Many thanks to our families that participated in our Preschool Family Night on Tuesday, November 30th. We had a great turn out!


The families that attended had a great time participating in a variety of math and literacy games. There was also a photo book, face painting, and holiday sugar cookies.


Our Preschool staff did a great job putting on this year's family night. Thanks to all!
