Ms. Gaston's PK Class

Welcome to Pre School!

Hi! I hope you are ready for a fun adventure this year! This year we will be working closely with literacy developing our phonemic awareness skills as we prepare to become eager readers, as well as our social and motor skills. We will be learning as a team everyday and it is imperative we have our parents' support! I encourage parent involvement as much as possible and wish to serve as a great example for your child this year. I'm so excited for our journey together this year!
