Preschool News

Hard to believe we are at the end of October and we will start practicing songs for our Christmas musical soon. Where does the time go! Our time with these little ones is so very short but so very important!! They have been working so hard. We have such good kiddos and love them all.

Big thanks to Jeanie Park who came in to read to the kiddos. If anyone else would like to come read or share something with the preschool please let me know and we will find a time for ya to come in.
