Prince of Peace Preschool/Kindergarten                      November 2020

October flew by!

October was a busy month, with lots of fun and learning! We learned about our community and those who work there. We have made many fall projects, including lots of leaves and pumpkins! We had a visit from the PSK Photographer, which brought out lots of smiles! We ended the month with our annual Fall Harvest Parties. These are always memorable events for the children, families and staff, alike!

Come One, Come All!

Our Fall Program was a “Virtual” Program this year, due to health department restrictions on group gatherings. If you missed the link, please me for an access link. Although it was a different program, there were still lots of cute moments to watch!

Say “Cheese”

Our Photographer, Robyn Garner, was

here in October. She has a wonderful

way of bringing out darling smiles in all of the children. You should have received an email of your child’s proofs. If you did not, please let me know! Orders are due Nov. 6.  

 Drive on In:

November is our Food Drive month.

From November 2 – 24, we will be

collecting food for the North County Community Food Bank. Please see your child’s teacher for more details on collection dates and ways to “earn” their food donations.

Walk the Talk:

We held our annual Walk-a-Thon at the end of September here in our Preschool/Kindergarten Playground. The children had a wonderful time! If you haven’t already, please turn in your pledges as soon as possible! Thank you for your participation in this fun event/fundraiser!

Usborne Book Fair!

On November 8 – 10, you may purchase awesome books for your child and/or Christmas gifts at our Usborne Book Fair! These are beautiful books that last a lifetime! Our school will also earn free books, based off of total sales.

Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!

It’s time to begin planning for our annual Preschool/Kindergarten Auction! We hope to hold it on March13. This is a large event that requires lots of parent help! We will hold our next planning meeting on Nov. 4 @ 2:45-3:45pm. Please come and share your ideas and talents for this fun event!

Thanksgiving Feasts are coming!

In celebration of Thanksgiving, each class will have a Thanksgiving Feast. These fun events are held during regular class time. Your child’s teacher will be letting you know what things are needed for your class party. Here are the dates for these parties:

Nov. 20: Toddler Class

Nov. 23: MW3; MWFam/pm

Nov. 24: TTh3; TTh4; K

Policy Reminder:

Each month I will restate a policy or

Illness/Health Screening:

Just One Thing

What is that blue donation box in the social hall?  What is Just One Thing?  What is a Hope Bag?

Just One Thing is a program to end homelessness in Battle Ground.  How do we do that?

We at Prince of Peace are collecting bottles of water (8 or 12 oz) and individual snack items.  These items are put into Hope Bags along with other items and a card with information where someone can go get the help they need.

On this sides of our Just One Thing donation box are blue bags that contain Hope Bags.  Take a bag or two and keep them in your car.  When you see someone standing on the street with a sign asking for help, give them a Hope Bag.  It won’t solve their problems. It will give them a drink of water and a quick snack and information on where to go to get help.  If these are people from out of the area hoping to take advantage of the kindness of the citizens of Battle Ground it is hopeful that they will leave if all they get is a snack and water.  Please do not give money to these people and do not put them in your car and take them somewhere or to your home.

We introduced the Just One Thing donation box on January 19th, on February 13th we delivered 142 individual snacks and 84 bottles of water to Just One Thing and 16 pencils to Battle Ground Schools.  Thank you POP family for your generosity.  

There is a list on the donation box of other items needed for hope bags, you are welcome to bring any of those items.  If you travel and stay in hotels and do not use the guest soaps and shampoos we are happy to have those items too.

Are there other ways to help?  Yes, you can help put Hope Bags together, you can be on a mentor team to reach out to homeless people.  We have contact information if that is an area of interest for you.  You can also follow Just One Thing Battle Ground on Facebook.

You can call Janet Crawford at 509-250-2133 or email her at">

Thank you again POP Family!
