As we approach the end of the school year we have one thing to say…THANK YOU! You have shared with us your greatest treasures, your children. We have been blessed by getting to know each one of you. It has been our hearts’ desire to touch the lives of these children with our faith, fun, and positive school experience that we hope will be among their happiest childhood memories. We leave this school year with many good memories, funny stories, touching moments, and most of all huge smiles on our hearts. Thank you all for such a great year! Warm weather means Flip Flops and Slip Ons. However these are not best suited shoes for all the activities we do. Please have your child wear tennis shoes or close toed sandals for preschool time. Also, we love messy activities especially the last few weeks of school. Be sure to wear clothes that are safe for messes, we are not always very good with clothing.

Maritza’s Thoughts “If you want to comfort the sad, if you want to terrify the happy, if you want to encourage the despairing, if you want to humble the proud, if you want to pacify the aggressive — there is no more effective means than music.” - Martin Luther -
Music. We are surrounded by it. Whether you are in your home or your car, traveling around the world by plane or walking to the store with your headphones on, music permeates countless layers of our lives. But why? Why does music have this pervasive presence in the lives of humanity over the course of history? Time and again throughout Scripture, we are commanded to sing and make music to God. With our modernday mindset, we may not recognize that we are being told to do something, but in the same way that we’re told we should pray, fast, and love thy neighbor, we are also told that we should sing and “make music” (i.e. play musical instruments) before the Lord. Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. (Psalm 33:1-3 NIV) Singing and making music to the praise and glory of God is an offering — and offerings are always things of value in Scripture. We offer praise, in part, because doing so fits our human nature, and is fitting to offer to our Creator. C. S. Lewis, in Reflections on the Psalms, said, “We delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise does not merely express but completes the enjoyment.” When you love something, you don’t merely praise it because you love it — you praise it in order to love it. Music has such enormous power because it is rooted in the reality of God and the creation.

May Bible Verse: Isaiah 2:5 Let us walk in the light of the Lord
