Parent Connection Sept 29/14

New Sign in!

Now, signing in your children will be easier and safer!  We have a new program that allows parents to scan the back of their child’s nametag and to check in their family all at once.

**NEW**Parents must sign in their Preschool and Toddler children at the sign in desk.  They will receive a sticker label for their child and a security label for the parent.  Just show your security label when you come to pick them up and the Preschool/Toddler leader will match the numbers.  This ensures the children are going home with the right person.  Children in Grades 1-6 still need to picked up in their rooms but do not need a security label.

 

Another exciting week has gone by with Trinity Kids and they have been learning lots on Sunday mornings! If you want to continue that learning throughout the week click on the links and you’ll find their memory verses, lessons, even activities to do with them to keep the learning going.
