Kindergarten

November 1-5

The students had a fun-filled week in Kindergarten! They went on their first field trip to the Pumpkin Patch on Tuesday and were super excited to pick out their perfect pumpkins! As they were pumpkin picking, the students were also able to make connections to the Pumpkin Life Cycle. Thank you to the parent drivers who accompanied us on this field trip! We are incredibly grateful for your support.

The children also enjoyed seeing each other’s Halloween costumes and had a FANG-tastic time participating in today’s festivities! Special thanks to the Chiu and Stavem families for organizing and hosting different Halloween activities for our class this afternoon. Miss Guevara and I would like to wish everyone a safe and fab-BOO-lous Halloween!
