Thank you so much for an amazing year! Our students have grown in tremendous ways. We are so proud of all their hard work. Please continue to work with them over the summer to strengthen their skills.
As always, don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Have a fabulous summer!
Our mission is to provide our students with the opportunity to develop school readiness skills (pre-academic and social skills), by promoting a high quality academic environment, which fosters the love and joy of learning and promotes success in kindergarten and throughout the child's life.
Arrival and Departure Guidelines:
The VPK class works hard to develop self-help skills and independence. Please place clothing on your child that will allow him/her to be independent in the bathroom. We will work on many art activities, such as painting and gluing. We also spend much of our day at centers and in gross-motor activities such as recess.
