Preschool Weekly News | February 1

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

This is our last week focusing on weather and seasons in the classroom.  The students have been talking a lot about different seasons and all the different types of weather.  I know that many are hoping for snow!  We are so excited to begin our next unit on friendship and community.  I think there will be some wonderful volunteer opportunities available as well.  If you think you would like to volunteer please look below to see the steps on how to complete this process.

SUA led chapel this week.  Some of the students from SUA taught the preschoolers songs using ASL.  They also shared a Bible verse and prayed together.  It was so wonderful to see how excited our students were to learn from these delightful “teachers”.

Please look below for important dates coming up.
