Parking Lot Construction

First Methodist Church Mansfield will be breaking ground on their new parking lot construction this Sunday, Feb. 9th! We are super excited about the new lot going in on the other side of Pleasant Ridge, as well as all the updates and improvements being made to our existing lot. However, all these updates will require some shifts in parking as they close sections of the lot for improvement. We will do our best to keep you updated with the latest parking lot shifts/changes as we receive information. Thank you for your patience!!

Teddy Bear Picnics - Feb. 12th & 13th

On Wednesday, Feb. 12th and Thursday, Feb. 13th students are welcome to bring a favorite stuffed bear or other stuffed animal from home to take with them on a class picnic!! We will provide blankets and a festive Valentine snack for the classes to enjoy! The picnics will take place during morning snack time (so parents, your child will still need to bring a packed lunch on those days). We will attempt to have the picnics outside if it happens to be nice weather. If not, we will picnic inside.


Parents, even though Valentine's Day is not one of our official class party events, many classes opt to do a valentine exchange which is so much fun for the kiddos! If you have questions about class valentines, please talk with your child's teacher. We will also have some fun photo opportunities for you and your children that week!! There will be an area set up in the lobby by the preschool office with lots of cute and silly Valentine props you can use for some fun photos with your children! So dress in your Valentine’s Day best and get ready to SMILE!

February 17th ~ Presidents' Day Holiday (no school)

The Tooth Fairy is coming to First Faith!

The Tooth Fairy will be coming to visit the threes classes on Monday, Feb. 24th & Tuesday, Feb. 25th! She'll be teaching our kiddos all about the importance of brushing and flossing to maintain a healthy smile. She'll also be handing out some fun goodie bags at the end of her visit, so this is definitely something the kids won't want to miss!

Kinder Field Trip to Young Chefs Academy

The kindergarten class will be visiting Young Chefs Academy in Fort Worth on Thursday, February 27th! At Young Chefs Academy students will participate in an interactive cooking experience which not only "provides a great opportunity to sharpen life-skills and stir-up creativity, but is also a great recipe for soaking up knowledge from the basic cognitive subject areas!" They offer "highly credentialed curriculum support that identifies with teaching benchmarks in areas such as: Math, Science, Health, Reading/Language arts and so much more." Looking forward to this fun culinary experience and seeing what the kinder class cooks up!

Inclement Weather Information

Please remember, our inclement weather policy states that if MISD is closed, we are closed. Also, if MISD has a delayed start, we are CLOSED.

Spring Class Pictures & Graduation Pictures

We will be taking class pictures for threes and under, and graduation pictures for fours and kinder, on March 2nd & 3rd. As long as the weather cooperates, pictures will be taken outside, so please dress your child accordingly (long sleeves are probably best). These will be class pictures only, so there will not be an opportunity for retakes if your child is absent.


Fours and kinder classes will be taking individual and class graduation pictures. The graduation robes are white, so light-colored tops without collars work best to not show through and help the graduation robe lay flat. The boys may prefer to wear long pants as the robe length hits at about the knee. Any large bows or headbands will be removed to accommodate the graduation cap.


After the pictures are taken, you will have a chance to order a class photo through the order form that will go home in your child's folder. Graduation picture proofs will be sent home with an order form as well.

Illness Policy Reminder

Please remember, if your child has symptoms including vomiting, diarrhea, green runny nose, or fever, they should not return to school until they're symptom free for at least 24 hours WITHOUT medication (this includes fever-reducing medications such as Tylenol or Motrin). This helps us stop the spread of illness to others! If your child will be out due to illness, please call the school at 817-473-2785 to notify his/her teachers. Thanks!
