Hello my friends! I’m loving spring right now. I can’t wait for the Easter Bunny to visit me at my house! Are you excited also? If you see this from Pre-K-4, tell me 1 thing you are excited for about Easter and Ms. Gallina will give you a virtual high five on Class Dojo!
Although we are going through a bit of a rough patch, the incoming spring season is a symbol of change and growth. At MCA, we will continue to GROW through whatever we GO through, together as a school. Bare with us as we continue to make the transition to online learning, as easy as possible. Over here in Pre-K, we are still doing lots of learning, even from home! I can’t believe how much we are growing and preparing for Kindergarten. Peek back to this page to find out more exciting updates as we navigate our new virtual classroom experience!

Hey from Pre-K-4! Things are moving along quite nicely in our classroom. We have been doing lots of fun things in here. We had a chance to get our hands messy and make some snow! After that, we were able to have a snowball fight right in our room! We had so much fun. We are slowly getting through our ABC’s, we are learning about letter “J” this week! J is for Jam! I think we might even get the opportunity to make some strawberry jam with our own two hands this Thursday…. but shhhh it’s a surprise!

It’s Christmas time in Pre-K-4! Our tree is lit, and we are ready for Santa to come to our homes! This week in Pre-K-4, we will be reviewing what we have learned thus far. This week is a very exciting week because we will be joining with our friends from Pre-K-3 and Kindergarten to celebrate Grinchmas! We are trying to be on our best behavior because Bendy, Santa’s special elf, has been hanging around our classroom watching our every move! He told us he will tell Santa who is naughty or nice! We will end this week with our class Christmas party, and Santa might even call us again!
