I can’t tell you how thrilling it was to have all my little friends back at preschool on Tuesday. There were so many smiling faces and we welcomed our new friends with open arms. I think the cooler weather was a much needed relief for all. If you were not able to attend Parent Night or would like to get more information about the school, join us on Thursday, September 15 at 1:15 for our Beginning of School Parent Meeting. This meeting is very important if you are interested in volunteering at the preschool or being a room parent.
We meet upstairs in The Gathering Place.
• Chapel News
We are so excited to have an opportunity each week to develop your child’s spiritual maturity through our weekly chapel service. Chapel is a great time to sing praise songs to God and to learn about God’s truth. Family Life Pastor Louie Murillo and Worship Pastor Caleb Miller will lead your children in a chapel each week. Your child will probably come home telling you about “The Chapel Guys” while singing praise songs. They will focus on key scriptures each week that will help your child to understand God’s truth. We will also send home a weekly chapel chat that will help you dig into the lesson deeper at home. In the month of September we will be learning about God’s Holy Word, Moses and the 10 Commandments, Jesus at the temple, and the story about the boy with the fish and loaves.

• Musical Notes
September is all about spontaneous movement: the spark within and feeling the beat. Music naturally makes children want to move. Early childhood is not a time to show children how to move or limit their ways of moving. I will be encouraging the students to express whatever they are feeling through their bodies and to foster that creative development. My goal is to help them to feel good about themselves! I want them to experience all the different ways in which our bodies move and I want them to know that I value their creativity!

• All About Art
We are beginning our journey in art class with the study of color. The primary colors and secondary colors are introduced first. We will learn about neutrals and how to alter a color by mixing it with a neutral to create a tint, shade or tone of that color. The last part of the month, we will have some fun with lines and learn how a line can become a shape. This will help to enrich our drawing and writing skills later in the year.

Why teach preschool science? Because it’s FUN! It also helps children understand the wonderful world we live in, drives their natural curiosity, and helps foster a love and appreciation for nature that can carry throughout their life. During this year, we will explore big concepts in science such as comparison, observation, grouping and patterns. Throughout the month of September, we will be observing and discovering things about trees. We will begin our investigation journey to observe our CCP trees and record our findings. Throughout the year we will note any changes we see in our trees. It would be great to start your own tree chart at home! Pick your favorite tree and talk about any changes you and your family discover! It’s all about trees in September. Happy observing scientists!

• Preschool Service Project
The preschool will be collecting old functioning cell phones this school year. The phones will be sent to Flipswap reLeaf. A tree will be planted for every device that is recycled. They will also give us a monetary donation for each phone. The money collected will go to Encompass Kids – a ministry for underprivileged children in west Texas. The donation box is located by the preschool office. If you have any questions please contact Bessie Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
