Good Beginnings Preschool Shares Information for the 2018-19 School Year

Posted July 23rd, 2018

I am looking forward to the 2018-19 preschool year with returning staff members Dorothy Janzen and Cora Duerksen! Dorothy and I will teach the Prekindergarten Class and Dorothy and Cora will teach the Younger Class. Both classes are full!

We are excited about implementing more of our new curriculum this year. Get Set for School is a nationally recognized curriculum focused on social/emotional development, kindergarten readiness, and motor skills. Thanks to the Barbara Flory Memorial Fund, we were able to purchase curriculum resources and all staff received training for the curriculum this summer. We were very thankful for this opportunity and thank the Flory family for making it possible!

Parent orientation meetings are on Thursday, August 23. Younger class parents meet at 6:30 p.m. and Prekindergarten Class parents meet at 7:25. The Prekindergarten Class begins on Wednesday, August 29 and Friday, August 31 and the Younger Class begins on Thursday, August 30. We are looking forward to greeting returning preschoolers and meeting new students!

Thank you for your ongoing support!

Safe Zone Trainings

The gay-straight alliance GLOW will be hosting two Safe Zone Trainings on the McPherson College campus on Thursday, September 28th, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. in Miller Library Room 103 and from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in Melhorn Room 113.  The Safe Zone symbol is a message that the space designated as such is a welcoming place for members of the LGBTQ community and their allies.  Safe Zone training provides accurate information about sexual orientation and/or gender identity and provides a time and space for the trainee to consider how they can be understanding, supportive and trustworthy to members of the LGBTQ community.

If you would like to participate in one of these trainings, please contact Becki Bowman by noon on Tuesday, September 26.
