March Preschool News

Happy Easter! March has been a very busy month here at preschool, we started off with celebrating Lutheran School's Week, by singing at second service on Sunday's March 2nd and March 9th. We want to thank everyone for their continued support and love for the preschool. We hope that you enjoyed our power point presentations provided by the Vicar! Thank you to all of the families that joined us as well. We took a field trip to Dr. Andino's office on March 10th. The children were given a tour of the office and they were able to sit in the big chair! They had a great time learning about visiting the eye doctor. The Chippewa Police Department visited with our students on March 12th and 13th. The children learned about stranger danger and not to be afraid to ask Police Officers for help. We continued learning about God's Word and how much he loves us all through the stories of Jesus in the garden, Peter's denial, Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension; as told by Pastor and Vicar Jonathan. We had our Easter Parties, which were handled by the parents! Great good to you all! We will have our Easter break from Thursday, March 20th through Monday, March 24th. We will see our three-year-old student back on Tuesday, March 25th. We hope you all have a safe and happy Easter!
Our service project for the month is Meals-on-Wheels. The students with the help of the teachers and staff decorated bags, made favors and upside down pineapple cakes. Thank you to Jo Martin, who runs the Meals-on-Wheels program, for all her help with this service project.
Our Chapel dates this month are the 26th and 27th, 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!
Our preschool students have been preparing for Kindergarten all year and have been visiting the schools where they will be attending Kindergarten in the Fall. This has been a great start to helping in the transition of our students from Preschool into Kindergarten. If you have any questions about transition please give me a call or stop in and see me. Thank you to all the schools for their help and cooperation in this process.
We are still collecting Campbell UPC symbols and Shop-n-Save receipts.....thank you for your continued support of these rewarding programs. 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.
