Bellow you will find general information about the Prek program.


  • Students may arrive for before care between 7am-7:45am, this is held in the lunch room with all school students that arrive early.

  • Pre-K students arriving between 7:45-8:05am will meet in the Marian room for Minds in Motion (a gross motor course designed to help students focus their minds and bodies). You may drop your child off in car line at door 4 or park in the west parking lot and walk your child in door 4 and down the stair to the Marian room. You are welcome to stay for minds in motion for the first few days and assist your child in putting their things away in the pre-k room after.

  • At 8:05 the pre-k students will move to the pre-k classroom and the exterior door #5 will be opened for children arriving late. 

  • As children finish putting their things away we will gather together on the rug for stories and then begin our day.


    We are using the High-scope curriculum in pre-k so the schedule will stay consistent.
