This month, the preschool classrooms are focusing on "Super Friends" as a part of our Pyramid Initiative. Super Friends are recognized when they demonstrate skills such as sharing, requesting toys appropriately, using kind words, etc. Please talk to your child at home about these friendship skills and look for super friend!

Our first super friend is Kalvin! Way to go!
