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 February! It is the month of love. The 2’s class will be busy with lots of crafts with hearts this month. We will be talking about the greatest love there is. How Jesus loves each of us and how to love others. “Let everything you do be done in love” 1 Corinthians 16:14. We will have our Valentine’s party on February 14th at 9:30a.m. Our party list was put up this week, if you could sign-up to bring an item that would be great. I will also be sending out our class list of names for Valentine’s cards. I pray God blesses every family and you see God’s love for you.

Miss Joyce's Class
We love because God first loved us! (1 John 4:19) The month of February is a perfect month to focus on God’s love for us and to show that love to others. We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on the 14th. You’re invited to join us! There will be a sign-up sheet in the classroom for supplies and goodies. I will also be sending home a class list so that you can help your child fill out their valentines. We will have a couple other special days this month – A teddy bear picnic and parade and a special pajama day with pancake breakfast made by the students. Look for details to come home about these special days! By the end of the month we will be close to the end of reviewing all our letters and their sounds. We’ve already been spending time building words with the short vowels! In math we will continue to work with numbers up to 20. We get to celebrate again this month as Conner turns 5 on the 13th! Happy Birthday! God bless you and keep you all!

God Bless you all
