VPK is the place to be…

Greetings families & friends!

     During Jewish Studies we celebrated Camp Fun Day! We sang camp songs and we had a read aloud from the new Rabbi. He read an interactive book about camp to us…it was called No Baths at Camp!  The  book talks about all of the fun and exciting things that happen while you are at camp.  All of the students favorite repeating line in the story was “No Baths at Camp!!!”  🙂

  Everyone was surprised when we had another Mystery Reader in the same day, Julianna’s dad read the book Rainbow Fish! It was a wonderful book that had all of the students excited, about the different changes that happened to the fish! Thank you to Julianna’s dad, for enlightening us with this precious read aloud! 🙂
