News for Parents

March Newsletter

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? -Psalm 27:1

Pre-K Monthly Theme

This month’s theme is Art Gallery.  We will be exploring different art techniques and may even paint with nontraditional painting tools such as spoons, forks, marbles, etc! We will be celebrating Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on Tuesday, March 2nd.  We will also be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th where leprechauns will be doing mischief in the classrooms and we will enjoy “Lucky Charms” for snack.

We will be learning the letters S, T, U; the numbers 15 & 16 for Seagull & Pelicans and the  number 8 for Alligator-Dolphin; the Diamond shape; and the color Green.

The Bible theme this month is “Armor of God”. We will show the kids how they can use God’s Word to fight against sin.

What We’re Studying

Our Creative Curriculum Study will be Balls. We have noticed that the children are very interested in balls. They’re curious about different kinds of balls, how people use balls, what they are made of, what is inside them, and how high they can bounce.

Questions: What can a ball be made of? Shape? What’s inside? How fast do they roll?

After School News

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

   The Easter Bunny is coming soon, so it’s time to bring in 1 dozen (12) PRE-FILLED plastic eggs prior to March 25th. Our Easter Egg Extravaganza will be on Thursday, April 1st. The office will collect all eggs as they come in and they will be isolated for a week after they arrive.

   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.

   Security cards are now being used 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.

Parent Reminders

*Face masks are still required for all adults upon entry. Both locations have hand sanitizer outside the front doors. Please sanitize!! Thank you for your continued cooperation to keep our children healthy and safe.

*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.

*Weather change is here and so are the bugs! Remember to apply your bug spray every morning prior to leaving home, so your child can enjoy playground time without bugs biting. This also includes sunscreen. Teachers will only reapply in the afternoon with a Doctor’s Note.

*NO TOYS FROM HOME: Children are NOT allowed to bring outside toys (not even show-n-tell on Fridays). To eliminate further contamination risk, we ask that you follow this policy. All non-essential daily items will be returned with the parent at drop-off.  Help us stay healthy and open by doing your part.

*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.

*Don’t forget Daylight Savings on Sunday, March 14th. Set your clocks forward one hour.
