Preschool Graduation

Preschool Graduation --- what a fun night and a fun milestone!!

Our whole family had the best experience these past two years at North Como Preschool.  The staff were amazing and so many of the other families have become fast friends ..... though seeing the girls in their graduation caps, watching them smile, sing, perform and laugh --- seeing their looks of confidence and knowing all of their achievements --- it all made for a great evening.  My heart was bursting with love and pride, and my cheeks literally hurt from smiling so much.

The Performance ......


Ella and Zoe's very special, super outstanding preschool teachers, Miss Yvonne and Mrs. Charly --- who will always have a special place in our hearts.

Both teachers took the time to truly get to know Ella and Zoe as individuals and worked with them patiently throughout the year.  They helped build their confidences and made sure that school was always fun and a place they wanted to be.  Zoe and Ella are ready for Kindergarten in large part because of their many positive experiences in preschool, and the gentle and loving encouragement and care provided by their teachers.  We can not thank them enough.

I love my girls, and could not be more proud of both of them.

Wow, they got fun little caps and everything. Now it's on to the big time!

To answer your earlier question, Jia is done on June 8th. I think her teacher will have to pry her little body off of her...hoping it's not too traumatic.
