April 2018 Newsletter

Dear CBK families,

April is here! It just doesn’t really seem possible that we only have six weeks of school left! I wanted to let you know that a new responsibility of Florida Highway Patrol Troopers is for troopers to select a private or public school to serve. Trooper Wesley Dixon has chosen to serve at CBK! He will volunteer at our preschool by reading books, participating in the classrooms and building relationships with the children. His goal is to help children feel safe and comfortable around him as well as keeping our preschool safe. Please welcome him when you see him!

Matthew 26:26-29, Luke 23:44-49, Matthew 28:1-7

Jesus had a special meal with His disciples. He was getting ready to leave but promised to come back. Jesus died on a cross and His friends are very sad. After three days in a tomb, an angel rolled the stone away and Jesus came back, just like He said He would. Hallelujah! HE HAS RISEN!

I hope you all had a most blessed Easter and celebrate the resurrection of our great Lord and King Jesus!

On Friday, April 27, please come to the Broom Tree Café and share a donut or a muffin with your child, walk them to their classroom, pick up your special handmade gift and kiss them goodbye!

I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8

With MUCH love,

About CBK


Celebration Baptist Kinderschool uses "WEE Learn" which stands for Weekday Early Education. This Christian material uses preschool centers to promote the child's development in all areas. The purpose of this guide is to provide a framework on which teachers can build an early childhood program that allows children to grow and develop as Jesus did... "Jesus grew in wisdom and stature; and in favor with God and man." (Luke 2:52) We use an additional curriculum called ABC Jesus Loves me. Parents and teachers may also join their page on Facebook as well as utilize their webpage for additional resources. The curriculum for the Kindergarten program is multi-faceted. The ABeka curriculum is used to teach Reading, Phonics, Social Studies, Handwriting, and Science. The math curriculum we use is Saxon Math. A computer lab with age appropriate computer software also enhances the curriculum.

Chapel Time

Chapel Time is provided for the four and five year olds and is located in the Broom Tree Cafe on Mondays with our Children's Pastor Tommy Hendricks. We learn Bible stories that relate to the monthly themes being taught in each classroom as well as our Sunday school curriculum. We sing praise songs while "signing' them and we learn to pray together. This is a special time for everyone. Parents are always welcome to join us at 12:10 in the Broom Tree Café.

Music, Movement, and Media

Every week the three, four and five year olds will have Special Area. This is where the children will participate in extracurricular activities like Bible, Art and Science, Music and Movement, Physical Education and Library/Media. Music is a great teaching tool for children. All the classes will use music as a learning tool. During the Special Area time, the teacher will be using instruments, CDs and other fun ways to appreciate music. For all other ages, music time will be incorporated into their classroom schedule. Each class will use movement as a gross motor learning tool. Also during Special Area, the teacher will use activities where the children can develop an awareness of their bodies, physical skills and creativity. The activities are simple and can be done in a spirit of enjoyment.

Required Health Forms

  • Current Immunization Form- Request this by phone from your pediatrician; they will inform you if you need an appointment. We will need an updated Blue Card immunization form.
  • Current Student Health Form (Yellow Sheet)- Request this by phone from your pediatrician; they will inform you if you need an appointment. The state has recently updated this form and there is a parent section on the back that must be completed as well as signed a parent.

Before School Care

We offer Before School Care from 8:00-9:00 am in the event that parents needs to drop off their child earlier than 9:00 in the morning. We are unable to accept drop-ins at any time.

Stay & Play

We offer an extended day program from 1:00-2:30 called "Stay & Play!" It will be available for ALL ages! If you are interested in having your child "Stay & Play," sign-up is a one-time event for the school year. Please see the front office if you need to modify. We do offer a drop-in opportunity since we have staff available in the afternoons.

It is our prayer that your child will grow in many ways through our program. God helps us to grow mentally, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. In Luke 2:52 it says “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”

We look forward to connecting with all of you as we work together to foster the best year for your child! Our heart’s desire is to love you and your family as Christ loves you! Thank you for giving us the wonderful privilege of serving you and your precious family!!!!

‘We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.’ I Thessalonians 2:8
