And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.
2017-2018 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.
Extra-curricular events such as Harvest-Fest, Thanksgiving feasts, Christmas parties, Winter-fest, etc. are such a memorable part of the school year. In order to fund these events, Precious Stones conducts several simple fund raisers throughout the year.
Our first Fund-Raiser is in September. We are able to keep 50% of sales through Midland Catalogs. Share catalogs with friends, family, co-workers, etc.
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.
$4100 was raised at the annual Classic Cars for Kids on November 4th.
This show is an annual event on the 1st Saturday of November. This years show; November 3rd, 2018
Raise the Roof!!! Praise God!!! We received an anonymous donation for $10,000 to repair the roof. This, included with the money raised through other events, gave enough to get it done. The Roof Repair was finished Friday, February 23.
Get the word out! For every referred registration, you will receive a free day.
**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.
