What type of skin do you think dinosaurs had? Rough, smooth, bumpy?

Time for a science experiment!! We mixed baking soda and vinegar! Boom!🌋

Digging for fossils and piecing them together was tricky but fun! Now, just like the dinosaurs-DINO WEEK is extinct! 

DADS NIGHT PREK 4's

Prek 4's invited their dads to preschool!  They colored a picture, wrote a story together, watched a little Prek TV on the BIG screen and assembled a launch pad and rocket! BLAST OFF!!

The morning class joined in our Easter Triduum Prayer Service with kindergarten through eighth grade. Saint Mary staff washed the hands of one another. As Jesus did...we do for others. May His light shine through us in all we do and say.

Wacky Wednesday Pre-k 4's

Preschool is celebrating Seuss! Wednesday was wacky! It all began with that shoe on the wall. A shoe on the wall? That shouldn't be there at all! 

IMG_6684.JPG

Classmates wore their clothes inside out and backwards and mismatched their shoes and socks! Crazy hair could be found everywhere!

IMG_6733.JPG

Friends worked together to find all the mix ups throughout the classroom! Just like in the book, WACKY WEDNESDAY, things were NOT what they seemed. Wacky things were all about!

Wacky feet and hair!
