CCP - Spring Break and important April dates (posted 3/21/19)

Dear CCP Family,

     CHAPEL - This week in Chapel we discussed SALT and LIGHT (Matthew 5:13-20). Light, in particular, resonates with our preschoolers. We sing “This Little Light of Mine” each day as we leave Chapel time. We talk about carrying our “light” into the world - which for a preschooler means sharing God’s love through our acts of kindness at home and at school.

      SPRING BREAK - Our Spring Break is next week, March 25 - 29.  We return to preschool On Monday, April 1.

CARDS FOR A CAUSE - Thanks for your generous participation in our Cards for a Cause fundraiser! Your boxes of cards will arrive in early April. Totals are still rolling in, but I think we have exceeded our goal! More info to come…

DONATION - Please remember another way to support CCP is by your annual tax-deductible donation. At the beginning of the year we suggested $75 per family. If you haven’t been able to make that donation, it is welcome anytime!

      PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR!  It's picture day!  SMILE! Individual and group photos will be April 9 (Whales & TTH classes) & April 10 (Ducks & MW(F) classes) during the preschool morning. Our spring photos are taken outside by Photo Specialties.

SAVE THE DATE! Please come celebrate Christ Church Preschool at the 9:45 worship service on Sunday, April 28. Our Ladybugs, Ducks, and Whales will sing at the beginning of the service with our music teacher, Ms. Rebecca. It is a day to celebrate CCP with the families of Christ Church. ALL are welcome!! I’ll put more information into your cubbies, but for now, please save the date.

      CONSCIOUS DISCIPLINE MOMENT - Heads up!  Here comes a tiny, but IMPORTANT distinction...... It is critical that you ask, "How do you feel?" instead of saying, "How would that make you feel."  Self-regulation requires children to own their feelings.  Attributing the cause of their feelings to outside situations or people by using "make you" language yields blame and derails the process.   ~from Dr. Bailey's Feeling Buddies Curriculum, p. 7

Whether you are traveling or just enjoying some time at home, I hope your spring break is just what you dreamed of!  I wish you safe travels, family fun, and rest!
