Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center Sets the Stage!

What do you get when you have 305 students, 54 staff members, 6 buses, and a stage play called A Year With Frog and Toad?” A DAY TO REMEMBER FOR EVERYONE!

Around eleven a.m. on Thursday, March 9, excitement exuded from the doors of the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center! Students scurried in their lines to six different buses. Chatting the whole way to the theater through scenic Southern Chester County the students were buzzing about barns, animals, landmarks, and more! As we pulled into downtown Wilmington, Delaware, the students gasped at all of the different buildings, pointed out the cool vehicles, and waved to visitors they saw as we reached our destination.

Students, teachers, and staff were escorted into the theater by the ushers. As the students entered, their eyes were filled with amazement as they gazed at the majestic Copeland Hall that seats 1,200. Sounds of upbeat music, melodic conversation between Frog and Toad, and laughter from young theater goers filled the air. It wasn’t long before students from all over joined in on the show by clapping along to the music. Students were mesmerized by the actors, their roles, and their performance. Students could be seen clapping, singing along, and dancing in their plush, fold up chairs.

This day is one that students will remember for the rest of their lives. This adventure will long live in the memories of the adults as well. It will be known as, “The day Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center went to the theater!”

U-6 Solves a Mystery!

The 100th day of school is always a festive event at the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center. This year, students in Miss Jennifer Daveler’s kindergarten classroom had an extra special day. They walked to the classroom as kindergartners and they entered as detectives!

Miss Daveler gathered the students in the library and gave them their mission.

“Boys and girls, Zero the Hero came to our school today to help us make 100. He was in our classroom helping me get ready and I turned around and he was gone! I have missions we need to complete in order to earn clues! Each clue will get us closer to finding Zero the Hero!”

As students completed their missions, they earned a word. Each word was a missing piece to sentence where Zero could be found.

The sentence they completed read, “Zero the Hero is where you like to play.” At the end of the day students found their missing hero, Zero, making 100th day a day students will not soon forget!

Mrs. Ramagnano’s Kindergartners are Thankful!

Thanksgiving came to life in Mrs. Jeri Ramagnano’s Kindergarten class in November. Students created clothing, food, and learned about the ways of the Wampanoag people and the pilgrims who sat down together for the First Thanksgiving.

Students created a mural of the wetus that the Wampanoag lived in and houses that the pilgrims lived in. After the work was done, students sat down to a feast where students had the opportunity to try new foods such as sage.
