BRIGHTON — The first day of school may seem scary for most but not for the Brighton preschoolers. On May 23, 14 preschoolers got a chance to ease their fears of the first day of big school. They spent the entire day acting like kindergartners to help prepare them for school in the fall.
Arriving at Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School by the big yellow bus, the youngsters hopped off in excitement and formed a line where guidance counselor Jeanine Gran welcomed them to the school.
Gran introduced the little ones to the kindergarten teachers: Melody Webber, Betty Tillis and Kimberly Toms.
The pre-k kids were then divided into three groups to join current kindergarten students for a day of elementary school experiences.
The youngsters participated in classroom activities, ate lunch and went to recess just like any other kindergartner. They also toured the school’s facilities including the main office, lunchroom, culture room and library.
