February Memory Verse
"Be kind to one another." -Ephesians 4:32
Welcome to our Pre-K Class
We are so excited to begin our new OCSI Early Childhood (PreK) program for this year. We will combine the three and four year olds into one classroom so they can all engage in daily literacy, enjoy learning centers, and grow in their understanding of our various themed projects. Exploration projects will include Going to School, Caring for Animals, Celebrations, Our Neighborhood, Growing Plants, and Our Five Senses. Our new curriculum will also incorporate Project-Based Learning that promotes both academic and social growth, so that we can better meet your children's needs and keep them challenged. We look forward to a great year of learning and growing together.

This week we have been investigating the theme of community. Some of our parents came in on Thursday morning and shared their careers with our students. The students also blessed each other with Valentine treats and cards. We teachers were blessed as well. Thank you all so much for you love and kindness!
