April 28/29 Parent Note for Sprouts
Dear Sprouts Parent,
We wrap up our BIG NEWS theme learning about how to give the best gift, just as Peter and John did. Our story focus is telling others about Jesus is the best gift I can give. Nothing is as precious and life-changing as the gift of Jesus. WE want our preschoolers to know that telling others about God’s Son is like giving a gift to everyone.
We need your help with the indoor playground. According to our rules, NO food or drink is allowed in the playground. Our security staff finds themselves reminding us over and over of this rule and it seems we don't listen as well as we should be. This includes parents and children and helps keep the playground clean. Please remind your kids and friends of this rule! Thanks for your cooperation.
I want to give a shout out to our parents of babies! Did you know there is a Parent Cue just for you? It is located on the Parent page of the Kids’ Time website. It gives simple things you can say and do with your baby. You may wonder what the benefit might be. There are two that come to my mind. First, it gets you into the habit of talking about God to your child. Second, your child will grow up hearing that God loves them, God made them and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
If you have attended the 11 am service, you may have noticed how quickly our 4/5-year-old classroom has been filling. This happens every year in the Spring right before we promote rising Kindergarteners. Please know that the curriculum/activities we do are identical in the 3-year-old class as the 4/5 class.
Are you ready for 2018 Food Fight? May 4, 5 & 6, 2018 at the Dulles Expo Center. Click here for all the details and how you can be involved. Kids 5-years old and up can help pack meals. There we be NO WEEKEND SERVICES during Food Fight.
Are you looking for a way to be more involved at New Hope? Volunteering is one of the best ways to become involved. We are in need of volunteers throughout Kids’ Time (birth-5th grade) especially with the summer coming up. Can you invest a few hours a month in our children? We invite you to shadow a classroom and will give you all the training you need to be successful. The best way to connect is by emailing Jessica @ Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org. She will get you plugged into the schedule. We have a great team and want you to become a part of it!
I hope to see you over the weekend!
