Step-Up Day

Today our students went to the next grade up to get a taste of what it would be like and to meet the teacher. The students had a blast singing, hearing stories, doing crafts, having special snacks, and learning what the “big kids” learn. Enrollment packets will be going out soon. If you have any questions about the next grade-up please ask the office, myself or Mrs. Boettcher. We would be happy to talk with you. We also have Parent Step-Up day next Friday. 8-9 a.m. It will start in the Commons with a special reception. From 8:30-9 a.m. parents will be excused to observe their child’s next grade-up classroom.
