Today we are thankful for Norene and Tom Girton, members of Epiphany, who came to teach our Blue & Yellow Classes about Native American life back in the days before the first Thanksgiving. Students tried their hands at planting corn, grinding corn and making pots, felt the beautiful and soft blankets made of animal pelts, played a game & saw dolls that children might have enjoyed at that time, and much more.


There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, November 15th. Current ELNS families, please check your email for more information.


We're looking for a few new Assistant Teachers to work with our amazing kiddos each day. This is a great job for a stay at home mom w/kids in school, an empty nester looking for a new experience, a graduate student w/evening classes & days free, or even a grandparent who loves being around littles. Know someone who might be interested? Have them get in touch with us at [email protected] or 804-282-7506 today!

Throw back to last Tuesday when we had Bike & Trike day for our oldest two classes! They learned about bike safety and had a chance to practice their skills riding in the church parking lot. These kids are going places...fast!

Process art is child-directed art that celebrates creativity & exploration with no specific expectation for what the product may look like. Our Yellow Class artists are learning about bugs & made some fabulous process art creations today. They were given a toilet paper tube & a tray of art supplies & told to create their own unique bug. They were all excited to share their bugs with me when I visited today.
