WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING TO SCHOOL
All children will need a complete change of clothing in a ziplock bag, labeled with their first and last name, to be left in the classroom.
THREE AND FOUR YEAR OLDS:
Children do not need and should not bring a backpack or bag of any kind.
ONE AND TWO YEAR OLDS:
Should bring a sippy cup clearly marked with their first and last name. It can contain only water.
May bring a comfort object (not a toy) like a blankie or small stuffed animal. The teacher will allow the child to use it for comfort as much as classroom dynamics allow.
Please send two diapers per day marked with your child’s name.
No toys or food may come inside the front door from home. Leftover breakfast could cause a severe allergic reaction in another student. Toys from home cause arguments between children and cause teachers to have to take a toy away instead of just welcoming a little one.
For arrival, all children should come to their classroom door to be signed in.
For dismissal, one, two, and three year olds dismiss from their classroom door. Four year olds dismiss at the north gate close to the front of the preschool entrance.
Opting Out of The Rug Rat Race (Wall Street Journal)
Below the children are enjoying the pair of hawks on our steeple. The children have been observing them, sketching them, and learning about them.
Monday morning in chapel, Pastor John shared the story of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The people wanted a king who wore a crown. But Jesus was a king who served. He washed the feet of others, and served everyone dinner. He was a different kind of leader. Mrs. Laurel, our arts coordinator, danced the older children up the aisle waving palms. At the end of the service, the younger classes waved the palms.
