March News

Happy March! It's exciting to think that spring is almost here! :) We had a fun- filled February and enjoyed our Someone Special days as it is always fun sharing our preschool fun with those we love.


We are very excited about all that we have planned for this month! Read on for more...


Our theme of the month is Community

Our Fruit of the Spirit is: Faithfulness

Our Bible verse is: "Love your neighbor as you love yourself" (Mark 12:31)


Our activities this month will revolve around learning who our neighbor is and what it means to live in a community. We will have many visitors this month who will share what they do to keep our community strong. We look forward to trying our hands at being doctors, firefighters, policemen/ women and more as we work through our many fun activities. The weather is looking better as well and we are really excited to get back outside to play! :)

Registration

Many thanks for another wonderful registration season! :) Please let me know if you have any questions regarding your child's placement for the fall and class availability.

Parking

Reminder...please park in the parking lot during drop off...I know if can be easier to park out front or on the side of the building, but to be fair to all and as a safety measure, please refrain from doing so. Also, please park in the side lot if you are walking in to pick up your child so we can avoid people walking in and out of the pick up line. Thanks!

Missions

"Drop Your Drawers!"

The Captain Underpants Undie Drive! Tra-la-la-la


Did you know that Underwear is the most under-donated, and most needed item of clothing? No one should be deprived of the simple, daily necessity of clean underwear that many of us take for granted.


During the month of March, we will be collecting

boys and girls underwear from size 4T to size 12/14.


Please drop your donated items in the lobby!

Wellness Wednesdays - An alternative approach to Lent

We are SO excited to announce a "Wellness Wednesday" program in partnership with the church. This year, instead of giving up something for Lent, try taking a different approach. As Luke 10:27 states, we are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and love your neighbor as yourself. Join us during the Lenten season for 4 weeks of renewal and wellness as we focus on growth of the body, mind, and soul! Give excuses and laziness and take on a small group class as we work to expand our faith walk.


Of course all of these things still require some degree of “giving up”. If you attend one of these classes, you may have to “give up” some time you’d normally spend online or watching television.


Don't worry about dinner!

We will offer dinner for $3 a person from 6 - 6:30 and then you can choose the class you would like to participate in from 6:30 - 8:00.


We are so excited to offer the following classes:
