Celebrating Valentine's Week in Pre-K 2!
Good afternoon Pre-K 2 families,
It’s hard to believe that February break is here! The children might welcome the time off from school after such a busy week. We had lots of fun at our Valentine’s Dance on Monday. Some of the children enjoyed seeing students that were in their classes last year. On Tuesday, our Valentine’s Day snack was a success. Thanks to all who donated items! Lastly, on Wednesday Mrs. G visited and we got to dance with our stuffed animals. Thanks for visiting Mrs. G!
