February 2018 Preschool News and Calendar of Events

During the month of January, the students all enjoyed investigations into winter, snow, ice, and all things COLD! We played with ice, enjoyed a snowball target practice outside, and learned about winter animals. After just a few short days of cooler weather, winter has seemingly come and gone here in SoCal (sigh!).

We are now moving into the month of LOVE here at preschool! Classrooms will be colored with red, white and pink while students learn about loving others, God’s love for them, friendship, and the holiday of Valentine’s Day. Many classrooms will be celebrating with a special party, so be on the lookout for details from your child’s teacher.


Mark your calendars: Just a reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on February 9th (teacher in-service) and February 19th (Presidents’ Day). Enjoy the extra time with your precious little ones!

Kinder Camp is held on the PCS campus (in the TK, First Grade and Kindergarten classrooms).
