Pre-K Graduation

As the summer is ending we have a few amazing kids leaving us. They gearing up to enter the world of kindergarten. This was the perfect time to have a celebration for all their hard work throughout the year. We invited their families to come and witness our Pre-K class receive their certificate of completion at The Academy. We are so proud of all their hard work and all the help Ms. Demesha has been to them throughout the year.
