Come join Ms. Leslie for a COVID safe dance class. Classes are offered weekly on Thursdays at 12 pm and begin on January 14, 2021.

Hello friends. When you do your shopping this weekend, please consider adding a few items to help feed your neighbors. Thank you!

10/06/2021

This month is all about supporting our neighbors at Fort Johnson Baptist Church, whose sanctuary was severely damaged in a fire.

We will donate $3 for every 6ct Chocolate Chunk Cookie that is purchased in October.

We look forward to seeing you soon as you help in this effort ❤

Color sorting and tong play!
“Activities using tongs are great for helping kids develop the strength and coordination they need in the small muscles of the hands – the muscles responsible for cutting with scissors, grasping a pencil, and writing.” - theinspiredtreehouse.com

FJCS is ready to welcome you back!

Hi FJCS Families & Friends - this is coming to you because we have had so many reach out to ask how they can help. We were in a long period of “sit and wait” as we assessed the damage and accessed the resources we had available. We love you and appreciate all of your thoughtful support!
In addition to the devastating loss of our sanctuary, we lost half of our school, our offices and our storage space due to smoke and water damage. This has been a hard week but what makes us smile and know that we can get through this is God's love and how He shows us in different ways that He is in control.
Ashley River Baptist Church has been a tremendous blessing to us by loaning preschool grade furniture until we are able to purchase permanent replacements.

If you wish to give a monetary donation to help the preschool out with the in-between expenses of rebuilding our crafting supplies, restocking our cleaning supplies, and purchasing materials to recreate classrooms there are several ways to do so:
1. You can visit www.fjbc.net and click on the ONLINE GIVING tab in the right hand corner. You can type "preschool" in the memo line or leave it blank to go into the general fund.
2. You can send Chesley or Lindsey an email to make additions to your tuition bill.
3. You can write a check to our preschool.

We have also created this SignUp Genius Link that we will update on occasion. We have to limit the amount of material donation we take in because of lack of storage space. (You may have to copy & paste the link)

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0F4BAFAE2CA2FF2-fjcs3

We are so excited to welcome 3s and 4s back on Monday, September 20th and Infants, Toddlers and Twos back on Monday, Sept 27th. We are proud of our hard-working team to be able to re-open so quickly after last week's event. It has been a long, productive and emotional week!

As you prepare your child to return to preschool, they may have questions about the fire. We suggest that you don't show pictures of the actual fire (traumatic - even to adults!) but we have put together this video focusing on what has changed and what is staying the same.

https://youtu.be/rxSO8Hw_GBY

We also have this resource link on how to talk with your children after an emergency or disaster.
https://www.cdc.gov/childrenindisasters/school-return-after.html

We cannot put into words what your support has meant to us and how it has kept us all going. We can feel the love.

Finding solace in this: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Much love, Lindsey, Chesley, and all of the FJCS Staff

FJCS is ready to welcome you back!

We have received such a blessing. Ashley River Baptist is loaning all this beautiful preschool grade furniture to recreate classrooms until we can do something more permanent!

As some of you have seen on the news this morning or have heard from family and friends, we have had a devastating fire in our Sanctuary. We are so grateful that everyone made it out of the buildings safely and the preschool was not yet open. At this time we must remember that all things work in God’s glory.

“Along with improving upon the cognitive abilities of preschoolers, the right pouring techniques are also helpful in developing their fine motor skills. By pouring small quantities of orange juice, chocolate syrup, or for that matter any other object of choice, kids start showing better eye-hand coordination, understanding how much goes where, and more” - www.parenting.firstcry.com
