Preschool Weekly News | February 8

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

Our students hoped for snow and boy did we get it!  The students were delighted to still have snow on the playground when they came back to school after two snow days.  Classes have started talking about friendship and community this week. We did not host chapel this week due to shortened hours. Please look below for important dates coming up.
