  • Each child will have a daily sheet filled out for the parent to see what kind of day he/she had.
  • When picking up your children, pick the baby up last. Please do not allow older siblings to go into the baby room.
  • Please do not bring extra personal items from home. Space is limited and shared with the Sunday school. If items are needed, the teacher will let you know.
