Dear Parents,

This month the children will explore the season of fall. They will learn about the changes in weather, why leaves change color, and how both animals and people get ready for winter. We will be collecting leaves for our Science center and art projects. Our discussions will of course include learning about Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving.

Please continue to work with your child on dressing themselves and packing up their backpacks. It is important for your children to  become more independent. As always thank you for your continued support.

October 2018

Dear Parents,

I am happy to report that the children have settled in nicely. During the month of October the unit will be “Our Five Senses”. The students will explore each of their five senses through various planned activities which will include using colored view finders, tasting apples and making applesauce, using music instruments, playing with shaving cream and making playdough. The up coming art projects will also lend themselves to exploring new ways to use art materials. As always our daily story time will reflect the unit theme and include fiction as well as non fiction books.

There will be a Halloween parade on Oct.31 at 9:00am. We will exit the school from the front doors and walk completely around the block. Immediately following will we assemble on the lawn on Juno Street to sing a few fall songs that they learned in music! Please remember to consider whether your child can manage their costume with regard to the bathroom while in school.

Thank you for your continued support.

September 2018

Dear Parents,

I would like to wish you a warm welcome as we begin a new school year. This year will be one of tremendous growth and learning for your sons and daughters and I look forward to being a part of their learning journey.

Universal Pre-K focuses on learning through purposeful play. The learning experiences are grounded in the children’s interests and developed around learning in several disciplines that include Literature, Art, Math, Science and Social Studies. We will be working on units of study throughout the year. Our first unit will be “Welcome to Pre-K”. September will be a month of getting to know each other, making new friends, and learning classroom routines.

Please remember to send in your medical forms, your emergency contact information, a change of clothes, and the photos of your child. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.





Our Specials are as follows:
