West Shore Educational Service District has created a Preschool Landing Page that includes many activities and resources for all families with preschoolers.  Check it out here:

Another great resource can be found at Ready4K (
Ready4K sends "messages to families with fun facts, easy tips, reinforcement, and encouragement to help parents support their children's development by building on everyday learning opportunities."

STEM Night Success

We had 100 participants register to attend our family STEM night!   The evening was designed to support our focus on math and science this year. The families were given a hand out explaining each activity in each room and were free to go to the classrooms in any order and for how long they wished. There was staff support in each classroom. The families participated in a pumpkin magic and color changing milk activity, measured out a snack mix, explored with magnets, created electricity( using a battery, wire, and light bulb), explored ramps, and took a marshmallow/gumdrop building challenge. We hope the evening created some excitement for families to collaborate in learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.   Thank you to everyone who made this event a success!  Check out a few photos from the night below!
