Be a Preschool Super Hero
Our preschool is transitioning to a new
director. Ms. Nancy is retiring to pursue her call as a hospital
chaplain after 21 years at Emmanuel Preschool. The preschool has
been hit hard the last 3 years competing with the new state funded free
transitional kindergartens, She has been working hard to grow the school
again by adding social media, neighborhood marketing, extended hours
and much more.
We have started to see the results nearly doubling our numbers at the beginning of this school year.
We are ready to bring on a new director (Ms. Lisa) but Nancy has
taken a reduced salary in recent years so we must up our budget
significantly. We need support for a little while until the school
gets completely up to speed with the new salary. While the vestry
(church board) has agreed to help to partially support the school this
year, they can't help until Fr Rob retires. We are asking
help fill the gap. We need $5000 . The
preschool brings the community to our campus and is a source of life
and inspiration. We are calling all preschool "Super Heroes" to
help fund this outreach and this wonderful service to our community
which began nearly 45 years ago! Thank-you for your support.
You can contribute by writing a check to the church with "preschool" in the memo or by going to this Go Fund Me link
