Preschool Weekly News | Jan 6

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

Welcome Back!  We hope every family had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s! We saw a lot of excited faces as students came back to school to see their friends and teachers. Our classrooms are filled with learning and joy as we explore the weather, which is very cold but fun filled with snow and ice! Check in with your child’s teachers about classroom activities, ways to volunteer and viewing fun classroom activities on Facebook.

King’s Preschool’s office was remodeled over our Christmas break! We are excited and thankful that it will be a very usable and inviting space. Thank you for your patience as our team finishes the project this week. Stop in to see us anytime!

Please remember to dress your children for the weather every day. We will go outside every day as a critical part of each child’s health and development! Remember gloves and hats, also. We do want to go outside for fresh air and natural light daily.
