Have a Wonderful Summer!

Today was the last day of preschool for our T/Th crowd. We have had a fabulous year together and both Mrs. Barrington and myself feel extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to teach these amazing children. We will miss them all. Some will be moving on to Kindergarten in the fall, but others will join us again in September! Either way, there will be new adventures for all. Our prayers are with you this summer as you enjoy family time, exciting summer outings, and new discoveries each day with your children!

May the Lord bless you and keep you now and always!

Wonderful Days

Thank you to every family for coming to the closing program and graduation! It was a wonderful evening recognizing your wonderful children and the great year they have had in preschool!

The last two days in class the preschoolers have been busy with centers of their choosing. They each picked a favorite activity from the year and we have been doing those favorite things. They also made plans for the end of the school year parties. Notes went home for items we need donated for the parties. If you are able to contribute, please email and let me know what you will be bringing.

We had also had music with Miss Marsha both on Monday and Tuesday. She really is an amazing music teacher and I am so thankful for her teaching the love of music to the preschoolers!

I will be gone tomorrow as my daughter is once again ill. I will be in class on Thursday and Friday.

A HUGE THANK YOU!!!

A special thank you to everyone who volunteered time and donated items for the rummage sale! We made just around $600 for the preschool! This will go a long way to enhance the preschool for next fall. We could not have done it without volunteer help, so again and again... THANK YOU!!!

Monday Night!!!

Our Closing Program and Graduation is set for Monday, May 24 at 6pm. The preschoolers will give a performance and our graduates will be recognized! Following the program will be a PEANUT/TREE NUT FREE snack and dessert potluck!

Our Last Week

Can it be possible that this is the last week of preschool? The year certainly went by quickly! This week we will be making a list of our favorite activities and then we'll make sure and get them done before the week is over. On Thursday and Friday we will also be having an end of the year party!

This week during Jesus time we will be learning John 3:16 and talking about the love of Jesus!!

We can not thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to invest in the life of your children! We have been blessed beyond measure. Have a wonderful summer full of family fun and adventure!

Seed Art

Miss Holly came in today for art to created art out of seeds! The preschoolers were very focused and really enjoyed creating art with glue and seeds. Their artwork was amazing! Their masterpieces are drying and will come home soon. It was fun to see how proud they were!

We are getting ready for the rummage sale. Tomorrow morning we will be sorting items for the sale and getting everything set up. If you have some extra time to help out, we would love your help! We also still need help hauling things off on Saturday at 1pm when the sale is over.

Mid Week Fun

We had a busy day! Practice makes perfect, and I am so proud of the preschoolers as they continue to practice for Monday's program! During centers they were busy making signs for the program and creating decorations for the sanctuary. We also worked on BIG floor puzzles with Miss Annie and did speed building with cups... timers and all! They LOVED it!

Outside time was fabulous with lots of treasure hunting for gems. The gems/jewels won the vote for the the favorite activity of the day!

Silly Little Mouse!

While we had lots of options for fun today, most of the preschoolers got busy making decorations for next week's program! They made some amazing creations. I look forward to displaying them next week. They also played alphabet bingo with our congregational volunteer Annette, and did obstacle course work with our parent volunteer Tiffany.

Music with Miss Marsha was fabulous. I will venture a guess that the mouse and kitty puppets were the favorite. Ask you preschooler about them!

I'm racing against an electrical storm, so that's all I'll write for tonight!

Making Prints

Preschoolers today created their own prints while enjoying art with Miss Holly. They used Styrofoam trays and made pictures in the tray with pencils. Then they used foam paint brushes to paint over their picture and pressed paper onto the paint. When they pulled the paper off, they saw a print of their picture! The preschoolers were very excited by this new art experience!

We also practiced for the program, helped each other out during Jesus Time, and enjoyed outdoor centers. Ask your preschoolers how they helped a friend during Jesus Time and what their favorite activity outside was!

Fun in the Sun

We got started this morning by practicing for our closing program. It's sneaking up quickly! We enjoyed the sunshine today and had centers outside. We dug for treasure in the new sandbox, built with block, played soccer, danced with streamers, drew with chalk and just enjoyed being outside. We had chapel with Pastor Dudley ate snack and headed back outside for a bit more sunshine. The preschoolers ended the day by listing all of the things we did today. It was a great list!

Remember to save your rummage sale stuff for Monday! I could still use volunteers to help haul stuff away after the sale. It goes very quickly with lots of help!

Rummage Sale

Next Monday you can starting bringing your stuff for the May 22 rummage sale! I know I have a big pile ready to bring! We can use any and all donations for the sale. All money made goes directly to enhance the preschool. I still am looking for help after the sale is over to clean up and haul the extra stuff away. We could use a few more sorters on Thursday and Friday too. Please let me know how you are able to help.

Getting Ready!

This week we will be spending some time practicing and getting ready for our closing program! The preschoolers will be helping plan the big event and then we will get down to business preparing for our performance. They will be making posters to hang around the church too! We will also be having some centers time outside as weather allows. Numbers will also be hiding around the room for preschoolers to find and identify.

Our Jesus Time story of the week will be about the young boy helping keep Paul safe. Our verse is "Do good to all people." Galatians 6:10.

If you get a chance, take a look at our new sandbox in the playground area! Thanks to Kirk and Mellissa Dugger for all their work getting it installed!

Fabulous Friday

We had a wonderful day today! The sun was shining and all was well! The preschoolers did a fabulous job during SHARE circle. It is great to see how their skills for speaking in front of a group have improved over the year. Centers was full of musical instruments, stamping, forming letters out of play do and building towers with cups. We had some fun with prisms at the science table too!

Jesus Time was all about how God made Mommy's to care for us! I heard over and over just how much your children love you!

Have a wonderful weekend and a marvelous Mother's Day!

Fire Station

We had a wonderful morning at the District 12 Fire Station today! Alvina's Daddy is a volunteer firefighter for District 12 and he showed us all of his gear, lots of pictures and we even were able to crawl around in the big fire truck and ambulance! We saw gear for fighting building fires and wildfires. The kids had so much fun as they had some wonderful hands on learning!

Truck Tunes

This morning we learned a poem called "Truck Tunes." Before reading the poem, we talked about all the types of trucks we had seen before, including fire trucks. We made a secret gift for Mommy's, but all you Mommy's will have to wait until Sunday to find out what it is! We painted with trucks, making awesome tracks on the paper. The room was full of cats, dogs and owners this morning too!

We spent time thanking God for our Mommy's and hearing that God is like a mother hen, who takes us under His wing of protection!

With the cold wind, we had a super fun obstacle course inside for gross motor time. We played some fun music and crawled through tunnels, walked bumpy paths, balanced on stones, jumped from hoop to hoop and jumped through a ring. Great fun!

Rummage Sale - Help Needed!

Our annual Rummage Sale is set for May 22. We need your help in several areas. We will need people to help sort the items and set up on May 20 and 21. We will need people to help run the sale on the 22 and people to hall off the leftovers after the sale is done. I'm also looking for someone to take over the publicity for the event. All money made goes directly to enhancing the preschool! Please let me know how you are able to help. We also need your stuff that you are looking to find a new home for. We will not be taking donations until the the week before the sale, so hold on to your stuff for just a little bit longer!

Fun Stuff Ahead

We are finishing up our Firefighter unit this week. On Thursday we will be taking a field trip to the District 12 Fire Station. The M/W/F kids are welcome to come along! (Just be at preschool by 9:30 when we plan to leave or meet us at the fire station.) We will need parent volunteers for driving. Please let Mrs. Krantz know ASAP if you can drive and how many car seats fit in your vehicle.

During Jesus Time we will be thanking God for Mommys! We will learn just what our Lord thinks about Mommys and talk about what we love about our own Mommys!

I enjoyed meeting with you last week during conferences. You all have amazing children... and you are amazing parents!
