Notes from the Director

I cannot believe we are approaching spring season! Time is flying by. We are offering before or aftercare if anyone is interested this or next school year, please reach out to Susan at joyfulnoise@nj.mppresby.org or call the office. Registration is still open if anyone has not registered for next school year.

We had a great time learning about dental health with Dr. Cory from Dickerson Dental Group.

We are opening our spring enrichment soon, be on the lookout for the email to sign up. This past rounds have up quickly! Summer registration and daycare summer enrollment is 3/1. I will be sending out an email shortly with the information.

The Church is looking for a part-time bookkeeper. Please let me know if you or anyone you know is interested.

Program Highlights

STEAM: We learned about hibernation by sorting animals that sleep all winter vs. ones that don’t. We also played in our hibernation caves (under the table) with flashlights. We read the story The Snowy Day and graphed our favorite snow day activities: building a snowman, sledding, throwing snowballs, or drinking hot cocoa. For Valentine’s Day, we played with red play dough, counted hearts, and made valentines. Lately, we will work on Arctic animals: penguins and polar bears. We’ll be melting ice with droppers and creating igloos with sugar canes.

PREK COMPUTER/ENRICHMENT: Please see Mrs. Carvalho’s newsletter emailed at the end of the month for PreK. If you did not receive it, please email s.carvalho@jn.mppresby.org. Remember we are still collecting any empty ink cartridges.

BIBLE STORY: We had a fun day in Bible when we learned about the tower of Babel then worked together to build all different kinds of towers/structures. We have continued learning about kindness – we even made a kindness chain of all the ways we can be kind. We are also talking about how God and Jesus love us unconditionally and how we should share that love with others. We will wrap up February with stories of The Good Samaritan and The Lost Sheep. The Lost Sheep is a favorite as we hunt for long sheep throughout the school.
