Each year, a committee of parents, teachers, administrators and area community supporters meet to create a plan of action. These visionaries discuss information, ideas, concerns and dreams for their schools and their students' futures. The discussions are honed into an action plan with a list of measurable objects over the course of the coming year. If you'd like to be involved in the committee, please contact your school office for more information. To view the school plan, please click on the links below:

Five powerful moves preschoolers should have down that help lay the foundation for enhanced engagement, function and learning.
Making the most with active play
All learning is sensory based. Preschoolers with play and movement lay down important foundation skills for higher level thinking. These motor skills should be practiced and reinforces through active play. Let’s understanding what makes for better integrative motor skills
FIVE moves children should be doing!
- Vestibular actions (Vestibular – Spinning (both directions), forward and backwards, right and left, up and down).
- Crossing midlines ( body awareness, coordination, breaking out of primitive reflexes that prime the system to start controlling movements)
- Visual dexterity
- Balance (motor control, strength, using all three systems that support balance)
- Fine Finger Fiddles (finger isolation, strengthening, two hands working together in midline)
ELL/ESL (English Language Learners and English as a Second Language) students and families are the fastest growing population in America. This station was designed to help educators obtain perspective on one of many hurdles that our little ones and their families need help coursing through. The English language is chocked full of colorful sayings and idioms that we use as a common piece of our language base, but imagine if you were the only person in a classroom that had never heard some of these common phrases. Not only do you have to break down the meaning of the words, you have to break down the meaning BEHIND the words to a catch phrase that makes no sense! Well, as educators we have two options, teach them the idioms we use, and their meanings or reduce their use from our language base. Then again, maybe we can do both! Here is the activity we shared for Preschool Provider Night this year.
