I Want to be a Doctor!

Prek 4 ( Jennifer Quartucci )

The children have very busy getting ready for Mother’s Day!  The things they told us about all of you were the sweetest things, as you will see.

Hope that all of you had an amazing Mother’s Day, you deserve it.

Prek 2 ( Nellie Westpy) 
We are excited to celebrate with our moms on Monday, May 15 at 10:45 AM for our brunch! If you have not signed up already please make sure you email The school or send a message on brightwheel as we have to have a headcount for food and beverages.
Regarding our lesson plans we will no longer be sending out a weekly breakdown since the last month of school is strictly review for this age group. Our goal is that every child in our class is able to identify the basic shapes, colors, numbers one through five as well as count one through 10. We have been reviewing a wide variety of letters and our songs which have helped them to retain the phonic sounds of each letter. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
