Preschool News: January 2020

Posted by Lee Ann Roeder on Jan 23, 2020

January is registration month for the 2020-2021 school year, and boy have I been busy! Many of our classes were full with a wait list after the first day! I also have been doing a lot of tours for potential new students. A lot of people start with, "I have heard so many wonderful things about Pilgrim Lutheran Preschool from so many people..." That really makes us feel good! I anticipate that we will continue to fill openings very quickly and will have wait lists for all or most classes very soon. If you know of someone interested in the most fabulous preschool around, please invite them to turn in a registration form...to either fill an opening or to get on a waiting list. They can email us at  or call (317) 846-6132. They can even print a registration form from the website, pilgrimindy.org/preschool.


We have been blessed with many wonderful visitors to our school this January. Sarah Williams did a presentation for the 4s classes on Pilgrim's beautiful pipe organ. The children were fascinated and the teachers all agreed that it was a wonderful experience! The 4s class also enjoyed a visit from a yoga instructor and we had Miss Liz the Science Wiz do a presentation on healthy habits during our healthy habit unit. We have Mr. Mark Booth (aka the "Owl Man") from Take Flight! Wildlife Education present a very fun and informative program to the 3s, 4s, and 5s classes. He has been visiting our preschool for years, and we always look forward to his visit in January! He brings several interesting animals, and we all learn a lot! We always enjoy our visit from Gloria Worth for Christian Storytelling, too!

During January, most classes focused on snow and winter-related activities. We all (yes, the teachers, too!) got to wear our pajamas and slippers to school for Pajama Day. On that day, a children's librarian from the Carmel Public Library comes to school to read "bedtime" stories to us. We eat popcorn and watch a movie, and in general have a very warm and cozy day! 

Thanks again to all of you who support our ministry to our young children and their families in our preschool and our community. Please continue to keep us all in your prayers.

In His service,
