Touching Base

I hear the end of the year parties were phenomenal!  Many thanks to those parents who helped make those such a HUGE success.  I am so sorry I was unable to be there.  I certainly missed you all.

I just wanted to touch base and let you know I am working on a plan to help preschool families and friends stay connected over the summer and to help new preschool families make connections before the school year starts in September.  I'm hoping to have my plan in action within the next few days, so keep watch!  I'll be posting here on the blog as well as our Facebook page.

We Are Ready!!!

We are ready for tonight!  The preschoolers have practiced and are confident, and I am too!  I can't wait to celebrate the past year with you all tonight.  I am very proud of all of the preschoolers and am excited for the graduates moving on to the next step of Kindergarten!  They are READY!!!

We spent the morning together practicing for tonight, making creative lamps at the "Lamp Shop," worked with lentils, smooshed play do and painted with watercolors.

In worship we sang our favorite worship songs and made a list of the many things we are thankful for.

I am incredibly thankful for each one of you, even those of you who read this and live far away.  I know many grandparents enjoy reading about their grandchild's preschool day and I think it is fantastic.  Thank you for supporting your special preschooler through prayer, conversation and love.  Those of you who are parents, I am especially blessed by each one of you.  The relationships we have built with one another over the last year or two will not be forgotten or lost.  I treasure each one of you.

Today and everyday, I am thankful!

God Know All About Me

We enjoyed learning about how much God know all about us, and how much he loves us.  We read a funny book that the preschoolers loved, describing just how much God knows about us!

We released our ladybugs into the wild today.  That was a fun experience.  It has been so much fun to find all the different stage of the ladybug's life cycle in the wild on our playground!  Today we found a larva that had just emerged from the egg.  AMAZING!!!

We are busy getting ready for the program.  I hope you are as excited about it as I am!

Coming Up This Week


These last two weeks of preschool will focus on getting ready for our program this Thursday (May 16) and thinking about our favorite parts of preschool and what we look forward to this summer and beyond.  We’ll be doing a lot of the favorite activities of the children and enjoying our last two weeks together. 

Our Closing Program and Graduation will be this Thursday at 6:30pm. 

The Program starts right at 6:30pm.  It will be held upstairs in the sanctuary.  Please keep your preschooler with you until they are invited to join their teachers up front.  After they are done with their performance, the children that are not graduating will return to you for the remainder of the program.  Those that are graduating will stay up front and receive their certificates.  After they have all received their certificates, they will return to their seats with you. 
When the program is finished you are invited to head downstairs to enjoy a short reception. 
Those of you who have signed up to bring food or drinks, please take them downstairs before the program begins.  

DON'T FORGET TO SUNSCREEN YOUR KIDS BEFORE PRESCHOOL!  WE'LL BE OUTSIDE A LOT AS LONG AS THE WEATHER STAYS THIS NICE!

Practicing Our Songs

We started out the morning with our program practice.  We'll be working on this everyday until the 16th!  It's so fun to watch the preschoolers sing and think about last September... they have grown so much over the school year!

Even though our program has moved to the 16th, the last days of preschool have NOT changed.  Preschool will continue through May 23 and May 24.

We will be outside a lot more if the weather continues this way!  Hats are welcome and water bottles are encouraged.  Please have both clearly labeled.

Getting Ready!

We had our first program practice this morning.  The preschoolers are working on performance hands, feet, smiles and voices.  They are a pretty amazing group of kids!

We spent part of the day working on a special Mother's Day project!  We also changed the color of shaving cream, enjoyed construction paper art, played with magnets, observed and drew different types of flowers and did a little bit of building.

Ask your preschooler what we learned about in our worship time.  If they need a hint, ask them about the shipwreck!

We also enjoyed the glorious sunshine!  We have added a hanging tent to our outdoor area and it has been so fun seeing what the kids do with it.  They are a creative bunch!

SHARE Day is Thursday and Friday and our Closing Program is May 16 at 6:30pm.  The last days of preschool are May 23 and May 24.

Coming Up This Week...


The last month of preschool has arrived!  The weather is cooperating and we are enjoying these last weeks together.  This week we will spend time getting our closing program ready!  We will be practicing our songs upstairs, practicing our performance hands, performance smiles and performance voices!  This is always a lot of fun and I am very proud of your children.
We will be spending lots of time outside as the weather allows, so please send you child with sunscreen already applied if you want them to have sunscreen.  Hats are always welcome. 

In worship we will hear about a big storm and shipwreck.  We will also hear how God protected Paul and everyone else on the ship.

Thursday and Friday this week are SHARE Days!  Mark your calendar as these will be the last SHARE Days of the year.

I will be gone to Seattle on May 9 and May 14.  Thank you for your continued prayers.

Mrs. Krantz and Mrs. Barrington

Fun, Fun, Fun

We had a super fun day.  We measured lentils in different containers and used a scale to discover which containers held more.  We saw our first adult ladybugs in our Ladybug Land.  We loved running in the sunshine.  We enjoyed drawing prayers in our prayer journals.  We sang worship songs together.  We just enjoyed one another!

Enjoy your weekend with your family!  I will be gone on the 9th, but should be around the rest of the week.

Please take note that our Closing Program and Graduation date has changed to May 16 at 6:30pm.

Glad To Be Back

It felt really good to be back in the classroom today!  I'm so thankful for Mrs. Barrington and Mrs. Eld stepping in while I was away with my husband.  I am also thankful for your flexibility and understanding while we navigate these new waters in my family.

Today we explored "Narrow vs. Wide."  We made roads for narrow cars and roads for wide cars.  The kids loved it and kept it up during our centers time.  We also worked on a special project for Mother's Day... it's just around the corner!

Our worship time was full of singing, just like Paul sang in jail.

Please take note that the date for our Closing Program and Graduation will be changed it May 16 instead of May 23.   Preschool will continue through May 24, but my husband will begin chemo treatments that last week of preschool and I will be with him.  I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.  So please plan on May 16 at 6:30pm.
