School is out and summer is in full swing at the Child Care Center! Water play has begun and with that we request parents bring sun screen, a water bottle, towel, swim suit and water play shoes for their child. Check with your child's teacher for water play dates.
Field trips will begin soon for the school age children. The summer activity fee of $100 is now due. This fee makes it possible for us to send your child on fun, engaging field trips and provide adequate staff to supervise the children on each trip. Payment can be made at the front office!
Also this summer, we will be upgrading the big kids' playground. Starting in June we will be installing a new fence, adding an area for 4 square and hopscotch as well as adding a painted road around the inside of the playground for riding tricycles! The excess rain has delayed this project but we are excited to see it get under way!
You may have noticed the new signage along First Street. The city has been wonderful in working with us to limit parking in front of the Center to 30 minutes. This will help alleviate much of the congestion during the school year.

A Message from the Children's Ministry Director!
There's still time to register your children ages 3 years to 5th grade for this Summer's Vacation Bible School! Together we will “POWER UPl” as kids are challenged to “raise their game” at First Christian Church! Kids will learn that God loves them and “God’s power has given us everything we need to live a godly life.”
– 2 Peter 1:3a.
Vacation Bible School is Monday, June 3, through Thursday, June 6, from 6pm until 8pm. Kids will find out that knowing God and trusting in Jesus fills them with the Fruit of the Spirit! They will learn some cool Bible stories, create game-related crafts, play high-energy games, sample tasty snacks and hear some great music. Plus, they’ll meet lots of new friends!
Adult helpers are also needed. More information can be found at www.fccedmond.org/vbs Registration is required and can be completed at www.fccedmond.org/register
