Pre-K Monthly Theme

Marvelous May! This month we are learning all about Gardening. We have been working hard on gifts as we celebrate all kinds of Moms on Mother’s Day! In the month of May we will also pay our respects for those who have lost their lives for our freedom in honor of Memorial Day.

Our letters this month are Y & Z, our numbers are 19 & 20 for Seagull & Pelican and 10 for Alligator-Dolphin. We will review all shapes and colors. Our Bible theme this month is “The Fruit of the Spirit”. God wants us to try to be good and have the fruit of the spirit in us.

   Be sure to apply your bug spray and sunscreen at home prior to coming to class. We may re-apply in the afternoon if needed. You may bring in LABELED sunscreen and bug spray. And remember save those cute Spring sandals, flip-flops and Crocs for home. They are hazardous on the playground and the children can easily slip in them.

  • We will continue to run the children to and from their classrooms (no parents past the front foyers).

or are waiting on COVID test results, your child is not able to attend school.
