It was a fun and exciting week, with Ms. K our Kaboom Kicker! She brought messages of kindness and taught our students how to be bucket fillers. We had a kindness scavenger hunt and learned how to care for our fellow students. We also practiced our “kaboom kick”, reviewing all the letters we learned this year with our balloon kicking challenge. We also learned that a Kangaroo jumps 30 feet and measured and graphed how far each of our students can jump! We also had a visit from Ms. P with Pointy Patches and learned all about Pumpkins! We sorted pumpkins and gourds by size and dissected pumpkins. We also learned how we can use our 5 senses to make learning more fun. We played a pumpkin seed counting game, and we created cute story books on the lifecycle of a pumpkin. Finally, Pumpkin Bingo was super fun as we reviewed our shapes and letters throughout the week!
CNS has been an absolute blessing for my family. I couldn’t think of a better place for both of my children to have their first experience of school. My daughter Julia attended CNS for two years: in the three-year-old program and then for the four-year-old pre-K program. She is now in 2nd grade and looks forward to picking up her younger brother from CNS everyday and giving all of her former preschool teachers a big hug. She has such great memories of her time there. My son Joey is now in his second year at CNS in Mrs. Smith’s pre-K class. This is the first year we tried out the afternoon enrichment programs and we are thrilled with how fun and exciting his days are. Joey adores Mrs Smith and all of his classmates and he really loves the art, music, & cooking enrichment classes. Both of my children love going to school every single day because of the support, love and acceptance they received at CNS. Plus, Joey says “It’s so much FUN!!”
The staff at CNS has become our extended family and the friendships we have made with other CNS families are going to be lifelong. I am going to be so sad next year when my youngest is ready to move on to kindergarten and our time at community nursery school will be over.
