Good Shepherd Lutheran Preschool is happy to invite prospective families to stop by this summer for a tour! School may be out for summer, but we have set up a sample classroom for your family to visit. We encourage you to bring your child along to check it out!
If you would like to stop by, view our sample classroom, and learn about our program, we ask that you please use our Schedule a Visit form to set up a time in advance. Office hours are by appointment only during the summer.
We look forward to meeting you!
As another school year draws to a close, we would like to thank you, the Good Shepherd Lutheran Preschool families, for sharing your most precious gifts with us - your amazing children. We have so enjoyed spending this year with you!
For those of you moving on to kindergarten, know that we wish you all the best on your exciting new adventure. We will miss you, but we know you are so ready to join the rest of the big kids. Come visit us whenever you have the chance!
We hope that everyone has a fantastically fun summer, and we look forward to seeing many of you again in September!
“Go now in peace… Go now in peace… May the love of God surround you everywhere, everywhere you may go!”
It’s the last week to register for Vacation Bible School! All GSLP families must turn in their registration forms by Friday, May 31, to receive priority enrollment. There are only a handful of spots left! Forms are available on the bulletin board outside Ms. Fischer’s office.
GSLP students are grouped with their classmates for this fantastically fun week of crafts, music, play, and Bible stories. Elementary school-aged siblings may also register. We hope to see you there this summer!
Families of students enrolled for this fall will receive a letter in July describing the opening days of school. If you do not receive this letter by August 1, please contact the preschool office. If your address changes during the summer, please email the preschool with your updated contact information so that we can send the letter to the correct address.
Your summer letter will include an invitation to attend a gathering with your child’s teachers and classmates at the GSLP playground. These gatherings are an opportunity for parents and children to meet one another and begin building relationships that will continue throughout the year. Gatherings will happen the week of September 2.
The next big event to kick off the school year will be classroom visits on September 11. Parents and students visit classrooms together to introduce the kids to where they will spend the year. Your child’s first school day will be a mini-day, an hour-long session during which parents will stick around for GSLP’s yearly parent orientation. Next, Early Pre-K students will have shortened sessions to gradually start the year, while Pre-K students will start full sessions.
A preliminary yearly calendar and a detailed September 2019 calendar are available on the GSLP website’s School Calendar page.
A second tuition payment is due August 1. If you will be away during that time, please send in the tuition ahead of time. If tuition is not received by August 1, the office staff will assume that you wish to withdraw your child from school. The preschool office will be open on August 1 from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM for parents who wish to drop-off their tuition and paper forms.
Throughout the school year, staff members take pictures of class activities, special events, birthday or growing day celebrations, chapels, and more. At the end of the year, all of these special moments are used to create a slideshow of the year for our closing program. However, the photos you see on the last day are only a small selection of the moments captured by teachers.
GSLP is offering discs with photos from your child’s class and the closing program slideshow. The cost is $10 for orders received by Tuesday, May 21, and $15 for discs purchased later. Proceeds from the sales benefit the GSLP Scholarship Fund. Discs ordered in advance will be ready to take home the last week of school.
Need an order form? Pick one up outside the Preschool Office or print your own.
