Preschool Weekly News | January 25

Please contact Principal Jessica Scanzon at jscanzon@kingsschools.org if you have any questions.

Our classrooms continue to focus on learning about the weather and seasons.  There are have been some great art projects during this unit.  Many of the classes have also experimented with some fascinating science projects as well. Our Red room went and visited with the Grandmas and Grandpas this week.  They enjoyed a time of prayer along with a story and some songs.  During this time of fellowship the class was able to give hugs or high fives to each Grandparent in the room. Mrs. Gopen led chapel this week.  Mrs. Gopen led our morning club friends in a song about love and kindness.  The song illustrates how we think about kindness, talk/sing about it, and then put those words into action.  The students loved the worship led by their friends.

Please look below for important dates coming up.
