Greetings, Weekday School families. I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and New Year holiday. Post-Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. I relish how things slow way down and get quiet. Granted, I don’t have preschoolers at home so maybe your post-Christmas has been, well...rowdy?
You have probably heard the expression “the days are long, but the years are short” to describe the experience of parenting. Is this ringing true for you? The daily demands of parenting can feel never ending. As we begin 2019 together, when you need staying power for the long days of parenting, remember Galatians 6:9: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Whenever you feel anxious about the speed with which the year is passing, find reassurance here: “'For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”(Jeremiah 29:11)
At Weekday School, January is a month of new beginnings and planning for the future.
We are excited to welcome our 2 Plus families who begin preschool with us this month. Tuesdays and Thursdays are even better with the addition of these sweet little ones.
Planning for the future:
January is the time we open registration for the upcoming school year (2019-20) to current 2 Day, 2 Plus, and 3 Day students. I encourage you to save your spot before the January 31st deadline. After that time, we open enrollment to our waiting list and the community at large. Find the enrollment link, and 2019-20 tuition/fees below.
If you’re a parent of a current 3 Day student, you’re invited to attend the 4 Day Preview on Wednesday, January 16th right after morning carpool (9:15am in Room 133). This will be a brief but informative time for you to hear about how we prepare our students for kindergarten including a visit to our 4 Day classrooms. RSVP here.
Finally, in the weeks ahead we begin recruiting for our 19-20 Advisory Board and Fun Fair Committee. If you are a parent who is interested in getting more involved at Weekday School these are fantastic opportunities. Watch your child’s school bag and email for more details soon.
Whether you make resolutions, choose a “word” for the year, or have launched yourself into a robust diet/exercise routine, may the newness of 2019 remind you that “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.” (Lamentations 3:22-23).
Happy New Year
