Preschool will be taking a field trip to the Children’s Museum on Wednesday, May 10. A google form was sent to your email. Please fill it out by Wednesday, April 26, so that I may have a good idea of who is planning to attend. Remember that every preschooler is invited regardless of what session they usually attend. Thanks!

Our school musical is almost upon us! Please remember that each preschooler is expected to attend either the 3:30pm performance or the 5:30pm performance on Friday, April 28th. A note was sent home with your child that tells you which performance they are expected to attend. Please note that your child will sit with you during the performance until it is time for them to come up to the stage to perform. They will then return to sit with you after their performance is done. Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the performance so that we can get them ready in their costumes.  If you have any questions, please reach out. Thanks!

Please check out my website for more information!
