St. John’s Preschool Plus
April 2018 Newsletter
New Mexico weather can be so unpredictable; please continue to send your child to school with a light jacket. As the days get warmer, please put sunscreen on your child prior to bringing them to preschool. You can also send them with a sunhat and sunglasses. The preschool staff will encourage the children to wear them during outdoor time. Be sure to label all items.
Several of our April themes include spring, plants, butterflies, textures, Earth Day and Easter.
Our Spring Program is scheduled for Thursday, April 12th, and Friday, April 13th at 11:30 a.m. in the Family Life Center (gym). The spring concert will give our families a glimpse of what the children have been learning in their music class throughout the school year. We ask that each family bring in a tray of finger foods to share during the reception that follows. You may drop off your goodies in the morning at the preschool office.
Thank you Ms. Barb for loving our students and giving them a love for music. We so appreciate you!
Jolly Elder Presentation
This in-house concert is directed by Ms. Barb and will take place on April 11th at noon. This is always a sweet little presentation where the children sing spring songs to our older friends in the congregation. This is a beautiful generation overlap where both young and old are smiling.
Preschool Garden Update
Thank you for your generosity toward the preschool’s garden. We have received all of the items on our garden wish list. The children will be working on the garden and planting seeds at the end of April. We encourage the families to stop by and visit our garden area. It is located next to the upper-level playground on the south side.
Resources for Families
The preschool offers resources for our families through our website at www.preschoolplus-abq.org. Under Parent Resources you will find the NAEYC button:
Click on it and go to “Our Work” which will take you to “For Families” where you can find research-based sources, tips and ideas for families.
St. John’s Preschool will offer six summer camps throughout June and July. Enrollment for this program is underway. Summer camps fill up quickly. Each weekly camp is $130.
