I just wanted to thank all of you for all of the cards, gifts, treats and deliveries that I have received over the past two weeks. The amount of love you have shown is overwhelming and I am forever grateful. I wish you all a relaxing and safe summer. I hope I see you around town! I’m always available by phone or email if the kids want to chat! I love you all! Thank you again for your support, cooperation and LOVE!!!!
It’s hard to believe that it is June and after all that we have been through as a community and nation that your sweet little ones who I love and miss so much will be stepping up in less than 2 weeks. Our year was filled with lots of love and smiles and laughter both in class and on our zoom calls and pre K missions. I have NEVER been more proud of a group of children in my life. They transitioned to this new way of life, having everything they knew to be normal taken away from them in a split second. Thank you for supporting the children and myself through these difficult times. I am proud of all of you as well!
Our Step-Up Ceremony will take place on Monday, June 15th at 9:30am. This will be a live program that we will being practicing today. I will however ask for the following to be pre recorded in the event that we have internet or Zoom issues on that day. I want to be prepared with a plan B. Should we be unable to go through our entire program, the pre-recorded edit will be posted on this page as well as emailed to each of you. I am crossing my fingers that our plans for the live version will go off without a hitch!
You will be receiving a delivery early next week with your child’s cap, diploma, Step-Up program and some surprises from me. I will let you know when these items will be delivered to your doorstep for a contactless delivery. Once you receive them, please take a picture of your child with the cap on, holding their diploma and send it to me. I also ask that you record your child saying the following, wearing their cap:
My name is______.
I am __ years old.
When I grow up I want to be_______.
Please join me on a Zoom call this evening, Thursday, June 4, at 7:30pm to discuss the plans for the live ceremony.
As we are learning about dinosaurs we know that we can’t find out things about these creatures from actual dinosaurs because they are EXTINCT or no longer alive in the world. We use FOSSILS to help us understand how dinosaurs lived and what their days were like. Watch the video below to learn more about fossils and how they help PALEONTOLOGISTS or people who study dinosaurs.
This week we will be learning about…DINOSAURS!!! Yes Michelle, the time has finally come! We will be taking a look at these prehistoric creatures and learning some fun facts.

Watch the video below and choose something that interests you about dinosaurs to tell me about next week. Print out the dinosaur packet to use throughout our classes. Have fun!
