Preschool Weekly News | January 18

Please contact Principal Jessica Scanzon at jscanzon@kingsschools.org if you have any questions.

Our prek classes enjoyed time over at the Elementary school on Friday.  The Elementary students invited our prek students over for a special “Discovery Friday”.  They learned about snow and even created some of their own.  Not only that but each class got to take part in a “snowball” fight.  Our prek team had so much fun and it got a lot of our students excited for Kindergarten.

Our Green room went and visited with the Grandmas and Grandpas this week.  They read some weather stories and made a “rainstorm” using their hands and feet.  To wrap everything up they sang some songs together.

Our very own Purple room led chapel this week.  They did a great job teaching friends about forgiveness.  They created a slide show story of the Prodigal Son.  Each child was photographed acting out the story.  The Purple Room did an amazing job recreating the story and helped make it relatable to our students here at the preschool.

Please look below for important dates coming up.
