Kane Day School venturing outdoors

April 22, 2012

Three year old students in Mrs. Watts' class at the Kane Day School love checking the signs of spring. The class has been venturing outdoors once a week to check on the growth of plants, animal arrivals and other signs of spring. They were delighted to see how much the plants had grown in a week, and got excited with the beutiful singing of the birds. Their picture on the steps shows another great sign of spring--their change from heavy coats, mittens and boots too much cooler clothing. Mrs. Watts has announced that there are still openings for three year olds in her afternoon class.
