Snakes Slither at Calmar Pre-school

Pipestone Flyer

This is Lukas Turta holding ‘Monty’ the Python

    Snakes slithered sleekly to see our students at the Calmar Preschool on May 2nd. The children had been hissing with excitement for weeks in anticipation of this fun filled day! A presenter from Butterfly Wings shared fun facts and helped each student hold or pet the snakes and reptiles. The kids had no fears and were eager to hold or touch our special guests. Butterfly Wings also brought us butterfly kits, and the students are watching each day as the caterpillars make their magnificent transformation into butterflies. We are hoping to release the butterflies at the preschool graduation May 26th. It has been an exceptional year, the future looks bright!!

     The Calmar Preschool presents a variety of activities to intrigue young minds as they are learning and exploring this wonderful world. We are eagerly preparing for our big move to the Calmar Elementary School, where we see opportunities beyond the horizons. We have expanded to hold a new 3 year old program that runs one 2 hour class per week. We also run a two-day per week 4 year old program, and will be holding a registration night on june 18th @ 7pm. For more information please contact Cassandra Karabonik @ 780-985-3312.
