Lots of Exciting Activities in the Preschool

This time of year is chock-full of activities; after the Preschool Derby, the days and weeks seem to fly by. Last week we hosted our first Preschool Derby on this campus and it was fabulous. Perhaps the KPDerby_4best one yet! The weather was perfect, the children were excited, and the grandparents were proud as they watched their little ones “Run for the Roses”. Thanks to all of YOU for sending in cookies and lemonade to make this day special for grandparents and visitors! The Fours even got to enjoy watching the kindergartners run in the Kindergarten Derby later that day!

On Wednesday, we honored our wonderful “Moms” with a special breakfast and lovely handmade gifts that were created with love and care. We also honored two retiring teachers: Karen Hopkins, with 13 years of service to the school, and Mary Pat Mann, with 20 years of service. We honored Penny Nowotny for 20 years of service to the school — she’s promised to stick around for another 20 years! Our retiring teachers will be honored with a brick on the Alumni Walkway of Honor this summer. Penny and Mary Pat Muffins_4were given an engraved abacus and will have their names added to the 20-year service plaque in the Main Amp. Each of these remarkable women has had a positive impact on our children and families.  And I know that I speak for everyone in the St. Francis community when I say it has been a privilege to be a part of the journey with you.

Have you made your child’s summer camp plans yet? Chances are you have thought about it but are waiting to sign up because this time of year is jammed with activities. If you haven’t registered your child, please do so TODAY. Our camp is for children ages 2 (by the first day of camp) to rising 1st grade. On Tuesday, May 12th at 3:30 p.m., we will host our Summer Camp Open House. Please plan on stopping by to meet the camp teachers and to hear more about our plans for our summer in the country!
