Pre-K students at Kids Unlimited learned more than just their shapes and colors last week. On April 14, Birmingham Elementary Principal Tiffany Doolan and School Counselor Jaimee Granberry attended the school’s Pre-K Signing Day, visiting with students and talking about what life in kindergarten is like.

Doolan and Granberry spoke to the children about what is expected of them in their first year at “Big School,” and what the kids can expect to encounter and learn.

“The Pre-K class was very excited to hear about the new and exciting things they’ll be doing next year and in the years to come,” said Administrative Assistant Madeline Timsah. “After a question and answer session, Mrs. Doolan and Mrs. Granberry stuck around to witness and assist the kids in signing their Pre-K Pledge.”

Timsah said many hugs and smiles were exchanged.

“Students showed off some of their skills like counting, reciting the alphabet, adding and subtracting and more,” Timsah said. “Ms. Doolan was impressed and also excited for them.”

The event is just a small portion of the activities Pre-K students experienced during “Senior Week”. On Monday, kids were treated to snowcones, Wednesday the class planted a seed and made a wish for their future and Thursday they participated in a balloon release. Balloons had their kindergarten goals attached to them. Friday wrapped up the week with a class picnic.

Timsah said she feels the events help students feel a sense of achievement.

“It celebrates the hard work they’ve completed,” she said. “Many of our students have been with us for a long time and our goal is to ensure we are sending them off filled with knowledge to be successful. I feel if they are familiar with the work ethics and expectations, it is easier for them to dream bigger. They know there are people that support them and expect great things to happen.”
