Our “Wellness” curriculum component is using the following website at http://www.choosemyplate.gov/kids/ to ensure the nutrition of our students. Please look for our snack menu please let us know if you have any suggestions for our snack menu or would like recipes for home use.


Celebrations help our students meet our learning component in “Community and Environment”. If you would like to share a family tradition with our students, please let us know. Embracing diversity is a social skill that will help our students in the long run when traveling or building friendships.

Operation Christmas Child – Look for this article in the Mercury Newspaper ! Front page of the Milpitas Post! Facebook page of Milpitas Mayor Rich Tran

Every year our students talk about hunger and basic needs awareness. Our students collect basic needs items such as socks, shoes, clothing, toys, educational supplies, and etc. for a child in the same age group as themselves. They sort all the items during a “Packing Party” and pack enough to fill a shoebox for their international friends overseas. We would like to thank all the parents who helped participate in this event. The student collected over 75 boxes for children overseas.

Reading Program/Homework

Reading Program/Homework  is meant to be a positive experience for your childIts not mandatory to do the homework. The program was created for a social emotional development experience. Setting aside a specific time daily for your children reduces behavioral issues in the long run. We are just giving parents some activities to do during this time.  Please set aside a 20-30 minutes per night for your Prek or Prek2 child  and 10-20 minutes for Intermediates. If your child is refusing to practice writing, there are other alternatives; playdough, legos, setting up the table, folding laundry, helping to wash dishes, or clean off the dinner table. All these activities use their small motor skills and they are still building their muscles in their fingers. The book does not need to be read per verbatim. Have your child try and guess what is happening in the book. If your children want to talk with you about something this is also a good time to do so. Let us know if you are needing support.

Prek2 Uniforms

 Uniforms can be purchased from the website below for the Prek2 class:

The bottoms can be purchased at Walmart, Target, or Durable wear uniforms and must be either navy blue or khaki. The tops must be purchased from Queensboro uniforms and can be light blue, hunter green, or burgundy. You can have items shipped here to avoid shipping charges. We have some leftover stock in the office for purchase if you are interested. All students are required to wear uniforms in the Prek2 classroom Monday through Thursday. On Friday they get a free dress day.
