Welcome to Ms. Ashley's Pre K 1 Class

  • THANK YOU to all who have filled out the Getting to know you sheets, I love reading them. I look forward to getting the rest of them!
  • As you know transitions have just took place! My class went from 13 to 6, Whoa!
  • Right now we are taking advantage of the small group and each child has been getting some form of one-on-one time with me. This has helped me build personal relationships with each of your children. :)
  • I am currently the sole teacher in the room, however more kids will eventually turn 4 and my class will grow. Somedays you might notice other children "Visiting" as they are preparing to move up.
