Happy New Year!
The Holidays are such a great time here. We were very busy celebrating Christmas and the New Year The Preschoolers had a great time learning all about the birth of Jesus and making lots of Christmas crafts.
Our Christmas Program is such a heart warming time, everyone coming together to celebrate their children and Christmas. We had our largest turn out ever of about 350 people (250 from North Liberty and 100 from Coralville). We are blessed to have such wonderful families in our program. The Preschoolers entertained us with their songs. The School-agers sang a few songs and did a great job playing the Chime Bars. A special thank you to Lynn Jansen for volunteering her time throughout the year to teach the children chime bars. They all did a wonderful job and look forward to their practices every week. A special thank you to Dale Ingle for running our music and sound for the night. It was a great night and all the children did a wonderful job.
We also had a great turn out for our Parent’s Night Out. We had over 100 children here that night from both centers. It was so much fun having both centers together, playing and meeting everyone. The children enjoyed playing with their friends, eating pizza, and watching a movie.
Our Santa’s Workshop was a big hit. We had a large turn out for this as well. We had a lot of families from both centers come in and participate in the crafts and activities we had planned. Santa Claus was a hit too. The kids loved seeing him and taking pictures. It was such a great time with a lot of our families.
The School-agers were excited for their Christmas Break. They kept busy making crafts, swimming and playing outside.
As we move into January the Preschoolers will be learning about heroes of the Old Testament, colors, shapes, opposites outer space, winter and arctic animals, families and much more. Also in January they will be taking a field trip to the Synergy Gymnastics.
The School Agers will be keeping busy with some fun crafts, games and trying to get outside.
We would like to wish you all a very blessed new year and thank you all for your continued support!!!
