🌷MAY 2023🌺

As we approach the final days of the 2022-23 school year, I can’t believe how fast the time has passed! It is such a pleasure to be apart of a wonderful school, teaching staff and parents! I am excited for our students who will be moving on to kindergarten in the fall! What a special time for these little ones! May our Lord continue to bless each of you as you begin this next phase of your learning experience. Personally, I am very much looking forward to welcoming our returning students when we begin the 2023-24 school year in September.

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

We are finishing up our fabulous year with a lesson about the Fruits of the Spirit: kindness, love, joy, peace, patience ,and goodness. Every Bible Story has touched on one or more of these fruits and your children will continue to grow in God’s love by demonstrating fruits of the spirit. Teaching your children has been such a blessing. Our bible verse this month is “Always do good” Galatians 6:10. Have a fruitful summer! Love, Ms. Chris

--🎵--MUSICAL MOMENTS--🎵- Ms Deborah

I can’t believe we have arrived to May!! What a wonderful time for these kiddos, celebrating a year complete at Butterfly School. We will be working on our program songs the rest of the year. We will be making sure they know the words and motions for their songs as well as work on what to do on and off the stage. I believe they are all excited to sing for you. Please be singing the final song with them, Sing Wherever I Go. We are going to have a special time together singing and celebrating together for our finale. Thank you everyone for sharing your precious children with me!! It has been a blast!

--✨-Amazing Art 🎨 at Butterfly School! -- -✨------Ms Jennifer-✨-

Ms Robbie, our art substitute, has enjoyed teaching art these last two months. We’re so thankful she stepped in to help us finish out the school year. I hope your little artist enjoyed art class. I loved getting to see their talent and passion for art grow. We had a wonderful time learning about Pablo Picasso and this month we will conclude with a new Artist Claude Monet. Have a great summer!

We had our last class last week finishing up our ABC’s, 123’s, and Colors. I enjoyed watching your children grow and how they learned part of a language they can use when they have no words. We will be practicing for our spring program during our time together the rest of the year.

I hope that your children shared with you the library book we worked on all year. The growth they all showed was evident in their books. Some of them counted down the days until they could bring it home. I hope it blessed you as much as it did me. We will be working on our spring program during our time together the rest of the year.

🧲🧪-Sensational Science-🔍 Ms Tracy

Science this month will be all about having fun and enjoying our last two classes together. We’ll be learning about the science of popcorn, then for our last Friday we’ll be eating popcorn (Not the same popcorn!) while we watch Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. These kids have made science so much fun and I’ve enjoyed getting to know each and every student. I hope they'll always have a love of science. Have a fabulous summer!





RBS Ladybug Garden

This little lady bug garden was started several years ago by a former Pre K teacher, Ms Amy. Each year our Pre K class paints a lady bug and adds it to the garden. It is nice to see all the lady bugs from years past!
