Here are some proposed activities for families to do together and socialize with our other preschool families. These are not field trips, but rather time for families to choose to participate and meet other families. I encourage you to invite other friends of preschool age children to attend in case they do not subscribe to the preschool blog. I will try to attend some of these events, but it will just be come as you like. Feel free to let me know of other events in the community that we could add to the calendar. Also leave comments if you plan on attending and want to carpool. I will try to send out weeky reminders of the activities.
