The pre-school continues to flourish under the direction of Kelly Hobbins. We graduated twenty-one students this past summer and currently have sixty total in our school. This past spring we experienced some wonderful events. We were fortunate enough to be visited by a petting zoo, which educated us and allowed us to pet their friendly animals. We also had our first annual musical chairs extravaganza in which every student took part in a game of musical chairs for the entire pre-school population! It was a blast! We received some tremendous support from our Parent’s Association, as well. They sponsored a book drive, which yielded over 1200 books for our brand new pre-school library! Thanks parents! In addition, we just had our inaugural “Friday Fun-Day” on September 8 in which the wonderful students from The Hackley School helped us participate in ten fun-filled activity stations. We were also proud to be visited by Senator Nicholas Spano during this event, which was a rousing success! The pre-school will be adding a keyboard to each of its ten classrooms and will receive music class this upcoming year! As you can see, it is an exciting time for The Hawthorne Country Day Pre-School.
