Pre-K & Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year



Gingerbread Fun 

The sticky, gooey sweetness of frosting, graham crackers and candy wafted through the halls of the South Haven Early Childhood Center in the South Country Central School District as parents and other caregivers joined the district’s youngest students to craft gingerbread houses. All the visitors and their student-partners needed was a bit of imagination.

The event was a culminating activity for an interdisciplinary unit on the gingerbread man and gingerbread houses, a favorite of young students everywhere. During the week, students read various story versions about the gingerbread man and discussed the similarities and differences in the plots and characters of each book. After cutting out construction paper gingerbread men, the students sorted buttons and placed them in patterns on what would be the gingerbread man’s and woman’s clothes. The students also strengthened their alphabet skills in an alphabet partner activity. Paper gingerbread men were labeled with random letters of the alphabet and students were instructed to find a partner by matching the letters. The favorite activity, however, was decorating their gingerbread houses and nibbling on the delicious candy and frosting that became, not only an essential part of their creations, but memories to last a lifetime.

PTA Fundraiser

The South Haven Early Childhood Center PTA held a fundraiser at Chuck-e-Cheese recently to help the children of South Country Central School District. To motivate families to attend and help with the fundraiser, the PTA provided a pizza party to the class with the most attendees at the event. Mrs. Ernst and Mrs. Milano’s classes were the lucky winners that day! A pizza party commenced a few days after the event. Thank you to the PTA for a fun lunch that day!

Pizza Making

The children of the South Haven Early Childhood Center just completed a unit on healthy eating. Upon the completion of this unit, the pre-k classes were excited to welcome Mr. Iliano from LaMargherita Pizzeria into their classrooms. Mr. Iliano discussed healthy eating and completed a pizza making demonstration. Following the demonstration, each child was able to become a chef for the day and make their own mini pizza! Each child was provided with the necessary ingredients to complete the task, courtesy of Mr. Iliano. They had a fantastic time making their own mini pizza! Directions were given to the parents to continue the process and cook the pizza at home. An organic ELA lesson followed the next day as the children had conversations about how they cooked, shared, and ate their pizza with their families! What a fun and educational way to end a unit!
