Good morning,

What a beautiful day!  The weather has been so nice this week so I hope your family has been able to enjoy it.  The kids are having a great time at recess with the weather being as nice as it is.  Just a reminder to check and make sure that the extra set of clothes you send each day in your child’s backpack are changed out for the season and that you are sending an extra set each day.  Thank you!

Our annual Field Day is coming up on May 9th & 10th and we need many parent volunteers to make this event run smoothly. I invite any anyone that is interested in helping out with this fun day of events to attend an informational meeting tomorrow Thursday, April 19th at 1:15pm in Room 128. The purpose of this event is to form a committee of persons to help plan the stations and the amount of volunteers needed for each and exactly what those stations will be. This is a very fun day for the children and we appreciate all the wonderful parents that help with the planning to make it run so smoothly. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.

The ground breaking ceremony for the Kathleen Baskin Ball Memorial Garden will take place this Sunday, April 22nd immediately following the 11am service. Construction will begin next week on the garden which will be constructed in the courtyard area that many of our families love to play on in the afternoons after school. Please keep children away from this area during the construction process. It will be so beautiful once it is finished.

Vacation Bible School for preschoolers

Suncreek’s Vacation Bible School theme is Sky: Everything is Possible with God! Preschool children of VBS volunteers who work that week are invited to enroll in our VBS preschool program.

Consider volunteering and find out what happens when the sky is the limit and everything is possible with God!

Next week is Family chapel and it will be our last family chapel for the year as May is such a busy month.  I invite you to come and share the story of Noah with us.

The children did a great job today with our bad weather drill.  They all are so well prepared and knew exactly what we do if the sirens were to go off and we need to take cover. Good job!
