Director Greeting

Dear Families and Weld Re-8 Community,

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing Winter break. We are thrilled to have our preschoolers back with us and to continue our learning together. I am excited to share the January pilot kick off of a new math curriculum, Engage Eureka Math. We are eager to introduce the curriculum and instructional strategies and we anticipate important growth for our preschool students in math! Please see below for other program and calendar updates and please reach out at any time.

Family Stay to Learn & Play

January 18th is the next Family Stay to Learn & Play! Any parent/caregiver who would like to be involved in this learning time will need to complete a volunteer packet and be cleared as a volunteer. Packets may be picked up from the office.

Little Trappers Preschool will be partnering with Fort Lupton High School to offer preschool students a field trip opportunity to the planetarium at the high school on January 30th. Additional information and field trip permission forms will be sent home in Wednesday folders.
