NASELLE - On Monday, June 2, the Valley Bible Preschool held their graduation/moving up evening at the Valley Bible Church. Friends and family came to observe the 15 children (two were absent) receive their diplomas of recognition.
The children sang several of their favorite songs and Bible verses that they had learned during the past school year. Solos were sung by: Emma Colombo and Zoie Norris, and the flag salute was led by Devin Wirkkala. After the certificates were passed out, approximately 60 people enjoyed refreshments and punch provided by Valley Bible Church and the preschool families.
Those who will enter kindergarten next fall are: Emma Colombo, Ella Hale, Jimmy Strange, Trevor Johnson, Kolby Glenn, Nate Hopkins, Riker Johnson, Moses Clark, Daniel Holt, Devin Wirkkala, Jacob Gillette and Hollie Haataia. Those returning to preschool for their second year will be: Zoie Norris, Courtney Paul, Brodie Avalon, Joey Strange and Connor Fithen.
All of the children worked to make the decorations for the occasion. One little guy came up to Mrs. Erickson later and said, "Now teacher, I just have to find a job!" He has plenty of time.
