Heaven Sent January Happenings
From the Director:
Welcome to a new year! We hope that your holidays were happy and safe and that the new year will bring God's blessings to all of you.
Just think what wonderful things will be happening in the coming year. Some of your children will be starting kindergarten (real school!) before the year is out. Some of you will be sending your "babies" to us to begin their very first classroom experiences. Some of you will be adding to your family as new babies arrive. A new year always brings some sort of change…change that may be wanted or unwanted. I encourage all of us (including myself) to focus not only on these anticipated changes, but to the One who never changes. It is when we focus on God that we will find the most contented peace and joy through the changes that may be going on in our lives.
As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season leave us, we look forward to a quiet, more relaxed month. January finds us getting back into the routine of normal classroom activities as we pick up letters, numbers and resume work on kindergarten readiness skills again for our kindergarten bound angels.

WHY HEAVEN SENT?
Heaven Sent offers our students a developmental preschool curriculum in a loving environment and Christian nursery school. We believe that all children are unique and wonderful creations of God, and need to be treated with dignity, love, and respect.
Heaven Sent does everything with our school’s motto in mind: “Childhood should be a journey, not a race”.

SPECIAL DAYS AT HEAVEN SENT
Heaven Sent students enjoy a variety of special days throughout the year. From holiday celebrations to color-themed days, a mid-winter beach day and comfy and cozy “slumber party” day we enjoy appealing to the creativity and imagination of our angels. Other special days throughout the year include Silly Sock Day, Wild ‘n Wacky Wednesday, Teddy Bear Day, My Favorite Thing Day, and Box Car day.
CREATIVE FAMILY FUN!
Heaven Sent angels and their families celebrate family fun and creativity with our Creative Family Fun experience. Several times throughout the school year, children and their families work together to fashion an art project at home that the children then bring in to show their classmates. Some of the Creative Family Fun activities have included Paper Cup Critters, "Disguise a Turkey to save it at Thanksgiving!", Decorate a Christmas tree, "mini-me" and an "All About Me" poster.
PARENT INVOLVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Our angels are so proud when their family members can visit our classrooms. We offer a variety of opportunities for parents, grandparents, and/or older siblings to be part of the fun! Each year, parents can sign up for our Stay and Play program where they take part in the free play part of our morning, our Share a Story (or Two!) opportunity where they read to their child’s class, and our Holiday Helpers, where they help out with our holiday celebrations!
