One of the needs that they meet is helping low income families during the Christmas season  by offering the The Manger. The Manger is a store-like experience to allow families to choose their own gifts a unique and special holiday shopping experience.

Fall Time!

We love this time of the year at Aow! One of our favorite things to do is to go on a nature hunt and find leaves that are around the school. We brought them in and did some leaf rubbing art and made our classroom look ready for Fall! Take look at some of the art that our Preschool 4 class made this week.

This week has been all about pumpkins! On Monday we had our Pumpkin Patch outside. The kiddos loved picking out the perfect pumpkin to decorate and take home! Tuesday was Explore a Pumpkin at Pickup! We had two pumpkins for everyone to examine with their parents. There were a lot of open ended questions which we love! In addition to all of the pumpkin fun this week, we also have our classroom pumpkin decorating contest! The teachers really went all out this year. We love all the Halloween spirit!
