Dear Preschool Families:

Welcome to 2019!  We hope you enjoyed your winter break.  It’s almost looking like spring outside, but we have a few more months of winter to go.  So, please continue to send warm outerwear for your children to wear outside.

We will start off the year with the STEM Unit: Life Cycles of Insects and Plants.  This is great chance to encourage your children to practice being scientists as they stop and observe creatures and plants.   The questions they ask are part of the scientific process.  This ties in nicely with the STEM Profile of the month of “Curious”.  The STEM Life Cycle Unit Family letter is below.  


Thank you so much for your donations!
