    Today, love and learning intertwined as we celebrated Valentine’s Day in all of our classrooms! Our newest addition, the Jellyfish classroom (PK3), hosted a party filled with cookie decorating and themed activities, alongside our amazing parents. And did you know, there’s more to the fun than meets the eye?

In our joyful festivities, our teachers seamlessly incorporated key educational standards:

Using clay, or little artists molded heart shapes, a great way to encourage their exploration of recognizable objects and forms, as well as a great fine motor activity.
