Welcome to PreK

March and April News

Spring is in the air and we love it...the nice weather allows us many opportunities for outdoor fun---like reading books outside,

enjoying snacks outside, exercise and chalk outside, football and t-ball outside, nature walks and bug collecting and planting 

in the garden. During these spring months we are discussing Lent and the many opportunites we have to share a smile with others

help others , do random acts of kindness, love one another and God too. We will light the Lenten candle each day and say our

Lenten prayers. We are talking about all kinds of things--from robins to rainbows, seasons and shapes, numbers 1-20, colors and

color words, plants, seeds, observing evaporation, and watching and experimenting with our shadows. We are preparing the garden

to plant our sunflower seeds, tomato seeds and beans. We love to watch our sunflowers grow so tall and use the seeds from the

sunflowers to feed the birds and plant seeds the next year.
