As Thanksgiving approaches we are thankful for the support you give to your children and our team each day. We are also thankful for opportunities that our Pre-Kindergarten program has been given this year. I’ve included them below.
NYOS Pre-Kindergarten Center
NYOS has a new Pre-Kindergarten Center! In June, Texas lawmakers approved funding for early childhood education as part of a major school finance law called House Bill 3 (HB3). HB3, along with an opportunity to expand learning spaces at the Kramer campus, allowed NYOS to now offer a full day program for our PreK-4 year old students.
With lots of work, patience, and flexibility by all, the new Pre-Kindergarten Center opened on October 21st. The Pre-K Center includes one Pre-K three-year-old classroom, two Pre-K four-year-old classrooms, a Spanish classroom, and several office spaces. It also has a STEAM room for our youngest learners to experience science, technology, engineering, art, and math activities, as well as outdoor space for eating and playing when the weather is nice!
PreK = Fabulous Teachers + Supportive Parents
We are thankful for our tremendously talented Pre-K team. The Pre-K-4 classrooms are led by Ms. Jessica Brown, Ms. Michelle Thompson, Ms. Mayra Arellano, and Ms. Farah Silat. Joining the team to lead our Pre-K-3 classes are Ms. Nichole Falgoust and Ms. Ofmara Samudio.
We are grateful and thankful for our Pre-K Parents! They have been so kind and supportive as we’ve worked to prepare the new Pre-K Center. They even took the time to organize a lovely appreciation celebration for the Pre-K teachers.
In this season of remembering to give thanks, I would like to express my appreciation to all who volunteer their time and talents to help our school. I hope you enjoy a healthy, safe Thanksgiving holiday break. I look forward to seeing you when we return on December 2nd!
