HAPPY SPRING!! Where oh where did this school year go? It seems like only yesterday that we first gathered, made new friends, and were thrilled to see our buddies from the previous year Who can begin to wrap their heads around the fact that May is just around the corner? April should bring us warmer temperatures that are here to stay…we hope! This is such a meaningful time, as we explore the telling of the Easter story with our Pastor’s guidance to the children.

The month begins with the letter” U” and learning all about the sounds it makes. We will have a fun unit on What Goes UP, and will be making some colorful hot air balloons! The second week of April brings the letter “V.” The kiddos will be crafting some VERY Cute Bunny Faces just in time for the Easter Bunny!! We will be learning all about the letter “W” during the third week of the month. Our friends will have such fun creating beaded WORMY creatures. The sky’s the limit to how adorable these little guys will look!! April comes to a close with the study of the letters “X” and “Y.” A fun highlight is making our edible XYLOPHONES! They are made out of a graham cracker, icing, M&M’s and a pretzel stick with a mini marshmallow for the mallet. These are not only adorable, but yummy in our tummy!! Watch for our YELLOW Fork Tulips to pop up when we study the letter “Y”. Our dear friend, JoHo the storyteller, will be coming to the Center on Wednesday, April 26th!!

Happy blessed April birthdays to our friends…Colin Zahner, Kara Sexton, Eli Marston, Halen Major, and Jack Mitchell 
