Celebrating the littlest of learners

Investing in high-quality early childhood education and educators will make America brighter, stronger and more competitive, according to the National Association for the Education of Young Children. To that end, Sacred Heart Catholic School of Shawano recently celebrated the association’s “Week of the Young Child” April 16-20, to help support its mission.

Though Sacred Heart’s 3-year-old preschool and 4-year-old kindergarten students were off school Monday due to a blizzard, they still got to celebrate Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday and Family Fun Friday, under the instruction of teachers Stacey Dickmann and Michelle Powers.

Friday was a highlight of the week when nearly 70 percent of preschool and 4K families enjoyed breakfast, all-school Mass, classroom exploration, snacks and a music and movement activity in the gym.

A big thank you goes out to the teachers, parents, guardians and special guests who helped Sacred Heart Catholic School celebrate this week for the youngest of learners.
