Noah’s Ark Preschool

Text Box:  February 2018


1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (NIV)                       


        Groundhog – Breaking News...

Tune in on Friday February 2nd to find out if Phil saw his shadow or not! Will we have six more weeks of Winter? Will Spring be right around the corner? Will anyone remember which one it means if he does or doesn't see his shadow???

(I can never remember!) *



Please Join Us! (Mini Chapel, Music and Modern Woodmen…oh my!)

On Wednesday February 7th at 6pm as the children will present a mini-version of our weekly chapel session for their families, followed by a sampling of music by a live band that is played at our weekly Contemporary service. The staff will be on hand to then bring the children to Fellowship Hall to enjoy pizza (supplied by Modern Woodmen) as the parents listen to a short presentation by Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial regarding financial / educational planning for families. (Pamphlets and Prizes to be given!)

Valentine’s Day Celebrations

Please be advised by your child’s teacher what kind of celebration (and on what day) they will host for Valentine’s Day. If your child chooses to bring Valentine’s Day cards in for their classmates, please have your child sign their name on each card instead of addressing them individually to friends. (It takes a really long time to deliver specific Valentines.) If you choose to send in treats to share, please remember that they are to be store-bought and not homemade - and save the candy for your sweetheart at home! 




                                               *Pssst...If the groundhog sees his shadow it means six more weeks of Winter


Trike-A-Thon for St. Jude Children's Hospital

On Friday February 16th Noah's Ark will be participating in the annual Trike-A-Thon to help raise funds for St. Jude Children's Hospital. Please keep your eyes open for an envelope in your child's file, as it will contain information and a permission slip that will need to be returned so that your child may participate. Please include any donations for St. Jude in the envelope, and hand it in by the morning of February 16th as this event will take place during your child's outside time that morning. As always, if you wish for your child to participate and this is not their designated day to attend school, you may bring them and stay with them during this event! (Please see your child’s teacher about event times for their class!)



Please take note that Noah’s Ark will be CLOSED Monday February 19, 2018 to observe President’s Day.
