The Ark has a committee of volunteer parents called Special Events. This group helps organize current events and celebrations as well as bringing in new activities to enrich the program for the children.
Some of our longstanding annual events are:
Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentines Day, and more!
The biggest celebration of the year. All our Older Preschoolers don their caps & gowns and receive their diplomas. All the classes give some kind of performance and a huge dinner is enjoyed by all.
Held in the Fall to give parents the opportunity to meet other parents in their child’s class, meet all the teachers, the members of the Ark Board, ask teacher questions and socialize.
Some new additions are:
Hildegard Schmidt teaches the 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds basic German every Monday morning.
D.A.R.E., Fire Dept. and other community agencies visit.
Happy Feet & Music:
A soccer program offered to Bear Cubs and older classes once a week, on Tuesday mornings for $40 per month. Coach Anthony comes in and does a fantastic job with the kids.
Music is offered to Bear Cubs & older classes once per week on Friday mornings for $15/month. Andy Nazzal is the teacher.
Also we have: Field Trips all year, and Chapel each week.
