The children of Apple's Preschool have begun their Reading Awareness Program.  Every time they read ten books at home with a family member, they get a colorful circle hung on their spaceship from the ceiling.  We have had Mystery Readers come in to surprise the kids with a fun story or two.  Thank you so much, Rita Frey, for sharing your talents with us.  We all enjoyed meeting you and would love to have you come back again soon.  The Red Robin mascot came to read to our PM Pre-K Class too with his friend, Buddy, who did the reading while the Robin tweeted.


A good time was had by all at our St. Patrick's Day parties.  Lucky the Leprechaun didn't disappoint us this year he again made a mess in our classroom, danced on our tables, and used our bathroom.  And, we found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!


Following our Space theme this year, each week we choose two little "humans" to be our special helpers.  They get special jobs, help the teachers, and get to take home a cute alien book that they read with their family and sign their name in the cover with an "official astronaut pen".  They also get to help decorate a spaceship shaped poster that tells us all about what makes them special.


We have 32 children enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year already!!!  There are still openings; help spread the word!


If anyone would like to be a Mystery Reader, please contact Miss Shani at




Check our the fun things we did at Preschool in March!
