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

It feels like Christmas is right around the corner as more and more decorations go up in our King’s Preschool classrooms. Stockings are being hung. A glorious assortment of Charlie Brown Christmas trees are being put up and decorated by eager little hands. Snowmen and angels, Santas and reindeer are all smiling upon our classrooms in anticipation and delight. Sensory bins are overflowing with Christmas colors, decorations, and snow, and jingle bells. I’ve even seen laughter-filled snowball fights in some of our classrooms, with sparkling pompom snowballs sailing through the air.

But most important of all, some big and some small are the beautiful nativity scenes that are appearing in every classroom. Baby Jesus is the highlight in every classroom, and the story of His birth is lighting all of our hearts with hope, both teachers and children alike. We hope that His joy and peace fill you up during this Christmas season and beyond!

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
Thank you, preschool families, for your thoughtfulness and generosity! This week, our office was flooded with Christmas gifts for our toy drive, ready to be delivered to children in need through Hand in Hand. We are so excited to make the wishes of children in need come true with your help this Christmas season!
