The Monthly Bethel Buzz – September 2019

Welcome parents to the Bethel Preschool Monthly Newsletter. This newsletter will be sent out every month to inform you of all of the events within the preschool as a whole. For individual classroom information, please check your child’s folders for their teacher’s newsletters and or calendars.


Fundraising is an important part of the preschool to raise money for fun events for the children and specific needs of the preschool. We have several easy ways to help out our program.

Scholastic Book Club.

By ordering books for your child not only are you encouraging learning and reading but you are earning free books for your teachers and their classrooms to be shared by all. Reading is one of the most rewarding gifts to a child. Each month a new Scholastic form will be sent home. Please take a look and begin that love of reading with your family.

Chick-Fil-A Night.

On the third Wednesday of every month, the Preschool will host a fundraiser night at Chick-Fil-A at Westchester Commons from 5:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m. When you place your order just say it is for Spirit Night. The preschool will receive a percentage of the food sales from our night. When you finish eating, come and visit me to take a spin on the wheel to win prizes. Each spin is a dollar. Every dollar made from the wheel goes directly to the preschool!


The preschool will be holding a Wheel – A-Thon to benefit the preschool’s Scholarship Fund. This is an exciting event for the children. On Tuesday, November 12th
, your child will get to bring their decorated bike, scooter, or big wheel and helmet to ride during their outside time in a special designated area in the paved parking lot. The purpose of this event is to help raise money for the Preschool Scholarship Fund which helps families in need of financial aid. More information will be sent home in October so please be on the lookout for it.

Special Events

Please join me in the People of Hope Center on Thursday, September 19th from 9:45 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. for our annual Welcome Back Parent Coffee. I would love to have the opportunity to talk to you one on one and answer any questions you might have about our program, your children, the teachers and to get to know you better.

Field Trip

The Preschool will have its first field trip of the year on October 8th at Lloyd Family Farms in Rockville, VA. We will be going to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins and then have a chance to explore all the fun sights of an actual working farm. Please be on the lookout for more information to follow soon. We can’t wait to see you there.

School Pictures

Let’s not forget the best part of October. Our Preschool Picture Day will be held on Tuesday, October 15th. Dress up your child in their finest to have pictures taken by Jennifer Gavin of Jennifer Gavin Photography. We will be taking individual and class pictures at this time. Jennifer even offers specialty items that would be perfect for the holidays. An order form will be sent home the week before pictures.
Thank you so much for sharing your children with Bethel. It is a privilege and an honor to teach your child and to get them ready for their next milestone in life.
