Welcome Parents of the Class of 2037

This Fall will be exciting as we get to know each other. Becoming sociable is one of many concepts taught in our class. Being together for 5 days for 6 hours allows us to all really get to know each other. Very soon, we are all one big FAMILY. As we begin our school year, we will talk about Apples, Pumpkins, Leaves, and all things that go along with Fall. We will have a fun field trip to Stokoe Farms. On November 4th, we will have Special Someone’s Saturday.We will have our class pictures on November 9th. To celebrate Thanksgiving; as a school, we have our Annual Feast. There are so many exciting, memorable activities that we will be doing in and outside our classroom. This Fall will be filled with a lot of fun!
