Dear School Families:
Welcome to Our Redeemer Preschool and Kindergarten!
The teachers and staff at Our Redeemer Preschool and Kindergarten are ready for the 2018-19 school year! We praise Jesus that our new classroom will be open and home to our first pre-kindergarten class. We are calling our new space “Taffy’s Cottage” in honor of Taffy Rein. Vic and Taffy Rein were well-loved members of Our Redeemer Church and had a special fondness for little ones. They left an endowment to be used for new construction which provided the funding for our new classroom. We are grateful to the many folks who worked to get the building in place and ready to use.
Our awesome staff this year includes:
Pre-Kindergarten: Jen Lampkin
4’s Teachers: Sarah Amberg, Nichole Turner and Renae Johnson
3's Teachers: Sarah Amberg and Kathleen Schuyler
Pre-Kindergarten Aide: Karen Winston
Preschool Aides: Anne Symes (3’s & 4’s) Kathleen Schuyler (4’s) and Carrie Monnie (3’s)
Kindergarten Teacher: Darlene Thauland
Director: Darlene Thauland
Sharing the Faith, Love and Joy of Jesus Christ is the exciting cornerstone of education at Our Redeemer. We are eager to share this faith and love with your child each day as we learn about the unconditional love and forgiveness that Jesus has for each of us. We will explore the wonderful world around us, develop friendships and of course, have fun.
Each morning the children enjoy a snack time together. They bring a snack from home except when we are celebrating someone’s birthday. The birthday boy or girl will provide snack for his/her class. Snacks should be manageable in portion for little appetites and in easy-open containers. Because of the prevalence of food allergies Our Redeemer is a nut-free school.
At Our Redeemer we believe that a strong, positive start to a child’s education is essential in developing a life-long love of learning. It is my hope that together we can make this a year full of fun, learning, discovery and growth.
Please feel free to contact me any time. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 503.524.6646
We are honored to serve God, your family and these precious children.
Blessings as We Begin,
Darlene Thauland, School Director
