Dear Pre -K Families
This week begins Holy week and the end of Lent. Lent began on Ash Wednesday. We start this week celebrating Palm Sunday, Good Friday and then Easter on Sunday. During the past 40 days, we have been learning about being closer to Jesus during this time of Lent through prayer, fasting and giving. We have been learning about the Stations of the Cross and if you ask your child, I think they can tell you about them. This will be a busy week for us before we conclude on Thursday for break.
There will be a donation bag in the classroom for each family to donate $2.00 towards a Pizza snack for Thursday, March 29th, if your child attends that day. On Wednesday, March 28th, our class will pray the Stations of the Cross in the back play yard as they carry their own cross. Mrs. Rebecca helped out in our class and was able to teach the children about tools and tool safety as she showed them how to sand wood and helped them to nail their cross together. They also painted them and I was able to take them to the Church and Father John blessed them for us. When they bring them home this week, please remember to take care of them as they have been blessed. I hope you will save it as a memory of their faith and time here at preschool. On Wednesday, I will provide a special snack, and if your family would like to send in a small candy or treat for their Easter baskets that would be appreciated. Also on Wednesday our School Student Council will be assisting the Easter Bunny with providing a special treat for our preschool children. Thursday, we will attend morning prayer in the auditorium with the rest of the school and watch the 1st graders and 8th graders reenact the live Stations of the Cross and the Last Supper. We will have Pizza lunch around 10:30 and the entire school will be dismissed promptly at 12:30pm. There will not be afternoon classes on Thursday. We wish you and your families a blessed Easter and a wonderful week off with your families. Classes will resume on Monday, April 9th.
A few other things....
I really enjoyed meeting with parents during parent teacher conferences. If you were not able to attend, please let me know and I am happy to schedule something with you after break.
We will still continue to collect pennies and dimes or other money to put towards our Relay for Life event through the month of April.
Please remember to turn in your Kindergarten registrations. Most of our class will be attending and spots will fill up quickly. If your family is in need of Summer care, our preschool provides care from 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday. It is open to children 2 1/2 years old through 6 years old as long as they are enrolled in our school. If you have any questions, please let me know or you may also speak with Mrs. Mary.
