News This Month From The Preschool:

 

Prince of Peace Preschool/Kindergarten * February 2021 

 

Happy 2021!!!

January arrived with lots of happy faces! The children and staff came back from our Christmas break refreshed and full of energy! We have been focusing on Cultures of the World and Friendship in January. We held Earthquake/Storm Drills this month to help keep us prepared in case of an emergency. We had lots of learning about snow, letters, numbers, reading and dramatic play learning! A great start to 2021!

 

Lent Season and Chapel:

We hold Chapel in a more reflective manner through the Lent season, beginning Feb. 17. Lent is the preparation period before Easter, in which we reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice for us. We ask that you hold any conversations in the Narthex, outside of the Sanctuary, during this time of Lent. We will have a Prayer basket at the entrance of the Sanctuary, where families, staff and children may put any prayer request. These will be prayed over during Chapel, as a general prayer, no details will be shared.  

 

Special Chapel on Ash Wednesday:

Pastor Dave will offer a special Chapel on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17 @ 8:30am for staff members, students and families that would like to attend. Please let your teacher know, if you and your child will be attending.

 

“Somewhere Over the Rainbow!”

We have begun planning for our annual Preschool/Kindergarten Auction! We will hold it on April 24. This will be a unique event this year! We will invite children to attend with their parents and are planning some fun things for them! This will be a “drive-in” event, with car-hops bringing your food, Silent Auction in OZ (the Fellowship Hall) and an outdoor Live Auction piped through your car radio. Plus many other fun changes! This is a large event that requires lots of parent help! We will hold our next planning meeting on Feb. 10 @ 3:00pm. Please come and share your ideas and talents for this fun event! This is a large event and our primary fundraiser. It requires lots of parent help! Please

let me know if there is any

area in which you would like

to serve for this event.
