CLASSROOM SPOTLIGHT

Miss Ebony’s 5-Day 3’s

This week we discussed the importance of Easter. We now know that Jesus loved us so much that he layed down his life so that we could be saved. He rose again after three days ,he is ALIVE! We sang praises through the halls singing Hosanna, Hosanna. We groomed our grass heads and even ate dirt, which we made as a class! We truly enjoyed our week, but most of all we enjoyed learning about Christ. Happy Easter!
