November 2018


Dear Parents,


Thank you to all who participated in our Pumpkin Picking Field Trip – We were lucky with no rain! Thank you, too, for your participation in our Fall Fundraiser – we made a profit of $700 and will be purchasing activities for the children to play with in the auditorium during the cold winter months.


Reminder: There are no Beginner, Early Skills or Pre K Classes on Thursday and Friday, November 8th and 9th.  Agape’ is open for parents who have previously signed up for child care for these dates.


Child schedule changes

As a reminder, please submit any changes to your schedule by the 30th of every month for the following month for billing purposes.  Thank you.



Please be reminded that all children ages 6 months to 59 months are required to be inoculated for influenza no later than December 31st.  Children who do not have the influenza inoculation without a medical or religious exemption are unable to attend Agape’ – as required by law.  If you have not already scheduled the flu shot for your child, please do so and let us know the date of inoculation.  We are audited by the Township Nurse and are required to be in 100% compliance.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child delivers gifts for children from all around the world!  If you would like to participate the deadline to return the shoe box of gifts is Friday, November 16th – The Almond Branch will be bringing the gifts on Sunday the 18th and dropping them off at another location to be shipped. Pamphlets with additional information will be coming out soon. Thank you!


Thanksgiving Feast for Children Ages 2 ½-4

We hope you will be able to join us for our annual Preschool Thanksgiving Feast! Miss Sandi, Miss Tracy and Miss Debbie’s classes prepare for the feast by making the soup and breads – and they will do a short program of songs.  We have plenty of room in the auditorium – so parents and grandparents are welcome to attend!  The Feast is on Wednesday, 11/21 at 10:00 a.m.  Children who will be staying with us following the feast will be in a combined age group of 2 ½ - 4 in Room B-1.  Please see your child’s teacher to sign up for items to contribute to the feast as well as letting us know the number of people in your family attending the feast. This is always a very special kick off day to the holiday season!


Agape’ is CLOSED on Thanksgiving Day, 11/22 and Friday, 11/23 – ENJOY the Holiday!


Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the December 7th Performing Arts Night!  The program consists of the children in Mr. Chris’s Jamming for Juniors Music Class, King Centre Dance, Teach to Teach Guitar, Piano and Voice and the Preschool Karate Classes!  The program begins at 7:00 – Children need to arrive at 6:30.  Light refreshments will follow.
