April 18th, 2014

It was an Easter celebration that lasted the whole week at Sacred Heart Preschool!  On Monday, we visited Grossmont Gardens Retirement Community where they had arranged for an Easter bunny visit, a balloon artist (who specialized in swords), cookie decorating, and an Easter egg hunt.

Did I mention there were balloon swords?

The egg hunt was beautifully put together with many of the residents watching and helping our students collect the eggs.  I adore Grossmont Gardens and greatly appreciate how far above and beyond the activities director goes for us.

Back in class, we really focused on the significance of the first Easter.  In preschool, emphasis is placed mostly on Jesus' teachings and God's love for us when He sent His only Son.  As the children get older, their education will expand to the details surrounding the crucifixion and Stations of the Cross.

We also discussed the concept of spring and life beginning anew as springtime baby animals are born and hatched.  Then, we made our baby chicks.

On Thursday, we prepared our Easter bags for the big hunt at school.

Then the whole preschool participated in an Easter egg hunt.  The Easter bunny hid my students' eggs in the shark tank.

Miss Gabriella's eggs were hidden in the lunch courtyard.

Miss Kim's were hidden in her classroom...

...and Ms. Rebecca's were hidden in her patio.

Then, the whole school, along with many of our family members, participated in a huge feast!

Notice a bluish cast of light in some of the photos?  San Diego's storm of 2014 damaged our 20-year-old awning irreparably.  On the day of our egg hunt and feast, it was replaced with a brand new one!

Just making sure our school remains super awesome.
