Director’s Letters

April 25, 2019

From Kristin Henke, MSP Director:

We’ve got great news! After a comprehensive and prayerful search process, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Holly Davis as the next Director of Mustard Seed Preschool. Holly began working at MSP two years ago and has led a 4’s classroom this year. In addition to a B.A. in Music and an Early Childhood Teaching certificate from Agnes Scott College, she has many years of experience teaching preschoolers and elementary students in a variety of public and private settings.

Holly enthusiastically states “What an honor and privilege it is to be the next Director of Mustard Seed Preschool! I am excited to work alongside Mustard Seed teachers and families to provide a quality education where children learn of God’s love and grace through the truths of scripture. I look forward to getting to know all of our precious seedlings and their families over the next months.”

Holly, her husband Shawn, and their two teenage sons have been members of Christ Community Church since 2016. During that time, Holly has been active in both the Children’s and Worship ministries. Her love for music will continue to shape the way she leads devotions at MSP. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, and she has been active in PTA leadership at several schools.Throughout the selection process, Holly demonstrated a passion for the MSP community, curriculum, and mission.

Holly will begin her new role on May 13, allowing adequate time for a smooth transition.

From Kristin Henke, MSP Director:

It is with a heavy heart but also confidence in the Lord’s plan that I have decided to make this semester, Spring 2019, my last as Director of Mustard Seed Preschool.  It has been a joy and a privilege to lead our school and serve alongside teachers, shepherding children to taste, see and feel the love of Jesus. After taking the summer off, I will likely move onto a position in Social Work or Human Resources.

Christ Community Church’s Ministry Director is spearheading a search team for a new Director, who will in turn hire a Curriculum Coordinator to work in the office alongside Sarah Hathaway, our veteran Assistant Director.

Interested applicants for the Director position can email Becky.Clark@christcommunity.org for more information.

Dear MSP Families,
We are looking forward to seeing you and your students back on our hallways starting this week on Tues/Wed Jan. 8/9.   We will be welcoming some new students in our 3s and 5s classes as well.

Childcare Licensing Safety Rule: For Morning Sign in Sheets,  New policy: You will notice there is now a place for you to print the name of the person who is picking up your child. Parents can write “Mom” or “Dad” but if it is another person, such as a friend or babysitter, please write in that person’s name (or have them write it if they are the ones dropping off.) Then at dismissal, that pick-up person will need to sign their first and last name, rather than just initials.

 After Care will resume on Tues. January 8th on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1:30 – 2:45 pm. If you need another After Care form, please email Sarah.hathaway@christcommunity.org and she can send one to you. Extras will also be on the table outside our office.

Hangers for Car Line Placards have been successful in helping car line move faster. Please be sure to arrive on time (and avoid late minutes!) as the car line will likely end sooner due to the efficiency of using the hangers to hold the placard on the rearview mirrors.

In Devotions, we will be talking about how Adam and Eve were our first parents, and how God promises that in Christ, our souls last forever. We will compare things that wear out and do not last, with things that are forever, like God’s love.

MSP Tour & Preview Days for interested families for 2019-2020 will be held Th/Fr Jan 24/25. If you have been pleased with our program, please share this with your friends! Promotion will also be on our website www.mustardseedpreschool.com and on our Facebook and Instagram pages. (@mustard_seed_preschool) Folks can RSVP to Sarah.Hathaway@christcommunity.org or visit www.mustardseedpreschool.com for more information about Tour & Preview Days.

~We are thankful for each of you as we begin this new year together.
