At this season of gifts concludes, I am reminded of so many ways our preschool is blessed. This school year is no exception. We have truly received some wonderful gifts.
Early this fall Marcus Nameth (Ms. Robyn’s son) gifted us with two amazing magnet ball walls. He made this for his final Eagle Scout project. I know he spent hours researching the best balls, glue, etc. to make the project most successful. And it is! The kids on both playgrounds enjoy discovering how the balls will move through the pipe tracks, dependent on the way the tracks are positioned. What a wonderfully thought provoking play experience. Plus, they have fun too! We are so grateful that Marcus chose us as his Eagle Scout recipient. Thank you Marcus!
Yesterday our teachers got to have some great fun. We visited Lakeshore Learning, an educational children’s toy store that you can find out about HERE, for a teacher training. Then they “worked” hard playing “Santa” for our school. Actually, they had a blast choosing just the right things that will fill a need we have. It was also interesting to find out which of our staff members are good at math and could figure out how to make the most of our money with the coupon discount they were offering that day. I just stood back and watched them getting so excited about it all.
All this is possible because of YOU! We used fund raising money to make these purchases. So, thank you!
And finally as we prepare to leave for our Christmas break I cannot help but think about the greatest gift we’ve ever received. God chose to become human. He chose to humble himself to our limitations so that he could give us the gift of salvation. That sweet baby in a manger is truly our King. I pray each of you feel surrounded by the love of Christ as you celebrate this Christmas!
