From the Director
Woo Hoo! October is one of my favorite months at Compass Christian Preschool. Our students will get to experience so many wonderful activities this month. The Colleyville Fire Department will visit us on October 8th, the students will all get to sit outside with their class and watch the firefighters show us the truck, lights, siren and tools. We will also be teaching the children how to rake leaves, this is a fantastic chore for them to do at home. Chores are a very important part of a young child’s development. Teaching them how to help and be responsible for their belongings is a skill you want to teach now. It is one thing that I wish I would have focused on when my children were young. It is much harder to get them on board when they are older. I strongly believe that chores are part of being in a family and should be expected of everyone in the family.
I will finish the month up by making pumpkin waffles with each class. The students will learn how to measure, stir, pour and whisk the batter. This is the 29th year that I will be making pumpkin waffles with young children. The first class of students I taught in Connecticut are now in their early thirties and having children of their own. It brings me great joy that many of them are now making pumpkin waffles with their children. Don’t worry we will send the recipe home with your child.
Thank you so much for supporting us as we do everything possible to keep your family and our staff healthy. We appreciate you wearing masks in line for drop off and pick up as well as picking them up promptly when they are showing signs of illness. Together we can keep Compass Christian Preschool open this year and provide your child an outstanding year. We can really use substitute teachers so if you are interested let us know. Have an amazing time with your children outdoors this month and let them rake some leaves!!
The preschool needs to hire a few substitute teachers and an assistant teacher. These are perfect positions for parents with a child enrolled at Compass Christian Preschool. Applications can be submitted at www.mycompasschurch.com , click on the link for a “preschool substitute” position.
