We want to say goodbye and wish safe travels to to Evelyn and Quentin and their families who will be moving out of the state this summer. Happy Summer to all!
We have been so blessed by Pastor Janessa and the time she has shared with our preschoolers. Today she shared the story “Wonderfully Made”, by Joyce Meyer. The children enjoyed hearing how Hayley the Hippo discovered that “God gives us all unique gifts. We just have to discover what they are.” Today the children presented Pastor Janessa with several bouquets of flowers as we thanked her and wished her well as she leaves Tucson to become the lead pastor of a Phoenix church.
As a parent, you have the power to boost your children’s learning potential simply by making books
an integral part of their lives. Children who are read to are more likely to do well in all facets of education.
St. Paul’s Preschool values the gift of reading and we make sure it is included in each preschool day.
The magic of a book is the focus of our Pre-K Monday Soaring class. The children experience all aspects of a story.
Today in Soaring, Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Hoffsmith shared the book, Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau. The children embraced the story and showed their acting skills.
Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau
illustrated by David Roberts
This is the tale of a lonely hat maker who matches customers to the perfect hat but lacks her own perfect match in life. Once a year, on her birthday, Madame Chapeau ventures out in her favorite bonnet to dinner. This time, a crow snatches her hat and flies away. Mon dieu! As she chases the crow through the streets of Paris, a baker, a policeman, a cowboy, and others offer her their own hats to wear. None of them are quite right, though, until one special little girl offers her a hat “knitted with love and [her] best birthday wish.”
A delightful and very stylish story about love, community, and friendship, with some fancy hats thrown in for good measure.

Let us share with you what makes St. Paul’s so special, as we celebrate 50 years as one of the best preschools in Tucson.
To a young child, every day can be a discovery of something new. Preschoolers love to explore the world around them. Simple science activities help young children enhance this natural curiosity.
Science exploration in the classroom provides young children the opportunity to…
- Build self-confidence
- Engage in “hands on” experiences
- Increase observation skills
- Receive opportunities to use tools, equipment and familiar materials
- Problem solve
- Develop sensory, physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and social attributes
- Develop language through increased vocabulary as they ask and answer questions
- Just have fun
Science activities are incorporated into many of the learning themes throughout our preschool program. A small sampling includes mixing colors, making slime, learning the difference between salt and fresh water and its effect on floating, erupting volcanoes and discovering the wonder of dry ice.
Merry Christmas to our preschool families
