2018 is off to a fantastic start at Weekday. We welcomed our 2 Plus class to campus in January. They seem to be loving preschool!
Our 2 Day classes enjoyed learning about safari animals and WINTER WEATHER (the weather even cooperated this year).
3 Day classes walked to the fire station, learned about mounted patrol police officers, and met the Tooth Fairy to learn how to get the sugar bugs off their teeth. Their “Community Helpers” unit it always a hit.
“Dinosaurs” and “Space” have captivated out 4 Day children. They curated their own shape museums and spent a fun morning together exploring the Science Center.
This year, Valentine’s Day is also Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Lent is the season of preparation (40 days) leading up to Easter. It’s traditionally a time of prayer, repentance, fasting, and giving. It should come as no surprise that there is not a section at Target or Party City devoted to Lent. It’s not a flashy holiday with lots of commercial opportunities. So we must be intentional here. We must take responsibility for preparing for Easter with Lenten spiritual practices. Read here if you wonder: Why Lent Still Matters.
First Presbyterian Church offers an Ash Wednesday service that is suitable for the whole family. You can find those details here. There is also a free devotional for Lent that you can subscribe to receive in your inbox. For some ideas for your preschoolers, check out our suggestions in the “Try this at Home” section of our newsletter.
As we move together from winter to spring, from Lent to Easter, from Valentine’s Day to Spring Break, please know that we pray for you and your children each morning as a staff. We delight in the opportunity to grow in God’s love together.
