These two big brothers love to help make sure their baby sisters get safely back and forth across the big playground to the toddler playground. So sweet!😍 BTW, teacher is right next to them, just out of the frame....LOL.

After playing, the preschool explorers were having just as much fun helping clean up the leaves.

Our playground is filled with the most beautiful leaves! 🍂🍁

PSA Parent Hack alert! Most info that we need/want our PSA parents to know is on the white board facing you as you walk in the door. Don’t have time to read the entire message(s) as you arrive/depart? Take a pic with your phone so you can read and absorb the info later. This is tomorrow’s board.

After a weekend full of fixing and cleaning, we will be open for business tomorrow as usual! We missed all of you and can not wait to get back on schedule tomorrow!! A few photos of our playground cleanup!

[09/05/19]   Update: As of right now, as long as power is restored, we plan to open for our regular business hours on Monday!

We will be closed until further notice! Following CCSD weather related closings allows us the opportunity to prepare our school for the imminent weather and also a chance to evacuate, should we choose to do so. We will be placing sandbags and picking up loose playground equipment tomorrow morning; if you’d like to help out, feel free to message us! Thanks for your understanding and amazing support of our school!
