May 5th to May 9th

It was a great week in PreK! We started our unit on simple machines. So far we have talked about what we know about simple machines and the different types of simple machines.

A special thank you to all the parents that contributed to Ms. Derhyll’s surprise party for her baby boy. Ms. Derhyll will be going on maternity leave on May 9th. We will miss her and wish her and her family all the best!

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
