Kingwood's First Preschool Celebrates Forty Years With Festivities,  Sunday May 5th

In 1973, Holy Comforter Lutheran School opened their doors to the community as Kingwood's first preschool.  What started out with only thirty children in the preschool has now grown to more than one hundred, becoming one of the area's most desirable preschools.  

Kingwood resident, Marilyn Pirner was not only HCLC preschool's first teacher, but she was the one who championed for a preschool in the community.  "I can't say how pleased I am that the school is still going strong, respected so highly in the community, and continues to have a dedicated, loving group of teachers and staff", said Pirner.  

Holy Comforter Lutheran School will be celebrating its fortieth anniversary on Sunday, May 5th, from 11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at their location of 1901 Woodland Hills Drive.  Everyone from the community is welcome to join the festivities including all past and present students, families and teachers.  The celebration will begin at 11 a.m. with a special church service presided by Bishop Mike Reinhart honoring the four-year-old 2013 graduating class.  The entertainment will follow at noon with food, carnival games and prizes, bounce houses, face painting, and a mobile videogame truck for the older kids.  The church's renowned grill team, The Holy Smokers, will provide a fajita lunch coinciding with Cinco de Mayo.  Plus, there will be other delicious food and treats available for everyone.  

"Holy Comforter Preschool has been a vital part of the Kingwood community for 40 years", said Colleen Engel, Holy Comforter Lutheran School Director.  "We have parents as well as staff members who attended HCLC as children themselves and are now committed to having their children attend Holy Comforter because they remember what a wonderful environment this school was and still is to this day", Engel continued.

 

 

Amy Miller, a 1985 HCLC preschool graduate, said that she is "blessed with an amazing memory, one that is filled with vivid and precious memories of my childhood.  When it came time to find a preschool for my children, I was thrilled to learn that, after forty years, Holy Comforter School was still providing an amazing experience in early education.  My children love going to school at Holy Comforter."  

Holy Comforter is asking the community to spread the word about the fortieth anniversary celebration. RSVP to Colleen Engel at (281) 358-9337.
