Our CASA Quilters did it again. The final total of quilts delivered to CASA on Thursday, January 26 was 167!!
That brings the total to 1671. The goal of 2000 will certainly be reached before the end of the year. FANTASTIC!
First Methodist School Explores the Rainforest!
To wrap up their unit on the rainforest, the FMS kindergarten class explored the rainforest at the Dallas World Aquarium. Our students were very excited to see what they learned about in class in person!
We have a few spots available (2 year old, 4 year old, & Kinder classes) for the 2016-2017 school year. If you know a family with young children, please tell them about our school so they can learn and grow with us!
