Today Mr. Hagge was a substitute teacher for Mrs. Varvel. Even though he is posing here with a guitar it is our understanding that he ended up reading to the PreK class instead! Perhaps Mr. Hagge needs to take more music lessons to learn to play that guitar!
This week, April 2-8, is the Week of the Young Child. The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early childhood education association, with nearly 60,000 members and a network of 52 Affiliates. The purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child is a time to plan how we—as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation—will better meet the needs of all young children and their families. Please watch for more information and pictures as our preschool classroom celebrates this week with Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday, and Family Friday.
The Hay Springs Public School PK-5th grades enjoyed a Ground Hog Day celebration this morning…or rather a “Hound Dog Day” celebration…with a special visitor! After learning about the weather outlook for the next 6 weeks, the kids had some yummy treats before returning to their room. A huge thank you to Mrs. Weyers for organizing this warm and wonderful event on such a cold day!
Hay Springs Public School’s Early Childhood Program has openings in both the morning (8-12) and afternoon (12-4) preschool classes. Incoming preschool students must be 3 by the end of July. We are excited to start a new school year and will be having a preschool open house on Wednesday, August 11th during our Back to School Night, 4:30-6:30. Please contact the school with any questions, to get more information, or to register your student for the upcoming school year.
We had such an amazing afternoon preschool class this year with all of our morning kids returning and adding some great new friends. I was both happy and sad while creating this video, sad that we had to leave so much unfinished and happy to look back on all the smiles, growth, and learning that we did have together. I hate that we didnt get to end our year with our classmates, to say goodbye, or to give our kiddos a real graduation to celebrate all that they have accomplished. I am so proud of this class and can’t wait to see the amazing things they do next year! It’s tough to think that when I see them next, they will be in kindergarten, but I know that they are ready! Congratulations Hay Springs Preschool Class and parents, have an amazing summer!
What an amazing first year of preschool together! I absolutely loved teaching your kids and can not wait to see them again in the fall for our second year together! I wish the end of our school year was different, there are so many ideas that we didn’t get to create and so many pictures I didn’t get to take. But, we did get in tons of playing and learning before we had to leave. I am so proud of all they accomplished both in school and at home. I hope you enjoy this video of our time together. Again, thank you parents! Have a wonderful summer and please let me know if you need anything. 🙂
Obviously this year we are forced into trying something different for our preschool roundup, so we hope you enjoy Ms. Sherlock’s video and please be sure to look at the Entry Forms for more information. If you have any other questions, please call the school at 308-638-4434 and talk to Adriene! We look forward to seeing you next Fall!
