Upcoming Events with MBPC

1st ltMBPC Church & School-wide Mission Project! 

Beginning now through December 12th, we will be collecting Christmas gifts for children, ages infant through high school, for the families at the downtown Presbyterian mission/shelter First Light.

Women in the shelter will have the opportunity to select 1-3 gifts for their children. We hope you will join us in this worthy cause! Donations can be dropped off in the preschool office.

MBPC Listening Groups

Friday December 5, 9:30- Preschool Parents

Please mark your calendars for the 1st Friday in December, and give a few moments of your time after carpool to invest in the future of MBPC. As a ministry of the church, your preschool is integrally linked to the church and we want to hear your voice! Stephen Ingram is lending his church consulting career to MBPC, and we all invite you to share your thoughts about the past, present and future of this place to help both the church and school grow and flourish!

TOT Basketball @ MBPCP

TOT Reg Flyer (1)-page-001Today our 3 year olds had a special treat! The TOT Basketball program came and offered a sample class, incorporating academics, coordination, motor skills, self-esteem and self-discipline with basic basketball skills. The kids LOVED it.

MBPCP will be offering this optional program to our 3s, beginning next Friday. Classes will be 35 minutes on Friday mornings at 9:50, and will be an added boost to our curriculum. We feel this is a good option for our little friends and hope you will take advantage of this fun program!

We are sending home registration forms and more information with your child today. Look it over and feel free to contact Mary Liz or the TOT director Stacey McRae (stacey@teamsoftomorrow.com) with any questions!

Children who participate in TOTs will not miss out on the classroom activities, but will enjoy this extra program once a week in addition to the classroom.  All payments go through the TOT program, but can be turned in to the preschool office.

November Food Drive @ MBPCP

Thanksgiving is a special time when we are able to reflect upon all of the wonderful blessings in our lives…our families, our homes, our daily bread.  It is also a time to remember those who do not have their needs met, those who are hungry, without shelter, alone. This month we are collecting canned goods and nonperishable items for Eastern Area Christian Ministries. This is a great opportunity to teach your child and encourage yourself to reach out to others with a giving heart! You may drop off your items during carpool, or any time at the preschool office. Thank you!
