January Notes from Preschool

Notes from Preschool
Happy New Year from the Preschool! I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas season.

December was a very busy month for us. We had two Christmas Programs, two Christmas shopping days (which is an extra- long lunch bunch) with pizza and a movie, vision screening, Chapel , a scavenger hunt looking for Christmas symbols and class Christmas parties! Whew….I’m still tired! I hope some of you had a chance to see our Christmas Programs….the children did an amazing job lifting their little voices up to God. Their favorite song was “Go Tell it on the Mountain” and their voices weren’t so “little” as they blasted out those words. Pastor invited the Preschool families to worship with us on December 28th to sing “Go Tell it on the Mountain” with our Sunday School. Just a warning… be ready to hold on to your pew…they really belt it out!

January will be no different, which is a good thing , as getting the children back into a routine can sometimes be difficult after a long break. During Chapel we will continue with the Christmas story as we learn about Epiphany (visit from the Magi, or the Wisemen). We’re also looking forward to visits from the Zoo and celebrating Lutheran School Week during the last week of January. Lutheran Schools Week will include PJ day (which the staff loves) Beach day, Crazy Sock day and lots of fun-filled activities to go along with these themes.

Crazy as it sounds, we will start registration for the 2015/2016 school year at the end of the month. Our current enrollment is 120, our biggest so far, and we anticipate a similar enrollment for next year. With classroom sizes increasing, we now face the issue of not having enough room for all who want to attend. We have been so blessed at Zion so please pray that God will continue to guide families to our school, and that as a school we can accommodate all of the “little” souls who walk through our doors. It is an honor to be a part of these children’s lives and to be able to teach them the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and to watch them “teach” their families. AMEN!
