Ms. Monica's Message
“Love, Love … Love, Love, Love” in the words of Mr. Ben Stiller, from the Heartbreak Kid …
It is the month for love! To give and receive. And boy did Ben Stiller’s character struggle to say, those 3 very powerful words, “I love you”. Those words are very difficult for some, while others overuse and lose the meaning of it in the mundaneness of life. When it comes to the love of a partner, a parent, a child, we get so busy with life; we forget to be in the moment and recognize the small gestures people do to show their love.
Go that extra mile this month and share God’s love, not just with your loved ones, but your neighbor too. Simple gestures of thoughtfulness for your coworker, your mail carrier, your favorite coffee barista … that retail worker who just had an upset customer …. someone visibly having a tough day. Let God’s love flow through you and share a genuine warm smile of encouragement and support.
Coincidentally, Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine’s Day this year. It’s a special time to reflect on how you can better yourself and your relationship with God. What better way to grow your bond with God than to share his love. “Faith works through love” Galatians 6:5.
It’s a short month but we have lots of fun things to offer!
This month our curriculum will focus on: The Letters U, L and F; Numbers 16-18; The Colors Pink and Silver; And the Shape of a Heart. Please see your teacher for specific focuses on curriculum.
Our Chapel themes will be on the following stories: Jesus Stops a Storm, Jesus Teaches the Disciples to Pray, Jesus Heals Ten Sick Men, and Jesus Rides into Jerusalem.
Our weekly themes will include: Bears, Valentine’s, Transportation, and a whole week to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
Each class has very special activities planned for Valentine’s Day, Dr. Seuss Week and other activities throughout the month. Please make sure to continue checking in with your child’s teacher and taking home paperwork to stay on top of all the fun all year long!
We will have 2 special dress up days this month. Wednesday, February 14th, dress in pinks, reds and silver! On Wednesday, February 28th, dress wacky to honor Dr. Seuss’ book, Wacky Wednesday. This means, shirts backwards and/or inside out, mismatched socks, silly hair dos. Whatever is silly, or wacky, to you and your child!
If you haven’t done so already, make sure to turn in the Electronic Authorization form for our new Procare Tuition System. By completing Section B, it will be just like submitting your monthly checks, without having to remember to write a check each month and at no cost to you! It will be the last check you’ll have to write! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
We’re bringing back Wubba Wubba Night on Friday, February 16th. Take this opportunity for some parent time … a night out, a restful time in, maybe get your taxes done, all with the comfort of your children being with your trusted teachers and having fun with their friends. You can sign up with Ms. Monica or Mr. Jacob.
Mark your Calendars! We’re having another Children’s Church Day on Sunday, February 25th at 9am! We had a wonderful turn out for our last Children’s Church Day in October. The Wonder Window children practice their chapel songs weekly. I can’t tell you how much wonderful feedback I received from LCoP and Wonder Window parents about how special it was to hear the children singing their praises! Everyone is invited to join us on the 25th for this very special event!
Thoughts, hugs and prayers,
Monica Gutierrez, Director

Happy May parents and families. Wow, time has flown. I can’t believe it’s already the end of the year. The 2’s class is finishing up our letters and numbers. We want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of our Mother’s and Grandmothers. I want to invite all of our families to our Spring and Graduation Program on Sunday, May 20th at 5pm. The 2’s class has been busy practicing our songs for the Spring Program. We want to wish Ms. Rachel a very Happy Birthday on May 11th. The 2’s class will be having our end of the year Ice Cream Party on Friday June, 1st. Please keep an eye out for the sign-up sheet.

Wow! It’s hard to believe that our school year is coming to an end. It’s been such an awesome year seeing these little ones grow and learn so much. Thank you, parents for having them in my class and for all of your help throughout the year. Don’t forget our Spring and Graduation Program! Hope to see you all there and see your children perform, May 20th at 5pm. Wishing all the Moms a Happy Mother’s Day! Have a joyful and blessed day!
Miss Joyce's Class
Is it really May? Hard to believe that the school year is quickly coming to an end! Thank you for a great year at Wonder Window! I am blessed through your children each day. I will miss them but am excited for what God has planned for them as they move on to Kindergarten and continue to grow!
We will spend our last few weeks getting ready for our graduation program, reviewing what we have learned this year and having a few end-of-the-year special days along the way! June 4 is our last day together. We will have an outdoor fun day with pizza & ice cream for lunch!
Happy Mother’s Day to all our moms! Keep up the good work and enjoy your special day. Take some time this summer with your child to review what they have learned to build their confidence for next school year!
God bless you and keep you all! Have a blessed summer!
Mr. Jacob's Class
I can’t believe it’s already the end of the year. Our classroom memories will last a lifetime. Just a couple of reminders. Our Spring and Graduation Program will be held on May 20th. We will also be having an end of the year party so be on the look out for that. We also have a couple of birthdays this month as well. We would like to wish Alexis Garrett and Amarissa Lopez a very Happy Birthday. May you all have a blessed and safe summer. Hope to see you all next year!
