HAPPY NEW YEAR - January 2021
I know for many of us, 2020 has been a difficult and challenging year. For me, I have been working on reframing my thinking. I found there have actually been many blessings and celebrations this year. I had to think hard sometimes but my list grows longer every day. I have seen many beautiful giving spirits emerge from many unexpected places. Even in the most complicated times, God was always there. These blessings often came in a simple phone call from a friend or an encouraging word from a RBS parent. In the difficult moments, God was truly there with me. He has been the light in the dark places.
Today, rather than tabulate all the unfortunate things that challenged us this year, I’m taking note of every moment in 2020 that I saw God moving. I found myself thinking of the old hymn, 'Count Your Blessings', name them one by one. It really will surprise you what the Lord has done!
I genuinely and sincerely thank each and every one of you for hanging in there with us and being patient with the new protocols as we try to continue to navigate these turbulent waters. Looking forward to wonderful things in 2021.
Something to Think About- PLEASE READ
Parents, please carefully consider your personal contact with others over the last few weeks. We are hopeful you have been diligent and mindful of your personal and family interactions over the Christmas and New Year’s break.
COVID-19 is an extremely contagious pathogen and does not discriminate for those whom it will infect and spread. We must remain vigilant, even when we believe the risk of contact exposure is low.
Realizing you would not knowingly put your families in a position of risk. I am depending on each of you that your personal contact choices have been carefully and deliberately considered for the health and safety of not only your family but the children, families and teachers here at school. Everyone should review the RBS contact questions before sending your child back to school on Wednesday.

CHAPEL CHAT Ms Chris
As we begin a brand new year , we will be remembering God's love for us by sending Baby Jesus at Christmas and how he still loves us , even when we don't obey. We will listen to 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 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!
MUSICAL MOMENTS Ms Deborah
Happy New Year everyone! Beginning in January the Toddlers, 2s, and 3s will be singing the same theme of songs as we reinforce rhythm, dynamics, and tempo. January will be songs all about winter. The 3s will also continue the alphabet journey through music with letters M-Melody, R-Rhythm, I-Instruments, and V-Voice/Violin. The Pre-K class will be learning the different types of notes and rests (whole, half, quarter, and eighth) the whole month of January. May the music of our hearts propel us to great things for the New Year!
TOTALLY WONDERFUL TODDLERS
