Prek 3 ( Jennifer Polesuk )
Parents: Please remember to send back your child’s empty folder each day. This way we can send home all of the hard work they do at school! Also I am trying to help the children learn some responsibility by taking out their folders in the morning and placing them on the yellow table in the classroom. Please encourage your child to do this each morning when you bring them to school. Thank you!
Also Wednesday is our field trip to Sun High Orchard. Looking forward to a fun morning!!
