Pre-K, Pete and Me!

prek14I’m spending the entire morning with our smallest learners as our district celebrates Pre-K Week!

Our district has 42 pre-k classrooms at 35 school sites across the district.  The school system serves around 875 pre-k students each year.  Our pre-k program is funded by the Georgia Lottery and governed by Bright from the Start and partners with the YMCA Head Start.

When a pre-k program is housed in our schools, the school principal provides oversight and management of the classroom.  This means that our itty-bitty learners get the opportunity to participate in numerous academic and recreational activities during the day, usually reserved for older students.  I truly enjoy watching our pre-k teachers and students in action.  They use standards that address the social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children.

Today I’m reading Pete the Cat, a story by Eric Litwin (who is from right here in Atlanta by the way).  Be on the lookout for new photos as I post them below! Happy Pre-K week!
