Winter Wednesdays for 4-7*-year-old students

Each day will be centered around a theme and will include a story, craft, games, gym time, and other age-appropriate activities to encourage engaging and interactive learning experiences. This year we will be reading books from the Wemmick series by Max Lucado and finding Biblical parallels to his stories. By focusing on our value in Christ students will grow in faith and confidence.  A non-sugary snack will be provided.
