Hello from Green Pastures Preschool!

Are you wondering what you can do to help the students in your life be successful at school? Reading has been proven to help little ones start off on the right track when they enter school.  It is also great for older students learning vocabulary and context.  Scholastic Reading Club is a great way to add to your library for a very reasonable price.  

When purchasing books, please consider Scholastic Book Club. Our school code is MF7LP. Use this code when ordering online to ensure quick, free delivery to school. I will let you know when they arrive and deliver them to you at church, if needed. 


Code:  MF7LP

Also, if you are interested in sharing any of your special talents with the preschool, please let me know. We love when we can include the congregation and other community members in our curriculum. Let me know if you have any questions or are willing to be an expert for us this year!

Thank you!

Jessica Welchhans, Director
