

We appreciate you taking the time to fill out the     Parent Survey for the upcoming National Lutheran School Accreditation. Your input is very valuable to us as it helps us know what we are doing well and a opportunity to grow to make the preschool even better.

       Preschool Service Project: The preschool has once again partnered with the Guardian ad Litem-Voices for Children program to provide individual hygiene bags to the children who are placed in a safe home at a moment’s notice. How can you help us?  Please collect unused hotel shampoo, conditioner, soap and cream bottles and send them in a bag in your child’s backpack. The preschool children will group them together and make the hygiene bag.  This will be an ongoing project, so please keep us in mind as you travel. Thank you for your support with this project.

       Again, thank you for all your support!  We are looking forward to a great March.


Blessings– Joan Brannan, Director

         Volunteers from Messiah Lutheran Church sponsor a monthly birthday party at the Carrollwood Care Center for their residents. Our chapel offering this month will be items to be given as gifts to the residents during these parties.

          Suggestions of items for gifts include socks, slippers, picture frames, playing cards, small stuffed animals, etc. Gifts are needed for both men and women. The Dollar Store is a good place to find the needed items.
