July Preschool Newsletter
Happy 4th of July! We plan to “Celebrate America” with your children as we learn about some of the important American symbols of our great country. Although our themes are fun, there is no less learning going on. We are still learning about letters, counting, graphing, and patterning…learning to follow directions, building social skills, and positive relationships with adults other than family.
