Class of 2031 Dances the Night Away!

In late May, Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center students and their parents entered the school’s gym to find that it had been transformed into their favorite board game, Candyland. The scene was set for a wonderful family dance experience!

Lollipops lined the walls, gingerbread houses adorned the gym, and there was even a life-size game board! The kindergarteners twirled, whirled, and sang their hearts out as they made their way around the sweet scenery. Students were able to sit on Gumdrop Mountain, take photos in front of a Candyland backdrop, and hold up signs declaring they are members of the class of 2031!

The dance was all the buzz on Monday at school!

Student is Promoted to Principal

Leaving a with a fabulous new purse is how most people see themselves a winner at a Designer Bag Bingo event. For one Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center family, their prize came with a lot of responsibility – an entire school.

Abigail Elia, in Mrs. Lawson’s Kindergarten class, would become the Principal for the Morning. Thanks to her mother placing tickets in the raffle bag and a little March luck, Abigail had a morning to remember. She started off her day reading the morning announcements, then gave a tour of our school to an incoming family, she led our April spirit assembly, performed walk-throughs with Mrs. Reynolds in different classrooms, and ended the day by doing the goodbye announcements for the students.

It was a busy yet memorable day for Abigail who may one day lead her own school teaching students to love learning.
