King’s Preschool: Please contact Principal Ruby Jain at rjain@kingsschools.org if you have any questions.

Welcome back, King’s Preschool Families! We hope that you spent a joyous and relaxing Thanksgiving with your family. Returning after a long weekend of turkey dinners, precious time with family, and extra days spent on rest and fun was made easier with our Christmas Celebration Concert to look forward to!

For weeks, our classrooms diligently practiced their Christmas songs, and they were so eager to send their sweet voices to you over LIVE stream. Thank you for sending them in their Christmas best, and for joining us for this virtual special occasion! I think we can all agree that there is no better way to start December than to hear children singing Christmas melodies. It certainly put everyone at King’s Preschool in the Christmas mood. Classrooms are slowly transforming into winter wonderlands, full of Christmas trees, books, and decorations. We can’t wait to share these next few weeks with your children, preparing to celebrate Jesus’ birth!

Teacher Appreciation Jar
Through the month of December, the King’s Preschool Parent Support Team will be collecting funds for teacher appreciation. If you would care to contribute, a Teacher Appreciation jar will be placed on the table during drop off and pick up. Alternatively, you can donate through Venmo via Alexandra Flugstad. When donating via Venmo, please include your student’s name/s and TA Fund in the comments. We truly appreciate the Parent Support Team and all of our preschool families for making sure our teachers and staff feel loved and appreciated!

 Hand in Hand Toy Drive
We are amazed that all of our Hand in Hand gift tags were claimed in only two days! Thank you, preschool families, for your thoughtfulness and generosity! Please remember to drop off your unwrapped toys/gifts, labeled with the Hand in Hand gift tag by Monday, December, 7th. Items can be placed beneath our Christmas tree at drop off or pick up. We look forward to making the wishes of children in need come true with your help this Christmas season!
