Preschool Graduation & Picture Day
This year we have the largest graduating class since we opened. Normally about a third of our Preschool class will graduate. This year it is more like three thirds!
Graduation will be on May 12th this year at 6:30PM. Family and friends are all invited. We are asking parents of graduates to make a poster with their child about anything they like, their life, their favorite things, what they liked about preschool, what they are looking forward to in kindergarten…anything about them.
We will also ask parents to give a one minute commercial about their child on that night. Be thinking ahead. It can be a lot of fun! Pictures for the entire school will begin at about 8am that morning.
Comings and Goings
Please help me welcome Naomi Bernstein to our program. Naomi is a student at Estrella Mountain Community College and will be helping out as an assistant in classrooms and the kitchen.
Gone for the Summer?
If your child will be gone for the summer, please let us know so the teachers can prepare for your parent-teacher conference. If we don’t hear from you, we will prepare for your conferences the week of June 12-16.
Almost 50% of your bone mass is formed during childhood. Make sure your children get the calcium they need to form strong bones and teeth. Low fat dairy products are a great source of calcium! (Color Me Healthy).

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

Bible Theme: Easter
“Do not be afraid. Jesus is not here. He has risen!” pg. 456
All around us our children will hear of the Easter bunny, colored eggs and chocolate covered chicks. They may also get new clothes for church or school. These are all things that tell us about spring. We want to make sure they also hear about Jesus, about His love for us and about His power. That is a lesson that goes beyond seasons right into our hearts for all eternity.
