Miscellaneous Events for the Month of June 2017

June 13, 2017

 

APPLE'S PRESCHOOL END OF THE YEAR HIGHLIGHTS

 

Apple's Preschool is very happy to say that we had a wonderful school year for 2016-2017.  The month of May was very busy with the Wedding of Q and U, the Hellertown Librarian (Miss Andrea's) visit to our classroom, the Pre-K field trip to the Lehigh Valley Zoo, our end-of-year preparation, along with all of our other learning activities and fun.  

 

We welcomed everyone who attended our Closing Program which was held on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the church sanctuary, followed by a Make-Your-Own Ice Cream Sundae party in the fellowship hall. 

 

Pictures from Beach Day, Red Nose Day, Field Trip to LV Zoo, our practice for the Closing Program, Fun at the Park, and some additional photos.

 

At this time we have 32 students enrolled for the 2017-2018 school year and we have opened a PM Three Year Old Class.

 

We are very proud of our graduates that will be entering kindergarten in the fall and very excited for all who are returning to our classroom, along with new friends that will be joining us.  Have a safe and happy summer!!!

                                       CARD SHOWERS FOR 2 KIDS—PLEASE ! 

 

We would very much appreciate you sending a birthday card to our "NJ Child" in Honduras.  Fernando will be 4 years old on July 27, 2017.  Postage is $1.15 for an average greeting card.  Since it takes some time for the card to get to him, please send it soon to:

The second card shower is for a 7 year old little boy, Evan, who will be "quarantined" for the next 3 months because of his body rejecting his transplanted kidney.  Evan has know a lifetime of doctors and hospitals.  Let's lift his spirits by showering him and his family with love and care from our New Jerusalem family with a thinking of you/encouragement card.
