🙏JANUARY 2023🙏

Happy New Year everyone! Ready or not, 2023 is here and with it, a time for a refreshing restart for all. May this new year bring many exciting opportunities your way to explore every joy of life for which God has blessed us.

First Day of School- WEDNESDAY, January 4

Coats, Jackets, Sweaters, Hats and Gloves

As our weather changes, please be sure your child's name is on all their personal belongings such as coats, scarfs and gloves.

Pre-enrollment Time for Fall 2023

We will soon begin pre-enrollment for the upcoming 2023-24 school year.

Pre-enrollment is an important benefit that is reserved for our church families and all of our current Butterfly School students as well as their siblings. Information will be sent home with your child on Wednesday, January 18. Information must be returned back to school no later than Thursday, January 26.

This is your opportunity to guarantee a spot for your child for the upcoming school year. We anticipate full enrollment across most of our classes. Should you choose not to participate in the pre-enrollment, your child will not have a reserved class assignment in the fall. Don’t risk your child being placed on a wait list, leverage your earned pre-enrollment opportunity!!

Open enrollment for the general Coppell community and surrounding areas, begins Tuesday, January 31st. Any open class spaces not taken by our current families by January 31st will then be made available to the general community on a first come first served basis.

Continuing our Attitude of Gratitude

Be on the lookout for the green Santa Letters Mailbox. It will be in the hallway as you enter the building. Your child can place their thank you notes to Santa in the mailbox. On January 20 I will collect all the letters in the green mailbox and mail them off to Santa!

Our Christmas Program -

I think you will all agree this year's Christmas program, Oh,What a Special Night, performed by our threes and PreK, was outstanding.

A special thank you Ms Chris for your vision and Ms Deborah for your assistance.

Our End of Year spring program will be Thursday, May 18 and will include our Toddlers and 2s along with the 3s & PreK classes.

---✝-----CHAPEL CHAT------✝--- Ms Chris

We begin a brand new year remembering God’s love for us by sending baby Jesus at Christmas. We will see how God still loves us, even when we don’t obey. We will hear Bible stories that focus on obeying. Noah obeyed God by building a BIG boat, called an ark, and we will see what happened to Jonah when he didn’t obey! We will learn about a promise God made when we see a rainbow in the sky after it rains.

Our January Bible verse is Ephesians 6:1 “Children obey your parents.”

Looking forward to another wonderful year learning about God’s love through songs and stories. I am so glad to see all the sweet smiles I missed over the holidays. Happy New Year!

In December our little artist competed a candy cane that represented Pop Artist Roy Lichenstein. We will start the new year learning about new artists. Can’t wait to see their smiling faces. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

I hope you all had a merry Christmas and happy New Year! I'm looking forward to experiencing many more exciting things in this new year with your precious children. This month in science we’ll be testing the absorption rate of several different materials, static electricity with balloons and learning about magnificent magnets. Fun on Fridays!
