Aldersgate Preschool

It was a BLAST!

1 Comment

We had our annual Ice Cream Social this past Saturday.  It is a fun day for our families to gather together to play, eat, enjoy some fun entertainment, create, bid – in general just have a great time.  This year we did all that and more!  Here are a few pictures that capture some of the activities.

I was going to rearrange the pictures by activity but seeing them all mixed up gives you a feel for how it was.  All areas were busy and active.  Kids and parents were trying all experiences with equal enthusiasm. 

We owe a HUGE thank you to our Preschool Board members for their work gathering items for our silent auction and preparing the ice cream and bake sale.  Thank you to our families and staff for all the yummy baked goods.  They were so cute AND delicious!  Thank you to the leadership team of boy scout Troop 315 for building the incredibly fun tunnel from boxes and then helping us serve and clean up. Thank you to Shelly Todd and all of our staff for the fun activities.  Thank you to Mad Science for some great entertainment (and learning). 

This event is also our largest fund raising project of the year.  We use fund raising money for all those “extras.”  Our budget mainly covers our day to day expenses so having a cushion to replace carpet, add or replace fun and innovative toys and manipulatives, provide good cameras so we can take quality pictures of “our” kids, etc. is invaluable.  This year we are adding additional security measures on some exterior doors and more camera monitors as part of our upgrades. 

Of course our sponsors and businesses that contribute are so greatly appreciated.  We send a huge THANK YOU to the following families and businesses.  Please consider these businesses first if you are needing any of these types of services or goods.

We appreciate everyone’s support financially.  The money raised is a reality of what needs to happen however, as Terri Hatch, our preschool Board Chairman said, ” The best part about this event was seeing all our kids having such a great time.”
