May 2022

Junior Kindergarten
​Dear Parents,
  It is hard to believe that it is May. This school year has flown by very quickly! The children have grown so much, and we are proud of their accomplishments. Our goal continues to be to address the emotional, social, spiritual, artistic, academic, and physical needs of the children. As the school year ends and questions arise, please feel free to contact us.  

  Our theme this month is Our Beautiful World. We will learn that God made people the stewards of the Earth. It is our responsibility to care for the plants and animals He created. We will discuss various ways to protect the environment, the effects of pollution, and the importance of recycling. Other topics this month will include plants and seeds; an introduction to skip counting by tens; letters Y and Z; and a review of the alphabet. There will also be an introduction to sight words mom, dad, cat, dog, and you.  

  Our memory Bible verse is All things were made by God. John 1:3. Our Bible stories will include God Made a Beautiful Garden - Creation and God Frees His People. Our spiritual objective is to help the children understand that God created the world and everything in it for us to love and enjoy.  

  The children will soon be practicing for their graduation programs. Mrs. O’Brien’s ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 2, 2022. The ceremony will be at 7:00 p.m. and will take place in the Sanctuary. The children have worked very hard for this day, and we want to make it very special for them. They should come dressed in their “Sunday best.” The girls should wear dresses or skirts, and the boys should wear collared shirts. Ties are optional. The children should arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled program time. Please enter the main doors of the church with your child and drop them off in the hallway to the left of the sanctuary.

  Our field day is on Wednesday, May 25. We will be spending extra time outdoors. We have planned several activities for the children to enjoy. Please put sunscreen on your preschooler before sending him/her to school. Pizza and a treat will be provided for the children today for lunch from Adam Lamb. Thursday, May 26 will be the last day of school in the building. The children will bring their lunch to school and backpacks too, so they can pack up all their supplies to take home. 

  A letter was sent home on April 21st concerning the Legacy Park Picnic on May 27th. The large pavilion has been reserved for the Adam Lamb families. Parents are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy some playtime with their children and classmates. Mrs. O’Brien’s class is scheduled from 12:00-2:00 at the park, Cool Time ice cream truck will be at the park from 11:30-12:30 to provide ice cream treats for the Adam Lamb children and their families. Children must be accompanied by an adult. We look forward to celebrating with all of you the day of the picnic. If May 27th is a rainy day, we have scheduled a makeup rain day at the park on May 31, 2022. We will notify you concerning the time and makeup schedule via email and ClassTag. There will be NO school on May 27th if it rains!

​Dear Parents,
  It is hard to believe that the school year is almost over! It has been a wonderful year. The children have grown so much, and we are very proud of their accomplishments. Our goal continues to be to address the emotional, social, spiritual, artistic, academic, and physical needs of the children. As questions arise regarding our end of the school year activities or curriculum, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  

  Our theme for the month of May is Under the Sea. We will explore the ocean and ocean life, as well as experiment with objects that float and sink. We will also review one-to-one correspondence and meaningful counting from 0-5 and begin practicing rote counting skills from 1-20.  

  Our memory Bible verse is All things were made by God. John 1:3. Our Bible stories will include God Made All Creatures Great and Small, Jesus Calms the Storm, and Jonah and the Big Fish. Our spiritual objective is to help the children understand that God created the world and everything in it for us to love and enjoy.  

  Our last day of school is Tuesday, May 24. We will be spending extra time outdoors (Weather permitting). We have planned several field day activities for the children to enjoy. Please put sunscreen on your preschooler before sending him/her to school. The children will be treated to pizza and a dessert at the end of the Fun and Field 
Day activities. Full-day FYP will have their pizza for lunch. Please make sure you send your child with their backpack that day so they can take home all their supplies for the year.

An octopus swims in the sea,
An octopus swims in the ocean;
The ocean is where he should be.
