Super Spring Fest!

Despite a damp, chilly and rainy day, we celebrated Earth Day and Arbor Day at our Spring Fest in a big way!  Children enjoyed so many wonderful earth day activities that focused on gardening, composting, recycling and how that relates to living a Godly life.  We finished out the day by teaming up to plant a new cherry tree at our playground area and then had lunch inside on picnic blankets.  A special thanks to Arlene Carpenter and Elise Graybill from Rorher Seeds in Smoketown, PA for the amazing activities they added to our Spring Fest.  We are blown away by their generosity and loved for our God!

Road Rally ….Hooray!

Each year, as the spring arrives, we celebrate the great outdoors with our annual Road Rally for each class.  This year, sunshine filled the skies and joy filled our hearts as we road our bikes and favorite riding toys around our “race tracks”.  Thanks to many parents who came to help, we had a wonderful time riding laps, eating yummy snacks, filling up with gas, sipping drinks and earning streamers to our bikes and helmets!  A sure highlight of the year!

Eastland Alpacas, Here we Come!

During our Animal Unit, we were lucky enough to visit the Eastland Alpaca Farm in Mt. Joy!  What a wonderful field trip to learn about, pet, feed and interact with these furry creatures!  As you can see they are very tame and quite lovable!                                                                                                                                                       Alpaca Farm (16) (640x480) Alpaca Farm (5) (480x640) DSC01681 (640x480) DSC01680 (640x480) Alpaca Farm (11) (480x640) Alpaca Farm (10) (480x640)
