Preschool Weekly News | Jan 13

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

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.

This month, we are investigating and learning all about weather and seasons.  Our students investigated big words like precipitation, condensation, evaporation, and learned a lot about why we experience different weather patterns.  They even got a chance to take on the role of being a weather reporter and learned more about being a meterologist.

King’s Open Houses – Invite your friends!
As we enter the enrollment season for the 2017-18 school year, we could use your help to spread the word about King’s.  Please invite your friends to attend an upcoming open house. Because so many of our referrals come from King’s families, we offer the Win-Win Program for our domestic students. The Win-Win program is designed to thank King’s families for referring friends and families.  A tuition discount of $500 per new student is available.
