Kindergarten

May 11th-15th

This week, Kindergarten continued to prepare for their Mother’s Day Tea Party! Usually we’re able to help the students get ready for this day in class, so we wanted to start off by thanking all the Super-Dads for the amount of time and effort they spent supporting the children with these activities over the past two weeks. Both your husband and your child worked very hard to keep it all a surprise, in order to make this day as special as possible for you! Thank you also to the Super-Moms (and grandmoms!) for attending today’s Tea Party! We certainly loved celebrating with you and we hope you enjoyed the afternoon as well! Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing Super-Moms!
