Discovery Place News

DiscoveryLogoHappy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

Discovery Place Preschool has been having a very busy and fun year. We are now accepting registrations for the 2016/2017 preschool year so please spread the word to your family, friends and neighbors who may be considering preschool for their three and four year old children. We will accept registrations until we have full enrollment. The registration form is available on the church website, in the church office and at the information desk in the Gathering Place of St. Matthew.

On Saturday, January 16, we participated in the first “preschool fair” for the Hanover area. This was held at Hanover First Church of God and was a great opportunity for families to gather in one location and collect information on area preschools. Since we participated in this event, we will be postponing our Open House until a later date in the spring when the weather is a little warmer. Stay tuned for that date.

I am excited to announce that we will be offering a NEW Summer Discovery program. This pilot program is going to be offered during four separate weeks this summer. Watch for more information in the March Messenger and on the website.

We are getting ready for our Family-Fun Coupon Book fundraiser. Many of you bought one last year and we raised $1,100 for the preschool. This year, we hope to reach $1,500. The cost of each book is very affordable at $12 and Discovery Place will earn $6 on each booklet sold. We will have these books for sale in the Gathering Place or you can contact me for one. Our Giant A+ total as of the end of December is $600. Thanks to everyone who continues to support us in this effort! The funds we raise always go toward making our preschool a better place.

Our preschool board is looking for a church member to serve a three year term. The board meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the church library. If you think you may be interested and would like to hear more, please contact me.

Please keep Discovery Place in your prayers as we venture through the second half of our preschool year!

In God’s service.
