St. John’s Lutheran School hosts an informal and free, learning group, called SonBEAMS for 2 and 3 year olds twice a year. We will hold a six week session beginning on January 23. We meet on Wednesday mornings. We begin each session at 8:30 with some play time in the gym. At 8:45 the children and parents/caregivers move into the 4 & 5 year old kindergarten classroom for a brief Bible lesson, some singing, and some activities with shapes, colors, and numbers. The children, along with the 4 year olds, move back to the gym after this for some motor skill activities and then make some sort of project. We are usually done by 9:45. The purpose of this playgroup is to provide some social time, give the little ones a very brief glimpse into a school setting, and let them hear about their Savior. Parents have asked me, “What if my child isn’t ready to sit and listen to a Bible lesson?” This usually only lasts about 3 minutes, and some children aren’t ready to sit until they are around 3 ½ years old. This is okay! That’s what it’s all about – simply exposing the children to other children and a school setting. It is encouraged, but not necessary, to be able to attend each class. SonBEAMS is free to attend and siblings are welcome. Drop-ins are welcome; however, for planning purposes, pre-registration is appreciated. If you’d like more information, have any questions, or would like to register, please call school at (920) 928-3296 and ask for me. You may register for the fall session on our website under the school tab, also.
