June 2017

Dear Parents,

HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY to all the fabulous Dads in our preschool! We are so thankful for each of you and consider it a privilege to partner with you in helping to “raise your child in the way he/she should go”. Our prayer for you this month is that you will find extra time to spend with your child making sweet memories. Enjoy your kiddos while they are young.

Our themes this month are “Fathers are special and summer fun.” If you would like to come in during this month to share your job, hobby, read a special book, etc., please let us know so we can schedule you in! We and your child would really love this!!

For all (am & pm) TTh dads and students, we will be having a “Daddy & Me” picnic lunch (bring your own) at 12:00 p.m. on June 6th and for all (am & pm) MWF students, we will have the “Daddy & Me” picnic lunch (bring your own) at 12:00 p.m. on June 9th. JK Dads can join us either day! Please meet in the Faith Cafe (on the school side) first and then we will break for our picnic lunch together.

THANK YOU for joining us at Tanaka Farms for our fun field trip (delicious berries and veggies!).

* Please have your child bring his/her “backpack” to preschool everyday. Always keep an extra set of LABELED clothes (underwear, shirt, pants or shorts and socks) in a zip lock bag inside the pail in case of toileting “accidents” or water play spills. Check your child’s pail DAILY for Art projects, notes and forms!

* Please contact the preschool office if you have a change of address, phone, or authorized “pick-up” person or if your child is sick!


* Please remember to send your child in closed-toe shoes and play clothes. No crocs please.

* Please be prompt in picking your child up everyday and REMEMBER TO SIGN YOUR CHILD OUT as this is a state requirement! THANKS!! We will be enforcing our late pick-up policy as outlined in our Parent Handbook! Thanks for being considerate to your child!

* Lighthouse Coastal Community Church meets every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Sunday school and Nursery care are provided during the service. We would love you to join us!

* As part of our master plan agreement with the City of Costa Mesa, it is mandatory that all parents and visitors park in the main church parking lot at all times. The parking lot barriers will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. – our normal business hours. The lot will also be opened for any special activities as needed between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. No activities will take place in the parking lot after 11:00 p.m. or before 7:00 a.m. You are required to walk your child through the side door of the Worship Center and sign him/her in and out on the sheet provided daily. The preschool staff will be there to welcome and dismiss your child to you or an authorized adult. If you arrive early for any session, please keep your child with you in the car until it is time to sign him/her in. Should you arrive late for drop off or plan to pick your child up early from the classroom, please park in the main church parking lot and walk him/her across the street at the designated crosswalk on the corner of Magnolia St. and Santa Ana Ave. only. Please help us in honoring Lil’ Lighthouse Preschool’s agreement with the City of Costa Mesa in following these procedures.

In case of a blackout or emergency disaster, or if you cannot reach us on the landline, we will have a cell phone turned on for you to contact us. Please note the number and keep it in a convenient place. Please do not leave voicemails on this line.
