All Aboard the Reading Train

The reading challenge is on!  Each student is reading books at home and returning their boxcars, adding them to their class train.  The boxcars are added to the wall daily and the children are excited to see who is in the lead.  The Pre-K students have read over 1,500 books.  I can’t wait to see how many more they will read in the month of February.  Stop in to the see the progress!

Superhero Performance

The Virginia school readiness program collaborated with the Virginia Public Library to bring the Duluth Playhouse’s Imaginarium performers to the Parkview big gym on Monday, October 23 at 12:45.  The performers will present an interactive play about superheroes and everyday superheroes.  The play will be approximately 45 minutes long and is open to the public with small children.

School Readiness conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, November 1 and Thursday, November 2.

Congratulations and Welcome to the 4 year old School Readiness program!!!!

Starting preschool is an exciting milestone for your young child’s life, marked by their emerging sense of independence of expanding social, language, and thinking skills.  School Readiness provides children with various opportunities to participate in early childhood and kindergarten readiness programs that enable them to enter school with the skills and behaviors needed to progress and flourish.
