Pre-K Distance Learning

Pre-K Distance Learning

Families, In this unprecedented COVID-19  crisis, you stepped in and helped in unremarkable ways with your child’s education at home.  I know it wasn’t easy, and wasn’t ideal, but your dedication to your child’s education has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated.  Students’ families and educators have always been a team, but this year we truly showed what TEAMWORK is all about.  Thank you for all your dedication, effort and support!
