Congratulations on making it to the end of the year with your child! What a year it has been. I am so happy to have known and worked with each of you and hope you enjoy your summer!

Dear parents,
Moving forward with the next phase of online learning, I will be posting weekly activity plans. These activities will cover some of the many goal areas and standard blocks that we cover in preschool. I strongly encourage you to try some or all of the activities with your child to encourage learning and development while at home. Please see the "Files and Documents" tab for the weekly activities (they will be sorted by dates). In addition, Ms. Christy has recorded read-alouds for your children to watch! Those videos can be found under the "Useful Links" tab. As always, please do not hesitate to email me if you need anything or have questions! (

Dear Parents,

Please see the "Files and Documents" section of the web page in order to find the resources that I have created and the resources provided by PWCS for all families during this closure. In addition, I've added a "Preschool academic standards" file folder that has the academic standards that we have worked on throughout the year and what we had not yet covered. This may be helpful if you would like to do some "academic time" at home with your child. Please remember that academic work is not required or assigned at this time. Also, please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like me to explain anything further, need specific resources or ideas, or if there are any other ways that I can support you. 
Take Care,
Laura Kelley (3/24/2020)
