SEPTEMBER 2021

It is once again great to be back at Butterfly School and see all our wonderful students and families! Last year, we survived a complex time of new protocols and procedures that kept us open, safe, and running. Our student numbers were lean but slowly continued to grow throughout the year. Personally I was disappointed that during this difficult time we lost several of our long time teachers to the public school system, they will be missed and we wish them success in their new rolls. This year we are starting our year in a strong way welcoming our returning families and many new families as well! Welcome!


We also want to take a moment to recognize our new teachers. Several of our new staff members have come to us from the former CCDC preschool in Coppell. This longstanding school closed its doors in May after serving and blessing our community since 1999. What a gift to have so many of these AMAZING educators joining our wonderful teaching staff! Together we will do amazing things! God is good!

CHAPEL CHAT Ms Chris

So excited for a new school year at the Butterfly School. The Bible has so much to teach us and stories that will amaze us. Each month I will post our Bible Verse and the weekly stories that will reinforce our verse on the Chapel door. So much learning fun awaits! We will start this year with "God helps us grow and learn about him" Samuel 3:19 and our first Bible Story will be an introduction to holding a bible, what it looks like, feels like and what’s inside! We will learn new Bible songs and see what stories and adventures await us this year in Chapel!

MUSICAL MOMENTS Ms Deborah

Hello Butterfly School Family!! I’m so excited to get the school year started and to share music with your children. This year I will be using more repetition with songs and will share my song list with teachers for each month if you would like to know what your children are singing. The toddlers and twos will be focusing on nursery rhymes the first half of the year incorporating rhythm, beat, and movement. The threes will have theme based music using rhythm, beat, dynamics, tempo, and actions. Each class will end with a classical music piece in which the children can express themselves through movement with scarves and the like. The fours classes are going to go on an alphabet journey through music. In September we will go through A is for Anthem, B is for Brass, C is for Conductor and Composer, D is for dynamics, and E is for Early Music. May this year be full of fun and learning. May God bless you and your families!!

Have a blessed day!

Thank you,

Deborah George
