We Are Sailing Through Kindergarten!

May 6th, 2016

This week...

  • This week we celebrated the people we love with our Special Person Day party. Thank you so much to those who joined us to celebrate. Watch the video below to take a trip down memory lane. The video highlights our journey through Kindergarten (so far!). Enjoy!
  • We also went to the Nature Study Center to visit Mr. Black. We got to pet Oreo the bunny and had fun exploring the center to study all of the plants and animals. Mr. Black taught us about the bones we have in our body and the bones the animals have in their bodies. We were so intrigued and we learned so much!
  • A special message to our Moms... Happy Mother's Day! Enjoy your special day!
