On Monday, April 16 and Tuesday, April 17, the preschoolers celebrated their dads with a special father’s day tribute. Each class had planned activities for their dads. Some recited poems, shared what they know about their dads, read books, or did a craft together. Regardless of activity, a good time was had by all. Thank you to all the dads and grandpas that were able to attend!

Our words are a lot like toothpaste. Once they come out of our mouths, they can't be put back in, just as toothpaste can't be put back into the tube.
In chapel today we learned that the Bible has a lot to say about our words. We can use them to tear others down or we can use them to build others up.
To illustrate this point Ms. Melissa gave two children a tube of toothpaste and asked them to squeeze it out. Once most of the toothpaste was squeezed out she asked them to put the toothpaste back into the tube. The children tried to suck it back up into the tube, but that didn't work. Instead more came out. She gave them toothpicks to scoop it back in which worked, but was very messy and was taking a long time. Finally they gave up.
In Ephesians 4:32 God asks us to "be kind to one another." One of the ways that we can show kindness to others is by being careful with our words, because once they are out of our mouths, we can't take them back. To close chapel we prayed and asked God to help us to be kind to one another with our words.
And the next time we brush our teeth we will be reminded of this important lesson.
