The Trailblazers spent the morning “trying on” kindergarten while parents attended an informational coffee with Head of School Alexandra Thurstone and Lower School Director Jennifer Griffith. The children visited several specialty classes such as art, music, Spanish, and PE. They also spent time with the junior kindergarten and kindergarten teachers and students in their classrooms. The morning was complete with a delicious lunch in the cafeteria. Learning more about kindergarten will help prepare our preschoolers as they make the transition to Lower School. Here is a great article from the National Association for the Education of Young Children on kindergarten readiness.

A Few Thank Yous
Thank you to everyone who donated winter coats and to our Coat Drive chair Hallie Moser for helping make our 2019 Coat Drive a success. Our hearts were warmed to see former students stop by to drop off coats they’ve outgrown. We also want to thank the many parents who joined us and contributed food to our Preschool Thanksgiving Luncheon. There are a few items that were left, please let Renee Hennessy know if you are missing cookware.
