MARCH NEWSLETTER:

Dear Parents,

February was another busy and exciting month. We were glad to have a full house at our Valentine's Show. The children did a fabulous job! As always, we are so proud of them. Wow, did they show off their talents and skills. The children are continuing to follow our morning routine with great confidence and success. They identify their names, hang up their coats, place their tote bags in a bin, meet on our carpet for our morning prayer, pledge, calendar time. We are completing worksheets on different skills, enjoying books, puzzles and continuing to make some beautiful projects.
Our little stars will be prepared and ready when they enter Pre-K!

With the days getting longer and Springtime just around the corner we leap into March with a renewed sense of excitement. We continue to provide an environment rich in possibilities to explore think, and discover, not only for future success in school, but for success in life. We also provide an environment which encourages respect and courtesy for ourselves and others. As parents, you are the primary source of your child's education. Home is where children learn to abide by the rules, take responsibilities for their actions, and consider the rights and needs of others. Thank you parents for doing such a fabulous job of raising your little ones into future magnificent adults. Thank you again for sharing your children with us. They are a blessing and God's greatest gift!
