School days in February have been a little “hit & miss” with the late starts, no morning classes and cancellations due to weather conditions. The Tuesday/Thursday class has
been especially hard hit. Preschool will go somewhat longer in May, but graduation will
remain on May 15th.
Conferences for the 3-year-old class were held in February. It is so good to talk with parents one-on-one about their little cherubs. Each child has grown so much and are ready for the “big 4-year-old” preschool.
The two 4-year-old classes will be joining the Trinity School Operetta on Friday, March 1st. We have been asked to sing a few songs before the play of “Snow White.” The children have been practicing our songs and they are pretty excited about being a part of the how!!:) I hope that all can attend! It will be a fun-packed evening watching the older children act and sing.
Danelle Williams, Annie’s mom, will come to speak to all three classes about dental
hygiene on the 21st and 22nd. She brings items to see including a huge set of teeth and
toothbrush to demonstrate the proper way to brush and floss. Thank you to Danelle and
Dentistry at Somerset in Ames for the dental kits.
The Bible lessons for the month of February have included: Jesus blessing the children, Jesus visiting Mary and Martha, Jesus forgiving Zacchaeus, and Jesus healing the men with leprosy. The children learned how Jesus told the disciples not to stop the little children from coming to Him, for of such is the kingdom of God. Children are important to Jesus. He died for their sins too, and they need to hear His Word. One of the stained glass windows in the church shows Jesus blessing children. Another window shows Mary and Martha with Jesus. We went up to look at these again. Martha was busy with daily tasks, as we are also, but Mary was at Jesus feet listening to her Lord. Mary chose the most important thing, as Jesus said. Against what people thought, Jesus went to the house of the dishonest tax collector, Zacchaeus, taught him of His mercy and forgave him. “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” (Luke 19:10) Jesus showed His majesty through His miracles. He healed ten lepers, caring about their salvation even more. They had asked for mercy, and Jesus gave it to them, and to us.
