Can you believe that it’s already March? We are about to spring into spring and can hardly wait to see what hatches around the preschool.
Dr. Seuss’ Birthday – Thursday, March 2nd
Did you know that Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham using only 50 words?
Published in 1960, the book’s origin started as a wager between Random House publisher/co-founder Bennett Cerf and Theodor Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss. “Bennett Cerf bet me I couldn’t write a book using 50 words or less, and I wanted to show him that I could.” – Dr. Seuss
Over the past 60 years, Dr. Seuss’ books and stories have shaped and continue to impact the world of early childhood literature. We will be celebrating him and his contributions at preschool by reading several of his books this year. Thank you, Dr. Seuss, for firing our imaginations, and our love of rhyme, and introducing us to the worlds inside of books.
Classrooms will be sending out our mid-year reports via email for all the kiddos. Be sure to take a look. Teachers will be happy to chat with parents who would like to discuss the year’s progress so far and the future
Preschool Chapel – Friday, March 10th
Our Fruit of the Spirit for the month of March is Gentleness. We will be exploring what it means to be gentle and reading the Parable of the Lost Sheep.
As it is March, we will also discuss St. Patrick, his ministry, and how he used the clover to explain the nature of the trinity, three in one. Chapel is always a wonderful time spent together in worship, fellowship, and the praise of the Lord.

St. Patrick’s Day – Thursday, March 17th
With a touch of the blarney, we will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this year with leprechauns, shamrocks, and so much more. The story of St. Patrick is also a wonderful time to talk about the call to spread the gospel with the world.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

Teacher In-service Day – Fri., March 31st – PRESCHOOL CLOSED
Our last Teacher In-service Day of the year.
