“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” -1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Pre-K Monthly Theme

This month we’re learning about Insects & Spring! Our Letters this month are; V-W-X, Numbers; 17-18 (Seagull & Pelican) & 8-9 (Alligator-Dolphin). Our Shape is Oval, and our color is Purple. We will also be learning about Spring .

Our Bible Theme will be Easter, as we learn about the life and resurrection of Jesus.  He is alive!  He is Risen!  He is Risen indeed!

What We’re Studying

We’re doing another month of our Creative Curriculum Ball Study. The kids are having a ton of fun learning 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?

Please return packet with $55 registration by April to reserve your child’s spot.

*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 are looking forward to lots of fun, special events! We will be hosting “Muffins for Mom” on May 7th at drop-off (for all moms 😊). Pelican graduation will be on Saturday, June 12th from 10 – 11AM. Due to a restricted crowd size, space will be limited to two guests per graduate (family of multiples count as one. Siblings will unfortunately not be allowed to attend). Formal invitation to follow.

   April Showers bring May Flowers, and the bugs are plentiful. Please 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 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.

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. 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 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.

*If your child has an appointment, and has missed their lunch time, they must be fed prior to dropping off. It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure the child has been fed.
