Welcome Parents of the Class of 2033! 
This Fall is going to be exciting as we get to know each other. Becoming sociable is one of many concepts taught in our class. Being together 5 days for 2 ½ 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 2nd, we will have Mothers Saturday. We will have our class pictures on November 7th. 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!
