Sports-a-thon sparks preschool passion

Dozens of preschoolers and their families stopped by Peace Lutheran Church Preschool for its annual Sports-a-thon and open house event March 13.

Little ones tried their hands at a variety of indoor games, playfully competing and happily earning points to take home a medal.

“This is always so much fun. The parent PTO board puts it on similar to track and field events the elementary schools have. The kids love it, and the parents, too,” said Lisa Nelson, preschool director, while behind her, kids played at bean bag toss, basketball shoot, soccer kick, Hula Hoop, long jump and mini golf.

They could also get faces painted and arms tattooed during the Friday evening event.

The open house portion of the evening allowed parents and families to visit the preschool classrooms, chat with teachers and even enroll for the following school year.

Peace Lutheran Church and Preschool is located at 20 Northdale Blvd. NW, Coon Rapids.
