Huelan's preschool has been great. We were kind of bummed last year when the oldest kids matriculated to Kindergarten and Huelan was the biggest one left in the school, but there soon came a couple of kids about her age and she was able to show them the ropes. The teacher, Ms. Jan, runs it out of her her house, and her house is just 4 houses from ours, which is supremely convenient. We are going to miss it.
On Monday, Huelan went to an assessment appointment at the school she'll be attending next year- Joaquin Miller Elementary, where they have three Kindergarten classes. We met one of the teachers- Ms. Savage, and she took Huelan for her assessment while a parent volunteer led me on a campus tour. I figured that the assessment was just going to be some simple questions designed to help sort the kids who had more academic preschools from the ones who haven't yet learned their letters and figures. Huelan said that there were lots of questions, but she thinks that she "got every one right." So she's either well prepared or delusional.
She was so excited to see her new school. Ms. Savage took her on a mini-tour and she beamed the entire time.
We made a day of it. I took her out of school early for the assessment, and after we went for lunch, candy, and Cinderella in the theater. Pretty good day.
Here are some pics of her preschool from a little while back.
This is one from when I picked her up during nap time.
All the kids love the calendar. She proudly tells us everyday what part she put up.
