End-of-the-Year Picnic

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Tybee Memorial Park for our end-of-the-year picnic.  Once again our teachers did a stellar job of bunning those hotdogs; our kids did a great job of exploring and having fun; and our families did a phenomenal job of helping us end our year on the perfect note!

Happy Summer!

Getting Ready for Mother's Day!

We've been practicing our Mother's Day songs and getting ready for our program (Friday, May 12th at 9:30.)  We hope we'll see you there.

Remember to bring a beach towel or blanket for our Muffins with Mom picnic after the program.

We'll also continue collecting food donations for the Islands Y Food Bank (Moms Helping Moms) through Monday, May 15th. 

WIPC Volunteering Opportunity

WIPP Families-
Each year Wilmington Island Presbyterian Church shares the love and encouragement of Jesus Christ with children, ages 3 years to 5th grade, through our annual Vacation Bible School. This year's Hero Central; Discover Your Strenth in God will take place June 12 through June 16 from 9 am to 12 pm.

We are inviting WIPP parents to join us in this fun and exciting ministry by volunteering as co-class leaders. Each new volunteer will be partnered with an experienced VBS Team member to lead their small group of children around campus to each of our centers for music, recreation, crafts and Bible story time. 

No special talents are needed- just the gift of your time and the love for the children!

If you can volunteer for the week, a few days or if you have any questions, please contact Marty Susie at marbull@comcast.net or 912-228-1353.

St. Jude's Bike-A-Thon

This week our 3s and 4s participated in the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® Trike-A-Thon program.  We rode bikes (and had lots of fun) while helping to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  We'll accept contributions to St. Jude through April 3rd.  If you would like to make a contribution to St. Jude, there are several ways you can help out:
  • Use the Sponsor Form Envelope that your child brought home to list the names and donation amounts of any family and friends who would like to contribute.
  •  Contributions are also accepted online. You can visit https://www.stjude.org/get-involved/at-school/trike.html then click FIND YOUR SCHOOL (Wilmington Island Preschool) to set up/register your child’s fundraising page which will allow your child to accept online donations. If you don't want to go through registering--and you don't mind not being eligible for prizes, you can use the FIND A STUDENT search and type in WIPP.  This is a generic school donation page.
In each of the last four years, WIPP has contributed nearly $1000 to St. Jude to help make a difference in the lives of children suffering from cancer and other catastrophic diseases. To learn more about St. Jude, visit stjude.org.

Thanks for all you do!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Thank you to everyone who helped make our parade so much fun!
