Preschool Weekly News | December 7

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

We went on many adventures here at the preschool this week.  On Tuesday we had the Christmas tree lighting with the rest of King’s Schools.  It was a beautiful day, nice and bright.  It was a little difficult to see the lights on the tree but we enjoyed our time together singing Christmas songs.  On Wednesday we visited the Grandma’s and Grandpa’s over at Assisted Living.  We did a run through of our Christmas program, with each classroom singing their song.  The students did an AMAZING job and brought a lot of joy to the residents.  Our students also got to visit with Santa when they were done singing their songs.

This week in chapel, we continued to practice for our Christmas program that is coming up soon!  Each and every classroom is putting in a lot of work and we look forward to this wonderful event on Tuesday, December 11th @ 5:15pm.
