March Newsletter

It seems as if February came and went in a blink! It was a wet, wet month for us— but we all had a good time giving our friends valentines and celebrating at snack time. Spring break is this month, March 18-21st, we hope you have a great break! Be sure to check out our art display at the Trader Joe’s on 2244. The kids did a great job and are very proud. It is up until the end of March.

Alice Beth Trappe will be back again taking group photos. March 26th the 3’s and 2s will have their group photo taken, and March 27th, the 4’s and 2’s. Please have your child wear their school shirt for this photo.

All the teachers will be doing our yearly evaluations on each child and finishing up their portfolios. Conferences will happen in April and May. Your child’s teacher will be setting up a time with you in the next month or so. We love having this time to talk with each of you. It’s a great time to see how much your child has grown this year!

We will be having a couple staff changes next year, I am sad to say. Becky Shaheen is going to be working side by side with her husband in their business and Jenny Melendez needs full time employment as her children are headed to college. Both are wonderful women whose children came through Faith. We will miss them tremendously. I have hired Jody Conoway in Becky Shaheen’s classroom. She comes to us as a retiring Kindergarten teacher and will bring much to our program! She has taught some of our graduates and loves our methods. I have not hired a new 2s teacher. I am looking for a certified, experience preschool teacher and someone who believes in the power of a play-based education. Being musically talented is highly appreciated as well. If you know anyone who you think would be a good fit, please let me know as I will be interviewing in the next couple months. Word of mouth has always been our best recruiter.

We will be having our annual egg hunt for Easter this Spring. If you would like to donate a dozen plastic eggs(unfilled), that would be great!

Registration for families outside our school is now underway. Our 3s are full, but we have a couple spots in the 2s and 4s. If you know of any families interested, please encourage them to call the school to set up a visit.
