Dramatic Play Volunteers Desperately Needed!

You've most probably heard your child talking about Center Time in Kindergarten. It is an exciting, fun part of our day and is exclusive to Kindergarten! The Centers are set up so that every child has the opportunity to practice social skills, play imaginatively, and build relationships with children in other Kindergarten classrooms. One of the kids' favorite Centers is Dramatic Play, which features a different play environment each month. We are in desperate need of volunteers to take on this Center and set up some great theme-related activities for our students. We have had wonderful parents volunteer and set up a Pumpkin Patch, Restaurant, and Doctor's Office. We did not have any volunteers for this month, so, unfortunately, the students will not get a new experience for February. If you are interested in helping Kindergarten with our Dramatic Play Center, please email Surekha Patel at surekha.patel@pisd.edu, and tell her for which of the following months/themes you would like to volunteer.



March 2 - 29 - Outer Space

March 30 - April 15 - Grocery Store

April 15- May 27 - Camping


See the website below for examples of Dramatic Play Centers:

February 4th is the 100th Day of School!

The 100th Day of School is a big deal for us in Kindergarten! We will have a day full of 100-themed activities. We'll even have a parade with First Grade at 10:00 AM. To make the day even more fun, we are asking all of our Kindergartners to dress up as their 100-year-old selves! Have fun putting a costume together!
