Pre-Kindergarten April Newsletter

Ms. Becky’s classes

It’s been a long, cold winter and we are definitely ready for Spring at PECC. These last weeks of school will be filled with a variety of special events, activities and wrapping up the last few letters of the alphabet. The children have grown so much, learned so much and are well prepared for their next academic step.

Our letters in April will be Tt, Uu, Vv, Ww, and Xx, Yy, Zz. We will learn about trains and other forms of transportation. The story, “The Umbrella” will lead us through a study of the rainforest and we will enjoy a rainforest buffet of mango, pineapple, papaya and chocolate. We will make vegetable soup and learn how plants grow. Weather experiments will take center stage one day and a pile of dirt and worms will appear on our discovery table.

The Prairie Baptist Church Pastors will come and share the story of Easter with the children and we will begin practicing the songs for our Spring Program in May. Letters Q and U will be getting married with all the trimmings including a ceremony, wedding cake and dancing at the reception. “Cra-Z-y Day” will be filled with a variety of wacky things, wrapping up our study of the letters of the alphabet.

PECC will be celebrating our 40th Year the weekend of April 26th and 27th with birthday celebration and a special worship celebration. Watch for details coming soon!!

It has been a wonderful year and I have enjoyed getting to know and love your children. It will be sad to say goodbye to them as they head to new schools and new classrooms. Thanks to all of you for your love, care and support this year and I know I will see many of you again with younger children.

Spring is here! I know I am ready for some consistent warm temperatures and baseball!!! We have a very busy last few weeks ahead of us as the school year winds down and we complete the alphabet this month. April begins with the letter “Tt” and we will have a teeny tiny day and make tulips. On April 4th, it is Royal’s Day! Wear your favorite team colors as we enjoy a fun filled day. Once we complete the letter “Uu,” we will enjoy a wedding for “Q” and “U” on April 11th. We will have a ceremony and reception to celebrate. Thank you to Brittany Deupree for providing the wedding cake. If the kids would like to dress up that would be great.

For letter “Vv,” we will make some yummy vegetable soup with Ms. Becky’s class and have a wacky Wednesday during “Ww” week and be wild things. “Xx, Yy and Zz” will each have one day of focus instead of a full week. As we wrap up the alphabet it is time to start practicing for our Spring program which will be on May 14th at 9:00 A.M.

We will focus on the Easter story and the Bible verse John 3:16 this month. We will make crosses and discuss resurrection eggs plus read some fun Easter stories. PECC celebrates 40 years in early childhood education this month. On April 26th, there will a birthday celebration from 11:00am-2:00pm and a special church service on the April 27th. All families of PECC and alumni are invited to these events.

We will have a lot of fine motor skill focus in class over the next few weeks and continue to build our listening skills. This has been a wonderful school year and all the kids have grown in so many areas. They are all a blessing and a joy to have in class. Thank you to all the parents for making this a successful school year from attending conferences to providing snacks and fruit for us.

Elias Hall, Ava Murray and Jackson Grigg all turned 5 in March. Happy Birthday!
In May, Kaitlyn Lockard and Hunter Sharkey will turn 5.

Have a wonderful Spring!
