Wow! I can’t believe it’s already May! I want to take a moment to thank you for being so welcoming in my first months as Director. It has truly been such a blessing to take on this role. Each child here is a gift from God and so precious! Anderson Hills Preschool exists to help grow a child’s love for Jesus, love for others and love for learning. What a joy and a privilege it has been to watch your children blossom and grow this school year.
I have enjoyed teaching the children the Fruit of the Spirit during Chapel time each month. Our final Chapel days will take place May 3 and 5 and our topic is “Peace.” I will be sharing the story “Jesus Calms the Storm” from the Beginners Bible and we will be talking about praying for peace when we are afraid.
The Anderson Township Fire Department will be visiting the preschool with a fire truck and ambulance on May 8 and 12 and the children will learn how the firefighters use the different features of the vehicle when they respond to a call for help. Forest Hills Public Schools will be bringing a school bus for our 4 and 5 year old students to check out in preparation for kindergarten.
We will be celebrating Children’s Book Week in May and I will be visiting each classroom to read a book. I will also be talking to the children about the Hamilton County Library’s Summer Reading Program. I encourage your family to take part in this free program. The program runs from June 1- July 31 and children will receive a free book and activity book at sign up. Children earn fun prizes as they continue reading or listening to stories throughout the summer. You can get more information on the Hamilton County Public Library website. In terms of learning, the most important activity you can do with your child is to read to them every day and I encourage your family to participate in the library’s program this summer.
In Christ’s Name,
Katie Connors, Preschool Director
