A Word from Deacon Amy

Although preschool ended three weeks ago, the sounds of children laughing and playing have filled our hallways and playgrounds once again. Our amazing teachers and their fantastic teen helpers have put on two exciting day camp programs for our students.

Last week’s theme was Fairy-tales! Kids had a wonderful time hearing some of their favorite stories while playing with their friends and creating magical craft projects. Their candy cottages turned out especially delightful!

Their fairy-tale activities for the week included a reenactment of the three little pigs story, going for carriage rides (wagons pulled by teens), and making s’mores.

It’s been wonderful to be able to utilize our beautiful outdoor spaces. We have been especially thankful for the cooperative weather.

This week’s camp has been all about Superheroes! Kids learned about the kindness of super heroes while making a friendship snack mix to share.

 They went through intensive super hero training in the meadow, and tested their skills.

Each hero got to design and create their own shields, too. A custom mask and some face paint completed the super hero ensemble and made for some fantastic photos in front of our cityscape backdrop. These heroes are ready to save the day, whatever challenges may come their way!

Thursday will be the final day of adventures for these intrepid campers! They’ll finish the week with a water fun day, splashing and playing in the grass. We are so thankful for our teachers who put so much thought and creativity into planning these fun activities. We also offer a huge thanks to our teen helpers who have been a ton of fun this week!

Thanks, campers, for bringing so much joy to our TLC campus once again!

With love and gratitude,
Deacon Amy
