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!
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!
Thanks to the Manheim Township Fire Department, our students got to learn all about these huge fire trucks, climb inside and watch a real fire fighter get dressed in all his gear! We learned about calling 911 in an emergency, how to set e our home if it were on fire! Thanks to all the fire fighters who came out to help from Neffsville Fire Station!
We were blessed with a beautiful but chilly day to welcome many families to our Open House on Saturday, Feb. 27. It was great to see so many NCP families come and show off their school to friends and extended family members. It was also wonderful to meet so many new parents and children who came to see why NCP is such a special place! We were so thrilled to give tours, answer questions, provide snacks, crafts and share our great preschool with so many. Matt Heywood’s balloon creations were spectacular and a real hit too!
