Chandler Baptist Preschool/PDO

September 19

Bible Story

We were honored to have a special guest, Ms. Becky Everly, who taught a special music class Thursday. Becky Everly is a retired nurse and teacher who now is a professional story teller and educator.

Ms. Becky and her friend, Harry (ask your kids who he is), told the story of the boy who shared his 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish with Jesus, so he could feed the five thousand. Ask your child about sharing and what manners Harry taught them!

Cookbook Recipes needed

Our fundraiser this year is a Chandler Preschool and PDO cookbook! Funds received are used to pay for our art ,music, and special programs throughout the year.

We need your favorite recipes (the ones everyone asks for) :0) Two or Three per family would be wonderful! Ask a grandparent or aunt/uncle to contribute as well!

Feel free to use your child's name in the recipe or in the notes, such as Nana Smith's Famous Chicken or Clara's Favorite Apple Pie.
