Happy New Year! We are so happy to be back together at preschool in 2021. Here are a few quick reminders about what we will be looking forward to this month.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day – Mon., Jan. 18th – PRESCHOOL CLOSED
We will be celebrating the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., along with the rest of the nation, by taking the day to remember and reflect on his service and sacrifice. At the preschool, we approach the concept of social justice at an age appropriate level by acknowledging the meaningful contributions of historical figures such as MLK but more specifically by reflecting on the love and nature of God. God teaches us that we are all created in His image (Gen. 1:26), that we are all one in Christ Jesus (Eph. 5:21), that we are called to stand for others (Prob. 31:8-9), and most importantly to love God and each other. (Matt. 22:37-39, Jhn. 15:12).
Snow Days – Thurs., Jan. 28th & Fri., Jan. 29th
We are so excited to announce an on-site field trip for this winter, Snow Days! Starting on Thursday, January 28th, we are turning the back end of the preschool parking lot into our very own winter wonderland with actual snow! The snow will be provided by an outside company, Arctic Glacier, who specializes in snow/ice events. Each classroom will have an opportunity to explore the frosty fun as an extension of their classroom’s yard time.
We recommend bundling up your little ones on those days and sending snow appropriate clothes and footwear plus sending extra clothes to change into after the event. Each classroom will have a half hour window of time to play in the snow on both Thursday and Friday.
*This event will be postponed if the forecast calls for rain on either of our planned days.
