March 2013 Joyful News

Once again, Joyful Noise Preschool will be collecting nonperishable food and personal hygiene items (preferably no glass) to donate to the CEAP program to help out needy families who are less fortunate than us.  Before these items are taken to CEAP, the students will use these items to set up a grocery store in the dramatic play area.  Our goal is to beat our past record total of 177 lbs.  This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to participate in a community project.

Please sign up on March 4th & 5th for the March 14th & 15th conferences.  These conferences will be a 10-minute verbal conference with no report card sent home. Out of consideration for all families, if you feel you need more than 10-minutes please contact your teachers.

Friday, March 8th we do not have school due to conference preparation for teachers.

March 14th & 15th are Family/Teacher conferences. Classes will not be held on these dates.

Spring break will be March 25th through March 29th.  There will not be school during this time.  We hope all of you have a fantastic time spending it with your children!

We would also like to thank those who participated in the Usborne Book Fair.  A total of $1,335.89 were sold, which tabulates into $657.95 of books, Joyful Noise received for their school library.  A special thanks goes out to the Boisclair, Borreson, Chindavong, Engelkes, Eveland, Johnson, O’Dwyer, Paar, Thai, Vogel and Warner families for purchasing books from the teacher’s wish list.  The O’Dwyer family won the book “A Hockey Story” in the Book Drawing. For future book orders, representantive Alissa Muscatello of Usborne Books has set up a continuous on-line e-book fair starting now through next year’s book fair in 2014.  Anyone wanting to buy during the year may do so.  In addition, Joyful Noise will receive credit to put towards purchasing additional books for the school library when these orders are placed.  Go to and select Joyful Noise Maple Grove as the event and place your order at your convenience.

We would like to thank Dr. Krista Bauer Abrahamson, for her generosity.  Our students all went home with a new toothbrush during dental week.

Another reminder, on April 24th & 25th we will be having our Memories with Mom. If possible, moms or any other female figure in your child’s life should attend school this day to join us.  Once again, we are fortunate enough to have Lynde Greenhouse and Nursery of Maple Grove come out to help us get started on our 2013 spring planting and make our day more memorable.  More information will be provided in the April Joyful News.

Our Savior has risen!
