EVENTS YET TO BE DETERMINED:


Used Book Sale

Do you have GREAT books at home that you or your children have outgrown? Each year Little Lambs holds a Used Book Sale. We will let you know a couple of months ahead of time when we begin accepting donations of gently used children or adult books for our sale.

The sale typically runs for two weeks in the spring. (dependent on inventory)

You will be able to come to the sale anytime the building is open. Books are available for a freewill donation. ALL donations go directly to Little Lambs Preschool.

This is a GREAT way to purge your own library and add some fun new books for a very reasonable amount!


Silent Auction

Little Lambs Preschool Silent Auction was held: May 15—26, 2022.

This is always a fun event— and this year we had over 125 items to bid on!

Thanks to generous support of donors, Little Lambs families and church members we were able to raise over $6000

The Silent Auction is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year! Funds from this cover ongoing classroom supplies for art, math, science and special events. Funds raised help ensure that all of our field trips and special speakers/programs are available at no additional cost for students. In the recent past we have used funds to upgrade and refurbish classrooms. Our current plan is to upgrade both our indoor and outdoor large motor activities. We have also applied, and received a grant from the DeKalb Community Foundation to that end.

Thank you for your support!


Playground Expansion!

Little Lambs Preschool Works to Improve Outdoor Play Area

Due to wear and tear of our current playground equipment director Katie Martinez, in partnership with the Board of Christian Ed and the Board of Trustees, has been working hard to upgrade and enhance our play area. The total estimated cost for the playground project was $27,498. This cost would be to install not only new equipment but would also include expanding the playground to the grass area within the current playground. (20’x30’ addition)

We have also looked into replacing the pea gravel with a tile or poured landing material. At this time, it is way too expensive, but is something we should consider for a later project so we can create a more inclusive playground setting for children with differing abilities to enjoy. (approximate cost additional cost is not included in this request is $50,000)

Exciting news regarding funding for playground improvement/expansion:

Organization Grant Awarded
Community Needs Grant for Dekalb County $ 7,500
Meijer Grocery Stores $ 500
Christmas Greeting Fund $ 2,535
Used Book Sale-Little Lambs Fundraiser $ 515
Dine to Donate Night-Texas Roadhouse $ 300
Anonymous Donation $ 3,000
100 Women who care $ 3,000
Immanuel 2022-23 Fiscal Budget $ 5,000
Undesignated Memorials $ 5,148
Total money raised for the playground project thus far: $27,498

Example of anticipated playground items include:
20’x30’enlargement of play area, clubhouse, pebble bridge, quad teether, bongo drums, glockenspiel and chalkboards as well as some additional indoor play equipment.

The Silent Auction and Plant Sale funds will go towards our operating expenses such as classroom supplies, field trips, special activities, and room enhancements. It has been an amazingly blessed year! Thank you to all for your support!!!
