MECE Preschool and Kindergarten
June News

Thank you for finding the time to attend parent/teacher conferences.
Thank you to all of the End of the Year Picnic parents for your help! Everyone had a great time!!
Mother's Day Teas

Thank you to all the mom's that came out for Mother's Day Teas! The children were so excited to share all their special projects and time with you!

Reptile Show

Everyone had a wonderful time learning all about reptiles from Mr. Roger! We even had some very brave children that touched some of them. We hope your child told you all about it!


We are so proud of our Pre-K fours!! They have grown and learned so much this past year. We wish them all the best as they start this chapter in their lives. Come back and visit!!

Leaving Their Mark

It is with great sadness, after 29 years, we found it necessary to close our Kindergarten program. We thank the teachers, who devoted so much of their time, talents and love to make this program so special. We are so proud of children who have gone through our school and all they have accomplished. To mark this event, this year's class "left their mark" by painting their handprints on this beautiful butterfly painting. Thank you to Miss Jillian, MECE graduate 1989 and a past MECE teacher, who donated her time and talent to make this piece possible.

Here is what MECE parents and students say about why MECE is so special!

Let's Go To The Olympics!

Camp is filling up quickly!

We only have a few openings in some groups. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are interested in attending.

Mabel's Labels

DCF (our licensing agency) requires that all items be labeled with a child's first and last name. This means reusable water bottle, lunch box, backpack, towel, etc. This is required for camp and school year. I highly recommend Mabel's Labels for easy labeling of all items. Be sure to indicate you are supporting MECE.

We need more substitutes for the summer and next fall. Background in Early Childhood is a bonus. Heart for young children required. Please let Cathy know if you are interested.

Parents Morning Out (PMO) is open 5 days per week from 9-noon! Get more information and sign up on the church's website.

Please send in old towels, stack-able yogurt cups, and produce trays for art supplies.
