The Pandas - June 2017 Update
Welcome back to the Pandas blog where we get to share with you all of the exciting activities that happened during the months of April and May.
At the start of April, we prepared for the celebration of Easter, the resurrection of Jesus. We started with that celebration by making crafts for our bulletin board. On one half of our bulletin board, we cut out and rolled palm branches to remember when the people waved their palm branches and shouted Hosanna as Jesus passed by them. On the second half of our bulletin board, the Pandas cut out spring flowers and made a flower bouquet, which was made into the shape of a cross to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection and the eternal life He brings.
Aside from our bulletin board, we also had our annual Easter Carnival where all the preschoolers were able to sing the Easter songs that they have learned to their family members, listen and share the Easter story, and of course have fun with their parents and loved ones as they went around the school and played games to win prizes. Some of the games were the Wheel of Fortune, Egg Hunt, Egg Fishing, Face Painting, and much more. It was so fun to see all of the happy faces of the children. They all used their own decorated Easter bags to put their prizes and everyone went home happy.
In the month of May, there was also much to celebrate. In the beginning of the month, the Pandas, Giraffes, and Hippos went on a field trip to the San Francisco Zoo where we got to go around together and get up close to a few of the animals that we had talked about throughout the year. And the weather could not have been more perfect! Thank you to all the parents who made that trip possible and safe!
After the excitement from the San Francisco Zoo, of course we cannot forget our mothers! The Pandas were busy making mother’s day cards and a gift for their mothers. On the front of our card was a flower in bloom because moms make us bloom and inside was a special note and drawing for our moms. For our gift, the Pandas carefully colored the design for our flowerpots and placed tissue paper flowers inside that they made.
And last but definitely not the least, we celebrated our Graduation and Promotion Program of the Class of 2017 that was held at Millbrae Bible Church. We could not have been more proud of all the students for all the hard work that they put into our practices to make that special day possible. It was such a joy to see them sing, dance, and perform in front of so many people and do it with such confidence. We are so proud of all of their accomplishments and know that there is a bright future ahead of them. To the graduates, you will be missed!
Till we meet again!
