May 2023 Bright Beginnings Bulletin

It’s hard to believe our school year is coming to an end.  The children have learned a great deal.  The teachers of Bright Beginnings feel very honored and blessed to have witnessed this growth first hand and want to thank you for sharing your child(ren) with us.

We would like to thank our Bright Beginnings Christian Preschool families who donated food and other items to our CEAP campaign.  We are excited to say our donations for 2023 came to a total of 210 lbs.  WAY TO GO BBCP FAMILIES!!!

The week of May 1st, we will be having our school Art Show.  Throughout this school year, the teachers have been collecting the students’ artwork to have framed and be placed on display for our show.  On Tuesday and Wednesday, the artwork will be on display in the atrium during school hours for your viewing.  You will be astonished at how their masterpieces look even more amazing after they have been framed.  On Thursday and Friday you will be able  to take your child’s art home.  A suggested donation of $5.00 or whatever amount you feel comfortable with, will be applied to the Bright Beginnings Christian Preschool Scholarship Fund. Bright Beginnings would like to thank those who donated frames!  If you have any questions about our Art Show, please ask your teachers.  

During Famous Bears week, please have your child bring their Teddy Bear to school or some other Stuffed Lovie on 5/15 & 5/16.

Field trip/picnic to Como Zoo.  This field trip will last longer than the usual morning class time. We will be returning to school at 1:00 pm. T-TH students attend preschool on Wednesday, 5/17 instead of Thursday 5/18. There will be no school on 5/18.  A portion of this field trip is paid for through our Gertens Holiday Poinsettias & Greens Fundraiser. 

On May 23rd & 24th we will be having a Bubble Party at preschool for our Field Day.  

The Graduation Program will be on May 25th & 26th in the Sanctuary.  Parents and others wishing to attend the ceremony, should arrive shortly before 11:00am.  This is a Kodak moment and our last day of school!  Students in the afternoon class who are not staying after the graduation ceremony, please let your teachers know.

If your child is currently enrolled in our program, you will not have to fill out new enrollment forms for the next 2023-24 school year, but you will need to update any information such as immunizations, etcetera at our Open House.  If a new sibling is enrolled for next year, you will need to fill out forms for this child.  These forms can be downloaded and printed off from our website at and then turned into the teachers before the end of May, instead of waiting until Open House or the first day of school if you would like.  A confirmation and reminder letter will go out towards the end of July to remind families if any required paperwork is not in your student’s file at that point.  

Your child’s Progress Reports and their portfolio will be available the day of Graduation in the Atrium.  

We have attached a Parent Evaluation Form.  Please complete this form and return it to your teachers at your earliest convenience.  This information is extremely helpful for us to develop a better program. 

Have a safe & blessed summer! 

Your teachers;  Carol Green, Carrie Magner, Laura Petrie, Megan Hoitink & Sue Johnson
