Preschool

Our Preschool students and some of our Preschool parents joined us too as we gathered for our special Chapel time on Wednesday, March 3rd.  Pastor Darnstaedt shared the message of God’s great gifts of His love and forgiveness for us through Jesus death on the cross and his resurrection. 

 

The Preschool children will all be making their own special Easter Book this month as we continue learning about the many events that led up to Easter.  Not only will the children get to review the lessons they’ve learned as they keep looking through their Easter Books, but they will also be encouraged to take their books home to show and share these important events with their families too. J

 

I think this year more than ever, we are looking forward to Spring’s arrival and being able to be outside breathing in the wonderful fresh air and building healthy bodies as we enjoy being out on playground more and more as the weather warms up.  (Outside playtime and snacks are always their most favorite things to do each day!) Our Spring Break is coming up and will be held March 22nd through April 2nd.

 

We are currently taking registrations for the 2021-2022 school year. We have 8 students in the three year old class and 7 students in the Pre-K Class that have registered so far.  If you know of someone who might be interested in sending their child to SOTHLP, please let them know I’d be very happy to give them a tour and talk with them at their convenience or they can call 812-945-3046 (School) or 502-526-6458 (cell) for more information.

 

Thank you for all of your prayers, and for the many different ways you continually support and care for the families at God’s preschool here at SOTHLP.

 

God’s blessings, Linda
