October 29th was Back to School Night at Jefferson Park Preschool. Parents and children came in for an evening of fun and learning. Each parent went to their preschooler's classroom and met with their teacher. Then families had the opportunity to participate in Large Group Time, the time in which the whole class get together to learn with the teacher.
Following large group time, the parents flexed their fine motor skills by creating a craft project in each classroom. The night gave the parents a taste of what the children do in school all day. The parents were impressed by the hands on approach of the teachers to include the parents in their child's learning experience.
We also hosted a bake sale in which we raised fund to go toward field trips and program cost not covered by the district.
Overall it was a great evening of education, family and community!
