Pre-K Counts Class of 2012

Many proud family members watched as their four- and five-year-olds "graduated" from the Pre-K Counts program this week at Lehigh Valley Children's Centers. The stepping up ceremonies varied between centers, but one theme remained the same; these students now have a good foundation for learning, better preparing them for kindergarten.

Dressed in their best, these precocious preschoolers bravely sang in front of the large audiences made up of moms, dads, siblings, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. As each child stepped up to receive their awards and recognition, families and staff cheered them on.

Throughout the year, the Pre-K boys and girls learned reading, math, and science. They also practiced everyday skills like paying attention, following directions, and getting along with others. Introduced to new and exciting adventures, the students experienced pumpkin patches, the Crayola Experience, the Lehigh Valley Zoo, and many other fun, educational field trips.

During the ceremony, the LVCC teachers tried their best to hold back the tears. Watching their students blossom since this past fall, the teachers keep a special place in their hearts for each child. They know that their students will be well-prepared as they head for a bigger adventure.... kindergarten.

Congratulations Class of 2012!
