“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” (NIV)


Our themes this month are:

Feelings, Caring & Valentine’s Day, and Community Helpers



Groundhog – Breaking News...


Tune in on Tuesday 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 does not see his shadow???

(I can never remember!) *


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



Valentine’s Day Celebrations!


Your child’s teacher will reach out to you through the Class DoJo as to what kind of celebration they will host for Valentine’s Day. If your child chooses to bring cards in for their classmates, please have them sign their name on each card, instead of addressing them individually to friends. (It takes a realllllly 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.



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


On Friday February 12th Noah's Ark will be participating in our annual Trike-A-Thon to help raise funds for St. Jude Children's Hospital during their morning outside time. (Keep your eyes open for an envelope that will be in your child's file, as it will contain important information for this special event.) Please include any donations for St. Jude (checks are made payable directly to them) in the envelope and hand it in by that morning.


  • As always, if you wish for your child to participate in the Trike-A-Thon 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!)



Noah’s Ark will be CLOSED Monday February 15th

in observance of President’s Day



Kindergarten Bound in August? Read on!


Our upcoming VPK graduates have a choice to attend the school they are zoned for, to sign up for a (free) charter school option, or to choose a school outside the predetermined zoning area to best fit your child’s needs. Please note that this window of opportunity is limited during the month of February only!
