Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” This is the verse that popped into my head when our school’s Athletic Director recently mentioned the lack of commitment and follow through many students have when it comes to our sports programs .....

As we continue through our weeks of school, the car-line traffic flow has greatly improved. Thank you so much for working with us as we are discovering the best way to run pick-up and drop-off....

Preschool News

Welcome Back!!! I pray that this first week of school for all of you has been great. I have been in and out of the classes, and it would appear that your children are already loving their new classes. Be sure to click on the link to open the pictures, so you can see the fun the classrooms have had this week.  

Next week we introduce our specials into your child's daily schedule: Music & Latin with Mrs. Criswell and Art with Mrs. Hanson & Mrs. Crissman.  

Classroom Learning

I am sure many of you have asked your children what they did in class. Perhaps some of you hear, "I played with blocks," or "I played in the kitchen". This is probably true! It is important that early childhood education classrooms have a good balance of teacher directed activities with child initiated play. So much of learning, at this age, occurs through engagement with their environment and interactions with their peers and teachers. Play allows for both of these things to happen. I have provided you with some information shared from Mrs. Garry (3yr old teacher), that explains just what learning happens when children play in classroom environments. Click the link to open and look it over.
