Children of Faith Newsletter


Fall is here...

We would like to send out a special thank you to Hemby Bridge FD for spending time with us and teaching us about fire safety. Please take the time to develop an emergency escape plan and practice drills ion the event of an emergency. This is also a great time to check the batteries in your smoke detectors and check the status of your fire extinguishers.


As always, if there is ever anything that I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Thank you in advance, for what I anticipate to be an exciting school year!

11th- Veteran's Day

14th- MUSIC

19th- Chapel 

27th through 29th- Closed for Thanksgiving Break


Tuesday, November 26, 2019, the classrooms on the entry hall of the preschool (Ms. Cat/ Mrs. Holly and Ms. Skylar/ Mrs. Elizabeth's classes) will be closed in preparation for the installation of new floors over Thanksgiving break. The second phase will be completed over Christmas break.  


Our parking lot will be repaved the week of November 25- 29, 2019, also the week of Thanksgiving. The parking lot will be roped off and cones will be displayed directing you to the parking area in the grassy area/ field. We are hopeful that the work will be completed during that week however there is a chance that it could run into the following week if the weather doesn't cooperate.

The floors and parking lot are welcomed improvements and we ask for your patience and understanding during this chaotic time. Please let is know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance!

ATTRACTIONS FUNDRAISER: Thank you for your participation. Because of you, we were able to raise approximately $1,000. 00 for the preschool!

Carpool Reminder:
Rules exist to help us keep everyone as safe as possible. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE U-TURNS or TURN AROUND IN THE CARPOOL LINE! If time is of the essence, please come inside to pick up your son or daughter.

Nut Free Zone:

COF Preschool is a nut free zone. This includes all nuts, nut spreads, and butters!

Arrival/ Departure:

Hours of operation are 9am-1pm (doors will open at 8:55am). Pick-up is no later than 1pm.

*Late fees will be applicable


A Few Reminders:

  • Tuition is due by the 5th of each month.  Checks are made payable to FUMC.

  • A TEXT alert system for getting emergency information to you has been set up. To be a part of the text alert system, you need to:  Text PRESCHOOL to 43506.  This will automatically add you to my Preschool List.  You can add as many cell numbers as needed (mom, dad, grandmother, babysitter, etc) for those people that would need to know if we are delayed or have to close for an emergency.  I will still continue to post weather delays and closings on our website, Facebook page and WSOC TV’s website

  • Please do not park on the street side of the church in the afternoons, as we have a car rider line for two of our Fours classes.  Street congestion is heavy on the street with cars pulling in and out of the parking lot.

  • Drop Off is at 8:55am and Pick-Up is at 1:00pm. Late pick-up is subject to a fee.  Please see the Parent Handbook for the late fee schedule.

  • Please remember to keep a change of clothes for your child in their backpack.

  • Please write your child’s name on their items (sippy cups, lunch bags, etc).   

  • The best shoes for your child is closed-toe shoes.  We go on the playground every day, and mulch can cause splinters on bare feet.  Also, flip flops are hard to run in…and we want the children to be able to run around on the playground!

  • You can link our school to Harris Teeter VIC cards!  Our number is 8652.  You can either go online at or sign up at your Harris Teeter store.


Thank you so much for sharing your children with us.  It is a blessing and a privilege to have your children with us this year.   Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


God's Blessings,

Sonya Russ
