Dear Preschool Families,

This week we are excited to introduce our new Jackrabbit Lead Teacher, Mrs. Ofelia Thompson. She has many years of experience working with preschool-aged children. Please take a moment to chat with her and welcome her to our school. In addition to being very knowledgeable, she has a big heart and a warm smile.
