Thank You, Friends,
Desert Valley Pediatric Dentistry – for visiting and showing us how to brush and giving us new toothbrushes!
River Thompson – for the donation of playground balls and pump
Cinthia Paco – for volunteering and being our go-to medical consultant
Patty Cross – for faithfully bringing us books from the library every week
Valentine’s Day falls on the same day as Ash Wednesday this year. So, to give families the opportunity to fully recognize both, we are moving our Friendship Parties to Friday, February 16th. Watch your child’s classroom for details.
.Vision and Hearing Testing – 3rd verse
Buckeye Family Resource Center will schedule a follow up screening sometime this month. Watch for details.
We are almost there! Our window of when to expect our accreditation visit is Feb. 5th – 16th. Our validator will be Becky Hancock. She may ask to interview a few of you. If so, please give her a few minutes to talk. She will know you have a life and can’t chat long.
Parent - Teacher Conferences
Conferences are scheduled for the third week of February. Look for sign up sheets on the front counter in the next few days. Please take this opportunity to connect with your child’s teacher about how things are going, ask any questions you have, and make suggestions for activities your child really enjoys.
Early Head Start Monitoring
Every so often, Early Head Start will expect a visit from the national level to see how things are going. If they visit Garden City,it will be during the last week of February. Again, if they ask you for a minute or two of your time, please be willing. They will be clearly identified.
We have caterpillars! Check them out. They grow really quickly!

We normally update it at least once a week.
Family in Focus
Did you know that we are praying for you? We are. And we draw a name from our watering can every week or so to find a family (or team member) to focus on. When we draw your name, we will ask if there is something specific we can pray for you or your family. Experience tells me, this usually comes at a really good time! The names for the Family in Focus will be posted (without prayer requests) on the board in the entry way, along with the memory verse for the month. That way you can pray along with us and be a part of blessing various families in the Garden City community.
Also, please remember that sandals for school need backs on them to hold them on your child’s feet. The others are not really safe for school.
Scholastic Book Club
Be on the lookout for February's Scholastic flyer. Take advantage of these deals. Order your books!
Friends of Jesus. “Jesus called to them. ‘Come. Follow me.’”
This month we will not only be talking about the people we know of in the Bible who were friends of Jesus, (His disciples, Zaccheus, Mary, Martha, and Lazarus) but we will also be talking about ourselves as His friends and friendship in general. What do we look for in a good friend? How do we treat our friends? How do we want our friends to treat us? What should we do if they don’t?
