On June 6 and 7, our Open Arms Preschool staff hosted a marvelous end of year celebration! The fellowship hall was full both mornings as families and friends gathered to watch their beloved child sing multiple songs and honor this important milestone in their student’s lives. Misa, our director, said to the parents, “When your child first came to the school we helped them with separation anxiety. Now at the end of the year, our teachers are experiencing separation anxiety!” The staff of Open Arms Preschool is of the highest caliber. We are so grateful for: Misa, Vicky, Sally, Mervat and Isabel who have offered a professional, high-spirited, joyful, creative and safe program for our students all year!!

A summer program will begin in a couple of weeks and go through July. We are expanding into an afternoon class for the first time in the Fall! God is abundantly blessing this holy and powerful ministry!!
