Pre-K Graduation

a rainbow of possibilities

It was so hard to say good-bye to our Pre-K friends on Friday! Some of our friends have been attending school here since 2015 and it feels like yesterday, they just started. Time sure flies. But we couldn't let them leave without showering them with gifts and memories they can keep forever.

We had a total of 8 kids to walk across the stage and receive their certificate of completion. Everyone was so proud and happy to see them grow up to be at the point that they will start “big-kid” school soon.

Although we are social distancing, we opened the enrichment room for parents and sibling and hosted a live screening of the graduation on our Instagram page. This allowed grandparents, and any other family members to view graduation from home. Many of the families really appreciated this gesture.

Ms. Madison and Ms. Faith, our Pre-K 2 teachers, were more than proud and they are already sad to see them go. All our friends will definitely be missed.

Mad Scientist Week

Visit from a Mad Scientist!

On yesterday, we received a visit from Mr. Bond the Mad Scientist. He came in to show our friends just how much fun we could have doing science experiments and learning at the same time. Many of our friends were more than impressed and thrilled to see all the cool things being created right before their eyes! This was a successful Mad Scientist Day! So much to come this week.

Days on the playgrounds have been our little friends' focus since the warm weather has come about. Their smiling and an extra boost of energy makes outdoor fun seem like the highlight of every day.

Our playgrounds are full of fun activities and toys, on top of our cool jungle gyms. Going outside is what all our friends look forward to day-to-day.

Water Day!

1st Water Day!!
This past Friday, we had our first water day! It was such a success! All of our friends were able to experience full water day fun. We kick-off the summer with a huge water slide, which all the older kids and some younger, loved! They all were thrilled and had a blast!

Although it was just the first water day, we can tell that it gives our friends so much to look forward to every Friday.

Pre-K Prom

All Day Prom!
On Friday, our Pre-K 2 class had their first all day Prom. Since times have been unsteady and we are still practicing social distancing, we decided rather than make it a night of dancing, we created a day of Prom activities.

Our Pre-K 2 friends were the stars of the day. We started with all of them walking down the red carpet, receiving their all access passes, and then they danced for a while

Afterwards they place their hand prints on the AOPP School of Fame.

Once we finished, our stars had a lunch together that they all really enjoyed.

Later in the day, we had snacks and a movie. They were all so excited about watching Trolls World Tour and just being with their friends.

Once the movie ended, we each Pre-K Star received their “Oscar” and certificate of completion. All Day Prom was awesome!
