“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” -Ephesians 6:1

Pre-K Monthly Theme

This month we are blasting off into Space! We will explore our solar system, gather some “moon” rocks & discover the great beyond!! We will have a special focus on Memorial Day and Mother’s Day, look for special gifts to go home celebrating our mothers. We will be reviewing Colors and Shapes; Letters Y & Z, Numbers; 19 & 20 (Seagull & Pelican) & 10 (Alligator-Dolphin).

Our Bible lesson will be on Abraham obeying God. We will learn that God is happy when we obey.

What We’re Studying

We’re onto a new Creative Curriculum Theme….“Trees”.  We’ll be observing and comparing trees to learn about what lives in them, what they’re made from, and who cares for them. We hope that this study will help children explore and appreciate nature.

Question: Did you see a tree on your way to school today?

After School & Camp News

Summer Camp is right around the corner! This summer, our theme is VBS’ Destination Dig. We’ll become junior archaeologists and study tangible pieces of the past to learn about who Jesus is and why He came. Along the way, we’ll uncover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13 that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.

*After School Parents, please notify the office on days your child will NOT be riding the bus. If your child has been sent home sick from Elementary School, they cannot attend After School that day.

Director’s Notes

We have a couple events around the corner! We will be hosting “Muffins for Mom” on May 7th at drop-off. We encourage all moms to drop off this morning for muffins and other special treats! Pelican graduation will be on Saturday, June 12th from 10 – 11AM for those who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall.

   Help us reach 5 stars! We would LOVE for you all to leave a Google review/testimonial! All who participate will receive a $10 tuition credit! If your child/children attend both schools- feel free to leave one for each school.

   We are offering a referral bonus program to our families! Our referral program is to congratulate and reward our families that talk about and recommend our schools to their friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. If you send a new family our way, please make sure they have your name to record as a referral. Once the newly referred family has been enrolled, and started attending regularly, your tuition account will be awarded $50.

   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 now bring in LABELED sunscreen and bug spray. A Doctor’s note is not required. 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.

   At this time we are continuing with our drop-off/pick-up COVID policy (no parents past the front foyers). We will still do regular temperature checks and send children home for any illness. *Face masks are still required for all adults upon entry. Check/re-read our sick policy.

Parent Reminders

*Friendly reminder- Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3-7th.

*It is vital that you use your fingerprint to check your child in/out. If you are unable to sign in/out through our computer touch screen, please see the office for a bypass code. Also, please remember to use your security cards to enter the buildings. Please make sure to always have yours on hand. If lost or if you would like to add on family members, they are $10 per card.

*No nuts/peanut butter food or treats allowed. We are a nut free campus.

*NO TOYS FROM HOME: Children are NOT allowed to bring outside toys (not even show-n-tell on Fridays). All non-essential daily items will be returned with the parent at drop-off. 

*A child may not be in underwear until they are 30 days accident free, documented by the preschool. Potty charts are noted daily. All children non potty trained will be in a pull-up until accident free for 30 days. Rate changes will be applied once the child has been documented accident free.

*Check daily reports for any needs such as diapers, wipes, pull-ups, etc.
