The First Academy Preschool Newsletter, Week of March 10

Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:

A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of the Extended Educational Programs
In a few days my daughter, Elle, is going to turn one. As I reflect on the blessings of her first year, I think about all of you- TCS, The First Hope, and Preschool parents. We have all been inducted into the ‘parent club’ and are forever bonded by this connection. What a joy to know that we are all on this journey together, not only with God at the helm, but with the comfort of knowing we are not alone. We can reach out to one another for love, support, and celebrations as parents. I encourage you to take time to celebrate one another and the amazing work you are doing as parents. So grateful for all of you!
Sarah Donovan
