Learning Center This Week


ATTENTION PARENTS:  this week you will be receiving an e-mail asking you to confirm your child’s information as we have on file in our enrollment records.  All you need do is check the info, verify that all information is correct OR correct that which is incorrect, and return your response to Megan Weymouth.  Thank you for your cooperation!


THANK YOU!!!   Becky Peckham, our Nursery Supervisor, is grateful for the many suitable story books that have been donated to our new Nursery library.  Becky is setting up a “quiet” reading corner in the Nursery, and the books we have received are perfectly appropriate and certainly well-appreciated.


NURSERY VACANCY:  We are currently in the process of searching for a Nursery Assistant to work with Becky Peckham, Nursery Supervisor, on Sunday mornings and (during choir season) occasional Wednesday evenings.  Preference will be given to those with direct care experience related to infants/toddlers. A degree or certification in a related discipline will be given further preference. Child/infant First Aid/CPR required.
For application or further information, please see Megan in the Learning Center Office, or Becky in the Nursery.


SUMMER NURSERY:  During the summer months the Nursery will be available for child care for infants through 2nd grade.   Thank you, Becky and Volunteers!  Please take note that Becky will need as much help as she can until the open position is filled.  If you can NOT serve in the Nursery on your assigned date, please do find a substitute.


IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO SIGN UP FOR TEACHING IN THE FALL.  The new volunteer teacher board is out and ready for you to stake your claim.  Please do take a look during fellowship hour and, more importantly, sign up!


COMING UP IN THE FALL:  Old Testament!!!


PUPPET SHOW:  Please mark your calendars now for this year’s Puppet Show which we present every other year (see dates below).  Our last performance was in 2015.  There will be a need for 32 puppeteers and 8 voices to make up the cast for this show.  Stage crew (set and strike) will be needed as well.  Please block (on your calendar) December 3rd (set), and December 6th,7th, 8th (performances) so that you can take part in this special event – our gift to the community.


PUPPET SHOW PROCEEDS:  will go to someone in our community who needs our help, particularly during the Christmas season.  In the past, our show has benefited children and adults with devastating illnesses and/or disabilities, surviving children of tragedy of a parent death, etc.  Please do think about this and consider any possible recipients.   Candidates’ names can be submitted to Megan Weymouth between now and Thanksgiving.
