Here We Come!

For their last day of preschool, the 3K and 4K Classes lined-up to walk upstairs to the church auditorium. The Preschoolers had practiced diligently for this moment. As the children stood anxiously in the hallway, the door suddenly opened for them to walk the “red carpet” laid out for their entry. Family and friends cheered on the little stars as they made their way to their seats. The time had come for them to shine! The 4K Class made their way to the stage to begin their performance of  “A Morning with the Little Stars.” The program began by everyone stating the pledges to the Bible, Christian Flag and American Flag. The 4K Class then sang songs such as “My God Is so Big,” “Days of the Week” and “If I Were a Butterfly.” The 3K Class also joined the 4K Class in singing “Peace Like a River” and “Mr. Sun.” The four-year-old students also stated Galatians 5:22-23, as well as, individual scriptures about the “Fruits of the Spirit.” Just before Preschool certificates were distributed to the 4K Class, the class sang a super exciting song for them, “Kindergarten, Here We Come!” After each certificate was given, the 4K Class was then announced and congratulated for officially becoming Kindergarteners! The celebration continued at “Kidz Bounce Party” in Asheboro after the program. Both the 3K Class and 4K Class enjoyed celebrating the beginning of summer break and their advancement to the next class. A fun time was had by all!

Here, They Grow

school - pre-k - '15 end of yearWhere does time go? Five days a week, seven hours a day, the good times roll as the preschool has full days of learning fun. Mrs. Megan, Mrs. Kelly and Mrs. Della shower their little ones with love, making the days such fond memories. Following in the paths and heritage of preschool teachers, Mrs. Megan keeps the goals simple so the boys and girls begin their school learning process with a strong desire to grow and learn. In especially the four-year-old program,  the ladies emphasize letter and sound recognition, writing names well,  and gaining an understanding of Bible stories. 

Mrs. Megan said, "I believe each child must learn according to the strengths and abilities God has given him/her."

Some of the most precious times have been watching the children act out Bible stories in class or on the playground. She said, "We knew they were taking in even the little things. What we were sowing, we were already reaping. It's always a blessing to see the product of hard work."

Through arts, crafts, experiments, Mrs. Megan keep the hands-on approach for much of the class' learning experiences. "We learn to write our names, to recognize and write letters and sounds, use introductory math skills, but the developing of overall academics is essential so the children can achieve according to their level of development."

Each day is exciting for the teachers and students, but the impact is truly rewarding. These dedicated ladies plant the seed for someone else to water, watch them grow and then blossom.
