Bright Beginnings Buzz

April 2018

Hello everyone!


It's Spring, hopefully it will start to feel like it!! :) We are so excited to be back after Easter break and pray all of you had fun, family time.


We had a fun- filled March and enjoyed our special visitors we had throughout the month. It's fun to meet those who are hard at work in our community!


Here at Bright Beginnings we are very excited about all that we have planned for this month! Read on for more...


APRIL


Our theme of the month is Spring

Our Fruit of the Spirit is: Patience

Our Bible verse is: "The earth is the Lord's" (Psalm 24:1)


Our activities this month will revolve around taking care of our earth and learning patience as we watch seeds sprout and caterpillars turn to butterflies . We will enjoy dirt, the rain and the many ways our earth comes to life after the winter . The weather is looking better as well and we are really excited to get back outside to play! :)

Missions

Special April Mission - Bright Beginnings families have raised $70 so far!

We are so excited to have the 2018 March of Dimes Ambassador Family among us! The Dreyer family has had 2 preemies who have survived and they are using the experience and blessings they have encountered to help others.

We will be collecting dimes during the month of March (in the mail hallway) to help support their team! Start collecting those dimes, every little bit helps.

Premature birth affects about 380,000 babies each year in the United States . Together we can help the March of Dimes fight prematurity so more moms and babies can get the strongest start possible. Please help support the Dreyer team at www.marchforbabies.org/dreyer_auggie or join the team and march on April 29, at 9:00 a.m. at Paul Brown Stadium. Let me know if you have additional questions.

ILLNESS REMINDER

How cute is this reminder of when to send and when to stay home and snuggle? I thought I would send it out since we still have been having cases of strep and the flu. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy for spring! :)
