June 2017 COOS NEWS
COOS Changes

Coos welcomed a new teacher and a new Pastor this week!  Melanie Perez joined our team in the Lions classroom.  Melanie is finishing her degree in Child Development at El Camino College and she has lovely past experience in Christian Preschools.  Pastor Gary has moved here from Arizona with the help of Realtor and COOS Mom Lee Amitai, he found a place to live in Torrance (Thank you Lee).  Pastor Gary is an "intentional interim Pastor" who will be with us for one year.  Pastor Gary will vision with us for the future and help us work through anything needing changes, improvements or to be built upon.  Pastor Gary's wife Jane will be living in Arizona and traveling here from time to time.  Jane was a preschool teacher and taught many grade levels, so we are hoping she will join us too!!

The Angels classroom will be saying goodbye to teacher Cyndi McAdoo after ten years teaching with COOS.  Even though it is hard to say goodbye, we are so happy for Cyndi moving to a preschool following the Reggio Approach.  I just know she will blossom in this approach!  Cyndi's last day at COOS will be July 7th, 2017.  Congratulations Cyndi!!

Which leads us to more changes!  Sasha Bozzalla has accepted the Lead Teaching Position in the Angels Classroom!! We are so excited to see what  this new journey will unfold with Ms. Sasha in the Angels classroom!!  Congratulations Sasha!!

Which leads to the last big change for this newsletter!  Katia Pacheco has accepted the Lead Teaching Position in the Sonshine classroom!   Congratulations Katia!!  

Congratulations also to teachers Cyndi and Sandy on finishing their Bachelor's Degrees in Child Development in May.  We are so proud of both of you!  There will be a special Baccalaureate service for Cyndi and Sandy here at Our Savior Lutheran, Sunday, June 18th at 10am.  

Congratulations everyone!  What an exciting time of new journeys for so many.  We will pray for blessings in these changes!!

Blessings in Christ,

Ms. Beverly Charsha, M.A.
