Preschool Weekly News | November 16

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

We hope you all had a relaxing 3 day weekend with your families.  We are back in action at the Preschool.  We are gearing up for Thanksgiving with tons of fun projects.  Many of the classes are focusing on healthy eating.  They are learning all about the different food groups and how they can help our bodies grow.

This week in chapel, our special guest was Mr. Marsh and his class.  They spoke about Daniel in the lion’s den!  The high school team talked about how when we are scared, we can always call on the Lord and he can help us.  All of our preschoolers were delighted to have Mr. Marsh’s class come and visit.  It was a wonderful time of connection and worship with the high school students.  They were such wonderful teachers.
