This morning, we met a real police officer! Epiphany's 2nd grade teacher, Ms. Ruehl, invited her father Officer Ruehl to speak to Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students today. He spoke about the importance of being safe around roads and railroad tracks. He reminded us of the important number to call if we need help: 911. And we got to see his badge, vest, helmet and hat!
We had many discussions today about what our preschoolers might want to be when they grow up. Do you have an idea what your preschooler answered when asked what they want to be when they grow up? You might be surprised! Check out the photos below for their answers.
Our day began with the family breakfast. I am so glad that so many family members were able to join us this morning. It is such a fun treat and a great way to start our morning!
We then had a guest reader who came in to read a fun book to us. Thank you Mr. Tom Zbierski. It was so fun having someone new come in to read to us. Hopefully, we'll be able to have him come in to read to us another time.

Today was our 100th Day of School! We are now 100 days smarter! To celebrate our day, we made hats, decorated certificates, and attempted to build towers using 100 cups.
We finished off our celebration with some photo booth pictures. We had a really fun day!
We went down to the gym today to see what items were available at the Book Fair. There are so many great books! Our preschoolers are very excited!
We continued learning about the primary colors this week. Each table had two colors of paint on it. The preschoolers were divided into groups and each group took a turn painting at each table. We were able to see red and yellow making orange, red and blue making purple, and blue and yellow making green. It was messy but a lot of fun!
