And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.
2019-2020 School Year
It is the goal of Precious Stones staff to help your child grow to his/her highest potential in all areas of development; academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Special events such as Harvest Celebration, Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas Program, Togetherness Tea, etc. are such a memorable part of the school year. In order to fund these events, summer activities and playground improvements, Precious Stones conducts several fund raisers throughout the year.
Our first Fund-Raiser is on Friday, August 9th, from 4:00-6:00 PM. We are hosting a Back to School BBQ cook-off. Families are encouraged to bring a dish from the following categories for tasting/judging and enjoyment (BBQ, Corn Bread or Slaw.) We are also welcoming donations of raffle items. There will be a bounce house, face painting, water-play and more!
Amazon Smile is an ongoing Fund-Raiser. If you shop through Amazon, this is an easy way to make donations. Every time that you buy, they give Rock of Ages/Precious Stones a percentage. Go to smile.amazon.com and choose to support Rock of Ages Lutheran Church then do your Amazon shopping through Amazon Smile.
$2800 was raised at the annual Classic Cars for Kids last November!
This show is an annual event on the 1st Saturday of November. This years show will be held on Sat. Nov. 2nd, 2019.
**Electronic E-mails & Parent Communications: Electronic newsletters and emails will be sent out with school information and events, reminders, pictures of your children, etc. Watch for them.
Information will also be in your child’s cubby, on the whiteboard in the entry-way, and on our Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/pspreschool.
A hard-copy of the monthly newsletters can be obtained in the office, along with class calendars.
**Business Directory: We will produce a Business Directory for Precious Stones and Rock of Ages members. This will be a source for honest, dependable services and allow support for other parents/members.
If you have a talent, skill or business, please bring your card or an information sheet to the office to be added to the Directory.
