A Whole Lot of Learning in Preschool!
Words alone cannot describe the richness of experience that is to be enjoyed in our district preschool program. We have included just a few snapshots of classroom activities as well as a short video. We encourage you to watch the video with your child so together you can enjoy all the moments captured within. A special thank you is due to Mrs. Julie Stanley for putting together this lovely video!https://animoto.com/play/4LRuDZKeNXZ0S5GkRd0e9A
