Kindergarten celebrated Apple Day on Sept. 25. Parents came to work centers that focused on math, science, reading and art. Each student brought an apple to carry with them to the measuring station where they weighed and measured their apples. Other activities included sequencing an apple story, creating the life cycle of the apple, tasting different types of apples, painting seasons of an apple tree and much more. The students had such a fun and educational day. Thanks to all the parents who came to help make apple day a great success.
