Ann Reid Families,

Thank you to everyone for being so patient during the arrival and dismissal process. We are working to minimize the amount of time students are on buses and maximize the amount of time they are in classes. We are lucky to have great education partners like you.

This is The Week of the Young Child. The Week of the Young Child® (WOYC) is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The purpose of the Week of the Young Child® is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

This year due to COVID-19, there have been many restrictions in place to ensure the safety of all people. The learning structure has been something new to the children, early childhood educators and families alike. As we look back on the past year, we are looking forward and honoring & celebrating teachers and families working with the early childhood children.
