“Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.” –Esther 4:14

Alligators through Dolphin are on Number 7, Seagull & Pelicans; 13 and 14. This month’s special studies are Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day and Dental Health Month.
The Biblical theme this month will focus on Queen Esther and how she trusted in God to give her strength to save her people. We will learn about her bravery and her willingness to trust in God.
After School News
We are already getting excited about Summer Camp! This summer, our theme is, Concrete & Cranes: Building on the Love of Jesus. Campers will be strapping on their tool belts and learning that Christ is the cornerstone and how He is the foundation in which we should build our lives.
Information packets and registration forms will be ready at the beginning of March! Summer Camp is open to all graduating Pelicans who will be attending Kindergarten through 8 years old by June 1st.

Ms. Kim’s Notes
February is the month of love and as we celebrate our friends with Valentines, please help us by addressing all notes “To: A Friend” (no names). This makes it easier for non-readers and the children can enjoy passing out their own Valentines. Class parties will be on the 14th!
*In an effort to help protect our children from unnecessary exposure to contagious or infectious diseases, we ask that if you have any flu-like symptoms and/or fever, do not send your children to school. You can help prevent many illnesses by making sure your child receives immunizations and by making sure you are not masking the disease with medications such as Tylenol or children’s cold medicines.
*Please note that if your child is absent or sent home after developing a fever, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, cough, green runny nose, or anything that is contagious, it is our policy that he or she must remain home until symptom-free for 24-hours, without the aid of medication regardless of your Doctor’s note of return. This means your child will not be allowed to attend that following school day.
