When you can’t go to the farm you bring the farm to you!


It’s been a very busy and successful start to the new school year. Over the last two months we’ve been spending a lot of time exploring outside, learning about healthy bodies, meeting new friends, and conducting a ton of science experiments!


Our summer campers had so much fun turning the classroom into a Lula party. We did the limbo, played a few games, and of course learned how to hula!


Kokopelli Olympics was a huge hit! Our campers made jerseys and competed in the torch run, the hurdles, the three legged race, and a special group relay game. The Olympics would not be complete without a special award ceremony 🏅Great job everyone!


We love BringtheHoopla LLC! Thank you for coming to Kokopelli and bringing a fun and safe program to summer camp!

Summer camp is off to a great start! We’ve been busy with lots of fun activities and special events. Check out a few moments from our jungle boogie and paint party.


Wild West Day was a huge hit at summer camp!


Congratulations to our Pre-Kindergarten Graduates! We celebrated our students last week with a very special drive thru style ceremony.
Here’s a few moments we captured ❤️

This year may not have been the school year we were expecting but it was the school year we were given. Instead of feeling sorry for the missed classroom opportunities, I choose to focus on what we did accomplish and can’t help but to feel proud.

Proud that we still learned while we were apart. Proud that through nightly story time videos, hand delivered learning kits, and online lessons, we grew together. Proud that we all slowed down a bit, learned at home, and spent time with our families. Proud that we supported each other even while we were apart.

So I say congratulations to not only our pre-kindergarten graduates but to the parents, families, preschoolers, and teachers who choose to learn, grow, and make this year work. You did it! Now go wash your hands.


While students were away from school we asked them to decorate a quilt piece with things that bring them happiness and joy. We love how beautiful our quilt is turning out and wanted to share ❤️ We are together even when we are apart.


We have a few spaces left for Fall 2020!

We hope we can make you laugh with this very special story time of “Giraffes Can’t Dance”
Featuring all the teachers from our school.


Here’s another fun story for your little ones.
“Caps for Sale” is a class favorite and usually the students get to pretend they are the monkeys in the book.


Mother Bruce Story Time

For the last two weeks I have been acting out storybooks for our preschool students while they are spending time at home. Our kids have loved them so much we thought of all the other children out there who are looking for something fun and educational to do while they are at home. I’m a very theatrical teacher and don’t mind being silly during stories because it’s all to bring a smile or laugh to child’s face. Hope you enjoy our story time and I have many more videos and resources if anyone is interested.

[03/17/20]   Hello Kokopelli Families,
