Preschool Celebration

This morning was Ashlin's Preschool Celebration! It is called a celebration and not a graduation because some of the children will be taking preschool again next year. I told Ashlin it was her graduation and celebration from preschool because she will be moving on to Kindergarten in the fall. There were 24 students in Ashlin's class (6 girls and 18 boys). I also need to mention that there were 4 red-headed children in the class (Ashlin, Ty, Nathen, and Keaton). You don't see a lot of redhead people, so, to have 4 in one class was amazing!

Mrs. Keiser is the class' teacher aide and Mrs. Nedrow is the teacher. Mrs. Nedrow mentioned this morning that there were three families in the class that this is the third child in the family that she has had as a preschool student (Faltys, Thramers and Leader). Mrs. Nedrow moved to teaching preschool when Cara started preschool. She is an awesome teacher!

The students performed a short program for the parents and grandparents that were in attendance. The program consisted of the students reciting a prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, counting by 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's, saying the days of the week, saying the months of the year, singing a song about the alphabet, singing the school's theme song for the year, and singing a few other class favorites.

Waiting for the program to begin. The children were all tired of sitting and were very excited. They had a busy morning that consisted of: attending Mass since it was a holy day, attending the May crowning of Mary, and saying a decade of the rosary at church.
Take care,


  1. What a cute little program. Sounds like she will be ready for kindergarten with all the things they have learned!

  2. How sweet they call it a celebration. Wow, that's a lot of boys in that class! I babysit a red head whose parents do not have red hair. Gotta love red heads!

  3. What a fun celebration! Cute pictures of the kiddos!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Congrats to Ashlin! Kindergarden will be very exciting next year!
