Hello everyone, we are asking for your help. You may ask how can I help? Here’s the answer. The children of Open Arms along with their parents are selling cookies for a fundraiser. We are asking that you please purchase pre-portioned cookie dough from one of our little sellers. We have Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Cranberry White Chunk,Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodle, Triple Chocolate and White Macadamia Nut. Thanks in advance for your orders.

The toddlers also have learning activities. The twos still enjoy bringing in their homework.

The Toddlers are set for a great year of learning. Week one down. Let’s go toddlers.

This week the fours decided to show me just how well they paid attention to the word wall in their classroom. The word wall started off small but now it’s full of all the words the children have learned this year. So it was come to the office and read to Ms. Gaye week. They are really rock stars. Look out Kindergarten teachers here come the Open Arms super stars.

[07/31/18]   Open enrollment for three and four year olds.

One of my graduating students comes to my office and says Ms Gaye can I read this book for you. Of course you can is my response. He begins to read the book and only stubbles over two words. He reads the whole book which has 64 pages. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him grow from a shy little toddler to now an outgoing little gentleman. He loves school and he’s always happy to learn new things. He’s reading, adding, subtracting , and he can do some multiplication. Great job to my four year old teacher and his mom for allowing us to be a part of his early learning experience. I know he will do great in Kindergarten.
