Noah's Ark and Pumpkins

Last month, we learned about Farms and began learning the story of Noah. The Gilbert Fire Fighters came to visit and taught us about bike safety, pool safety and what to do in the case of a fire! We are so thankful for their service! This month we'll continue to learn about Noah's Ark as we get ready for the Fall Festival, and we'll make Rainbow Break for snack. Later in October, we will do experiments with pumpkins!
 
Thank you for meeting with the teachers for conferences! We are partners in your child's education and this time is so important for getting one on one time with your child's teacher.

PreK parents, it's time to start looking at schools for your child. Kindergarten registration starts in January for some schools. As a staff, we have a lot of different experience with schools in the Gilbert/Chandler/Mesa area. If we can help in any way, please let us know.
