We have so much to be grateful for this season and despite things looking far more different than we could ever imagine, the Lord continues to be faithful through it all. I am so thankful to be surrounded by amazing families, teachers, parents, and children. The teachers and staff are incredible and I am blessed to have an amazing team who work hard and are so dedicated to their craft. It is because of them that our school is thriving! Our Faith community is remarkable and I want to thank Sandy Hartsfield, Pastor Brad, Pastor Trinity, Ginny Dailey and our Preschool Board, Jerome & Ojay, Randy and the rest of the church staff for their support. I appreciate each and every one of you!
During this season it’s important to teach your child to have an attitude of gratitude. Gratitude is believed to be one of the healthiest emotions a person can practice! Expressing thanks can also increase happiness. So, how do we teach this to young children? It can be a simple ritual you add to your everyday routines. Try taking turns at dinner sharing one happy thing about your day. At bedtime, say three things you appreciate about each other. While driving to school take turns talking about the things you love. When you pick your child up from school ask him or her what was one nice thing they did for someone that day. Gratitude allows us to celebrate the present, dispel negative emotions, build more resilience and cultivate a higher sense of self-worth. It also helps us cultivate a heart of worship towards God and sets an example of how gracious our Heavenly Father is to us.
Thank you for “Going Pink” during October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Your support was tremendous. This month we have an opportunity to support our Preschool with our Lucky Goat Coffee Fundraiser starting November 16th. It’s an easy gift you can check off your list for family, friends, coworkers, or your mailman to show gratitude just in time for the Christmas holiday.
Thank you again for your love and support. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for each and every one of you! YOU make Faith Preschool a great place to be!
