Story Time!

By Renee Hennessy, Preschool Director

story-timeThe annual Blessing of the Pets could not have happened on a more beautiful day last week! It was so much fun seeing the children with the pets (both alive and toy) that we have heard so much about! Thank you to Reverend Kelly Kirby for blessing our pets on the Preschool playground.

This week, local author and illustrator Amanda Driscoll visited the Preschool to read two of her books, Duncan the Story Dragon and Wally Does Not Want a Haircut. The children listened intently as Duncan learned to control his fire breathing so he could finish a book. And what preschooler can’t relate to having his/her hair cut and the troubles that can possibly occur? We heard that Wally, too, doesn’t want a haircut, and he has a problem that only a haircut can help him overcome. You’ll have to read this story to find out the ending. At the end of the presentation, Amanda drew the two main characters from her books for the preschoolers. They loved watching Duncan and Wally come alive. She gave the pictures to us and we placed them outside of the Adventurers’ classroom. On a side note, Amanda’s children attended the Preschool, and we are so happy she came back to share her new books with your children. If you would like to purchase a signed copy of her books, please return the form we sent home by Thursday, October 20th.

Our next Big Sing is scheduled for Tuesday, October 18th. The Preschool will be closed on Thursday, October 27th for a Professional Development Day for the Preschool teachers. Friday, October 28th is Parent-Teacher Conference Day and you can sign up for conferences with your child’s teacher by clicking here.
