June is here, and with that comes the end of our school year. We begin to say good-bye to our graduates as they start their new adventure in Kindergarten. We will miss them all! We are excited about our new school year. As you will read in the summer packets, there is a lot of great things happening to kick off the new year. The class lists will be posted during the second week of June. During this time of transition it may be uneasy and difficult to watch your little one take the next step. Please remember to allow yourself some extra time in the morning to drop off your child on the first day of school. Join in their celebration as they reach the next milestone in their preschool years. This month we also celebrate the joys of fatherhood. It is always a pleasure to see the special bond that only a father and child share. Please remember if you have any questions about all the wonderful Links to Learning ahead, let me know!
Sincerely, Stephanie Gill / Principal
