On Monday, October 11th we had a fantastic visit from Pasadena Fire Station 36. They showed us how firefighters outfit themselves to fight fires and even how the truck sprays water! It was awesome! This was a lovely addition to the visit we had from Jeff Ragusa, a Glendale firefighter and dad from Rm 1, who showed us his firefighter gear on Friday, October 1st. With both visits, the firefighters focused on helping the children to understand that the don’t have to be afraid when they see a firefighter fully outfitted, they are here to help. The preschoolers loved having all of our firefighters and we are so grateful for their amazing work. Thanks guys, you are our heroes!
We are so excited to meet our new students this week! We are praying for each and every family for a safe and healthy year! See you Wednesday!
Blessings from the Room 5 teachers!

We had a blast in Room 5 last week! We played a lot outside both on the structure and in the sand/water! We ended our week with big bubbles with Mr. Yorlin!
This week we have been doing lots of planting 😁 we have planted two kinds of lettuce, cucumber, yellow squash, peas, beets, radish and sunflowers. We are excited to take care of our plants and watch them grow. Stay tuned for updates.
No matter if we are inside or outside, we are silly and having fun. 🙂
Outdoor play is the best! We have been climbing on the big structure, going down the slides, runing and digging in the sand!
We have been learning how to sort bears; placing the right color bears into the right color cup. We have been practicing with mixing colors; we have mixed yellow and red to make orange, yellow and blue to make green. We have also used green and blue to create the earth.
In Room 5, we have been exploring caterpillars growing, planting beans and testing out the reaction of vinegar and baking soda!
This April’s chapel focused on the “Good News” of Christ resurrections. While Easter is a few weeks behind us, we aspire to celebrate Jesus’ love, power, and promise everyday.
We also learned the words and Mr. Tim’s hand motions to Lord I Lift Your Name On High. Below you will find a YouTube link to a fun version of the song and a preschool favorite.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NIV)
We revisited the details of the Easter Story by reading from our Rhyme Bible. It was a great way to recall everything that happened on that incredible day. He is risen!
Practicing staying safe is an important part of our preschool curriculum. This includes periodic fire/earthquake drills. On Thursday, March 11 the entire preschool took part in a fire drill. Everyone exited the preschool to muster up in the preschool parking lot for a quick headcount. The children did a fantastic job listening to teachers and we had an incredibly smooth drill. Great work everyone!
