It’s May! That means that the flowers are in full bloom, leaves are growing on the trees and all of God’s glory is rising all around us. It is a time for us to take those precious moments that we are given to “stop and smell the roses”—literally and figuratively!
May also marks the last month of school at CPNS. In May, the halls are usually filled with talk of spring, the sound of children heading outside for play time and nature walks and, toward the end of the month, all of the fun summer plans our families have been making since the cold winter months. Of course, this year is different. Our students and teachers both long to be in the classrooms, but we are finding our end-of-year blessings and joys in other ways. We have been given the gift of more time at home with our children, more time to notice the wonders unfolding before our eyes and time to see and appreciate that we are safe, taken care of and loved.
We are so happy to be able to continue education and student interaction through Seesaw, Epic and now, Zoom classes! Being able to see our students has put joy and hope in our hearts. The students and teachers miss school so much and look forward to a time when we can fill those hallways with joyful noise again!
We will get through this together. Please know that CPNS is here to support you as a family. Teachers are happy to provide help and guidance to aid you in navigating this new way of learning and living. We are living the same reality and support you and thank you for all that you do!
Happy TEACHER APPRECIATION week to all of our amazing CPNS teachers! We appreciate all you do each and every day…not just in May!
We received notification that the Cranbury Presbyterian Nursery School has achieved a new five-year term of accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for earning the mark of quality. The accreditation decision is based on the adjusted score and CPNS had scores of 100+ in all ten standards. These standards include; relationships, curriculum, teaching, assessment of child progress, health, teachers, families, community relationships, physical environment, and leadership and management. We are blessed to continue to provide children and families of our church and community with the developmentally appropriate academics they deserve, in a Christian environment .
