The Central Christian Preschool will be re-opening its doors on Tuesday, September 6. After a two-year hiatus, we will begin this new version of the preschool by offering one 3’s class and one 4’s/5’s class. According to the most recent update from our director, Melissa Miller, the 4’s/5’s has reached maximum enrollment and is entirely full!! There are still openings in the 3’s class, but the preschool will be opening with over 20 students! We are excited about welcoming these families and students into the Central community. Whether they are members of Central or have faith communities elsewhere, we want them to feel at “home” every time they are here.
The preschool board is comprised of 7 church members and 2 parents. Due to the fact that neither our director nor anyone else on our board has gotten to know any of the parents very well, we will start the year without the 2 parent representatives. We will seek to add them sometime during the coming months. The rest of the preschool board is configured as follows (dates indicate when their term of service ends): Mike Munos, president (2023), Gretchen Kirby, secretary (2024), Julia Zmucki, treasurer (2025), Debbie Hoffert, volunteer liaison (2024), Ellen Damery (2025), David King, property liaison (2024 or 2025), and Carrie Funk (2024) .
As volunteer liaison between the preschool and the congregation, Debbie Hoffert will be sharing periodically ways for members to be involved in the hands-on support of the preschool. Here is one such volunteer opportunity:
The Preschool Board is really excited about the reopening of Central’s Preschool on September 6th. We are starting with two classes. Our new Director, Melissa Miller, would like to have a volunteer from the church in each class during the first two weeks of school. After that, she will welcome parent volunteers. Volunteers are needed from 8:30 to 11:30 on Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday in the three-year-old class and Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday in the four-year-old class. You may choose to volunteer one day, two days or all days.
Also, a Family Fun Night is scheduled for September 28th and three greeters are needed to assist / direct parents from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. If you are interested in helping, please contact Debbie Hoffert.
Blessings – Michael
