Dear Parents,





INFORMATION REGARDING GRADUATION/MOVING UP CEREMONY:

 
Please note that the date of our Moving Up Ceremony has been moved to Tuesday, June 20th at 9:15.Please have your child arrive in school at 9:0O promptly. This will allow for us to get our little stars ready to perform for you. We are looking forward to seeing parents and guests! 

I am so impressed with the children and how much they are learning every day. We are continuing to learn about patterns. Patterns help children learn to make predictions, to understand what comes next, to make logical connections, and to use reasoning skills.  Patterns help pre- school social development because it instills in them an understanding of the sequence of everyday routines, such as taking turns while playing or following school rules. We will have a special lesson about patterns this month. The children are very excited, as they join in and participate in this activity!
