Preschool Weekly News | March 1

Please contact Principal Jessica Scanzon at [email protected] if you have any questions.

We were all so excited to have our first full week in February!  We had an eventful week.  Many classrooms celebrated Dr. Seuss, they read fun stories and created wacky art projects.  There was also a lot of green eggs and ham taste testing.  We continue to talk to many people in our community about the jobs they have and how they help us day to day.  We are looking forward to our multicultural unit that is coming up in the month of March.  Be on the lookout for ways that you can volunteer and share about your family!

We had a special guest present in Chapel on Wednesday.  Helen has two students here at the preschool and she spoke about the clinic that she is building in Ethiopia.

Please look below for important dates coming up.
