Mrs. Moore Pre-Kindergarten Class

My Name is Mrs. Jennie Moore and I have been teaching for 22 years.  Over this time I have truly come to love teaching Pre-K.  It is inspiring to me to watch the growth of my students over the course of the year.  I have a BA in Fine Arts from Molloy, a MA in Art Therapy from Hofstra, and a MS in Education in Early Childhood and Childhood from Molloy as well.

We are going to have lots of fun learning this year.  We have already been busy getting acquainted at school and learning what our routine will be.  We started to our specials and are having fun in computer, library, music, and gym!


Our specials schedule is as follows:

Monday:  Computer
Tuesday:  Library 
Wednesday:  Music
Thursday:  Gym
Friday:  Gym

Please remember to have your child return their book by Tuesday mornings so they can take a new book out that day.
Please make sure to wear sneakers for gym.
