WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15 — All Family Ministry activities and most others (including Churchwide Prayer) are canceled this evening.
We are going “Above and Beyond” by providing another year with additional enrichment programs for our students. Please don’t miss out! Your children will have an opportunity to attend up to four different Extended Sessions each week based on a theme. Each full session can be prepaid with your on-line application. (Please see “How to Register” at the end of this letter.) You may also choose a day your child does not attend their regular class.
Our “Extended Sessions” will run Monday - Thursdays from 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Your child will be escorted to Room 2 for lunch bunch and will remain in that room for their Extended Session. Please pick up your child/children promptly at 2:00 p.m. Sessions can be 2 to 4 weeks long depending on the month.
The Lunch Bunch charge will be included in all sessions. The children will go to Lunch Bunch first, but will continue with Extended Sessions with a lengthened playtime & learning time that includes exploring, story time, songs, and activities.
Jamie Tinker has been our Extended Session teacher Mondays through Thursdays, but due to her busy schedule, Phoebe Ostergren will be sharing the responsibilities. Mrs. Tinker will teach Mondays and Wednesdays, and Mrs. Ostergren will teach Tuesdays and Thursdays. The children will enjoy the exciting programs that will be offered. Each class will be filled with enriching and fun activities.
Extended Session classes are organized each the week by themed days that will build on each other through the month. This will give the children a variety of experiences through-out the week, if they choose to attend all the sessions.
Matinee MondayFavorite Fairy Tales
March 6, 13, 20 and 27
Classic fairy tale stories are always a favorite amongst children! They love acting out these dramatic tales! The children will learn introductory concepts of theater and music as they explore a variety of fairy tales. Singing and rhyming will be reinforced through hands-on activities, simple props & child-friendly musical instruments. There will be a lot of opportunities for role playing and improvising. Speaking lines in front of peers will help encourage confidence as they “act out” their parts.
"Seussical" Tuesday Silly Seuss Time
March 7, 14, 21 and 28
Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer, cartoonist, animator, book publisher and artist best known for authoring children’s books under the pen name Dr. Seuss. During this Extended Session series, we will have fun with words as we explore some of Dr. Seuss’s works. We’ll meet a strange little boy named Gerald McCloy, explore What Pet Should I get and act like fools when we fish in McElligot’s pools. The fun will be endless as we take a look at some classics and interact with some less well known works of Dr. Seuss.
Mouthwatering WednesdayLittle Chefs
March 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29
Your little “chefs” will be given opportunities to participate in fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences by creating delicious goodies. They will learn about recipes, ingredients, measurement, tool safety and expanded “cooking vocabulary”. In this program they will make tasty masterpieces while learning to problem solve.
Animal ThursdayZoology Day
March 9, 16, 23 and 30
Zoology classes return. Calling all zoologists or zoologist wannabees. Join in the fun as we study and learn about the habitats, behaviors and physiology of various animals. We’ll learn about some interesting and exotic animals this session; animals that are guaranteed to intrigue, inspire and amaze even the youngest of minds!
Those families with more than one child attending will receive a 10% discount on the total cost for both children. To receive the discount, please choose the “In Person” option for payment. See Pat to get the amount of payment by either check or cash.
Our Lunch Bunch/Extended Session charge is $24 per session. Registrations and payments for the sessions are due by Wednesday, March 1. Please note: When you select a day/days, you are registering for the entire month and classes are limited to 18 students per class.
Children may attend one or more sessions each week. Children registered Monday through Thursday will receive a price break.
If our school closes, due to inclement weather on Extended Session days, you will be credited for future sessions.
We are excited about how well our Extended Sessions are going. We hope that you will want your child to join us on their favorite day! Sign up today and don’t miss out! If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me or Pat.
