The Monday-Wednesday Three’s class has been celebrating this month!
First, Layla became a proud BIG SISTER to baby Zachary! What a wonderful gift from God. One day Zachary will be able to follow in his sister’s footsteps when he joins the CLEWS class of 2020!
And on February 8th, the entire CLEWS family hosted a Welcome Home Celebration for TSGT Adam Moore who just returned from his 6-month tour of duty in Kuwait. His proud son Brennan celebrated alongside his classmates, CLEWS graduate sister McKayla, baby brother Reid, mom April, and all CLEWS families and staff to honor the safe return of his dad.
CLEWS hallways were filled with patriotic music and students and families wearing red, white, and blue waving American flags. Each student also presented him with a homemade welcome home card.
Everyone joined in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the Star-Spangled Banner before Adam was thanked for his service and sacrifice. Pastor Rohlfs led a prayer and reflected on April and Adam’s wedding ceremony,which he performed 10 years ago. He even presented them with the cover of their wedding program! April Moore expressed her heartfelt thanks for all, and said that this was “a most memorable experience…never to be forgotten.”
Thanks to the generous donations of the CLEWS families, the Moore family will be able to spend some family time together to honor their collective sacrifice. May God continue to bless all our military families.
In other news, we are very pleased with the turn-out for January’s Registration and Open House. Classes have started to fill but there are still some openings in both the 3 and 4-year-old classes for next year.
