Welcome to

Pre K 4

Hi Everyone!

I want to Congratulate our class for coming in 2nd place in our Walk-A-Thon! I am so proud of my students and I want to thank all of our wonderful parents for all of their support on this fundraiser. We could not have done it without you! The children will be treated to a FREE Dress Down Day on Tuesday, May 29, 2018, along with an Ice Cream Treat and a Movie Day.

I would also like to thank you parents for working so hard with your children at home on their lines for Graduation! They are doing a phenomenal job during rehearsal and are very excited for their special day. I will continue to keep the details on Graduation Day posted up on my announcements page, however if you should have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Graduation will take place on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 9:00 AM in the School Hall. Children are to report to school REGULAR time that day. They will report to our classroom as they do each morning. We will process down to the hall promptly at 9:00 AM. The children may wear dress clothes that day. Please do not send children to school that morning with any school bags, lunch boxes, snacks, etc. Please just send them in their dress clothes and ready for the ceremony. Also, if you do not want them to wear a jacket or a sweater on the stage, please take it with you as your child enters the school building that morning. The children will be dismissed directly from the Graduation ceremony.

Again, I Thank you in advance for practicing their lines with them each night. Please continue to do so until the day of Graduation. The children are so excited for their Big Day!
