February Preschool News

February started off with a visit from our little fury friend Puxatony Phil; who saw his shadow and now we will see six more weeks of winter! We will be having more visitors this month as well. February is childrens Dental Health month so Dr. Logan, our friendly neighborhood dentist, will come share with the children some good brushing habits and teach them that good eating habits go hand in hand with good brushing habits! Dr. Logan shares songs and stories, along with showing them items they will see at a dental office. Dr. Logan teaches them how important their teeth are for smiling, biting, chewing and talking! We really appreciate Dr. Logan's visit each year! We continue learning about God's Word and how much he loves us all through the stories of Jesus calms the storms, Jesus feeds the 5000, Jesus visits Martha and Mary, and Jesus blesses the children; as told by Pastor and Vicar Jonathan. Our Spanish introduction for the Pre-K students, which last until Cinco de Mayo in May, is underway. We thank Mrs. Lauren Gonzales for helping us this year - Mucho Gracias!! Of course, February brings Valentine's Day, we will be having our celebrations on the 13th and 14th. We have no school on the 18th, it is an in-service day. Our service project for the month is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Trike-A-Thon. A trike-a-thon rises vital research dollars for the battle against childhood catastrophic diseases, and at the same time provides a program in which preschool children are introduced to the concepts of tricycle and riding toy safety. The children learn about safety through a series of lessons that are a big hit, like to always wear you helmet! We would love to have you come visit and see the students participate in the trike-a-thon, which is scheduled for February 20th and 21st, starting around 10am both days. Help us help other children!
Our Chapel dates this month are the 27th and 28th, times are as follows; 11:00am, 11:30am, and 2:30pm for Pre-K and 10:30am, 11:00am, and 1:30pm for the 3 year olds. Please join us if you can! And what would the month of Fenruary be without celebrating the Hat-in-the-Cat's birthday! A special feline will be joining us for some green eggs and ham, on the 29th. Look for pictures on the preschool blog. If you would, while doing your grocery shopping please remember that we are still collecting Shop-n-Save receipts, which provides great programs to the preschool children through the S.E.E.D Program. Campbell's containers are out and located by the school rooms and in the greeting area. God bless you all for your constant support and love of the preschool and these programs. We can't thank the congregation enough for all you do in the love of children and Christ.
If you have any questions about the preschool or any special talents you would like to share with our preschool students, please contact Debbie Levato at 724-847-7291, we are always looking for special and different experiences for the children.
