Thank you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who contributed money to our staff meals and gifts! A special thank you to Kaitlyn Haupert and the Advisory Board for arranging all of it. The meals you all provided were wonderful and came at a time when we were so grateful to have lunch provided. As I always say, FOOD is a teacher's Love Language. The gifts you provided to our office staff, music teachers, and Mr. Barry were so generous. We are so lucky to work at a school with such kind and appreciative families.

Music Team News

Welcome back and Happy New Year, Little School families!

We are so proud of all the children for singing so beautifully for their Christmas programs. Kudos to all the Little Schoolers for performing so well!

We will kick 2023 off with Western Week and campfire sing-along songs and circle dances. We will sing old time favorites likes, "Home on the Range," and "She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain."

We are excited to invite you, parents and siblings, to attend our campfire sing-along with all the Little Schoolers on January 17th or 18th. Please meet us upstairs, around our campfire, during your child's music time. Classroom teachers will let you know when to come!

We will end the month with songs about winter, ice skating, and snowball fun for all the children!

We as a music team would like to extend our deepest appreciation for the very kind and generous Christmas gifts from ALL the Little School families. Thank you so much. Our hearts were filled with warmth and joy.

As always, it is such a pleasure to have your children with us, learning about music each and every day.

Blessing to all this entire year,

Ms Laura, Ms Sheri, Ms Jana

Universal Preschool Program!

If your child will be 4-years-old on October 1, 2023, you are eligible for free preschool (minimum of 10 hours a week) for the 2023-2024 school year.

Please see the flier below for more information. If you are interested in utilizing this program, please be sure you register with us AND you register through the UPK parent portal on January 17th. You will be placed at our school through the UPK so prompt registration through their portal is important. It is important to also register with us directly in case there are technical difficulties or placement issues through the UPK.

Registration Opens Soon!


Due to licensing rules and regulations, all families must re-register annually. That means, even if you are enrolled now, you must re-register for the 2023-2024 school year that will begin in August 2023.

Please do not delay on turning in your registration form. We only need the one-page registration form at this time.

We open up enrollment to the public on January 17th and can no longer honor your current/alumni status. With the new Universal Preschool Program for 4-year-olds, we expect registration to fill very quickly.

Please click below to access our registration form.

If you are planning to utilize the Universal Preschool Program (4-year-olds only), please write UPK on your form.
