As you all know, our beloved preschool director and teacher, Teresa Todt, retired this past school year to spend more time with her grandchildren. It is very strange not to see her lovely smile and hear her heart-felt words of encouragement around here this summer. Her office is changing as I am now stepping into the role of preschool teacher. I am ever thankful for Teresa’s guidance this past year and for all the wonderful books and materials she left behind for me to use. I hope and pray that God will continue His good work in the preschool through my role here. The director duties will be split between Tess Richardson and myself as applicable. I will be handling all the preschool curriculum, scheduling, parent/church communications, and student needs whereas Tess will be managing the tuition and budget matters for the preschool.
During this year of transition, we humbly ask for your prayers for God’s wisdom, guidance, and strength as we lead the preschool to serve the students and their families with the love of Jesus. We also humbly ask for your continued support of the preschool as a way that our congregation serves the community and surrounding areas with a quality, Christ-centered early childhood program. Our church members have been so wonderful in not only praying for the preschool but also donating their time, skills, talents, supplies, and monetary gifts. Thank you so much!
The mission of Trinity Lutheran Preschool comes from 1 Corinthians 10:31, which says, “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” May ALL we do with the preschool bring GLORY to GOD for the sake of growing His Kingdom by strengthening the faith of our little ones and their families! The new school year will begin on August 27. Registration is open for all those interested in enrolling their child. Children must be 3, 4, or 5 years old by November 1 to register. Enrollment Forms and red brochures are located on the table by the entrance to the sanctuary or online at http://www.trinityauburn.org/
Playground Needs: I am on the look-out for Little Tykes or Playschool type climbing equipment for the playground to replace a couple of the older pieces we have. If you know anyone whose children has outgrown their outdoor play equipment and would like to donate or sell it, please let me know or have them call the preschool at 217-438-6823. Thank you!
