Transitioning from Kindergarten to Grade 1 is an important step for our students. To help them feel comfortable in their new class, Kindergarten students spend some time in the Grade 1 class to learn about life in elementary school. They read a story together, talk about homework, desks, and books, and try out the Smartboard.
New things are growing all around FASP! Our campus is green again and our Preschool and PreK students are learning about how plants grow. They planted seeds and have seen the vegetables and flowers growing. Our PreK students also planted flower seeds and decorated planters for Mother’s Day! Students learn to follow directions and care for the earth.
Being “scientific” involves being curious, observing, asking how things happen and learning how to find the answers. For the past few weeks, Pre-K and Kindergarten students have developing an understanding of the properties of air through several simple experiments.
By observing what is happening, using words to describe what they notice, and repeating the action to compare results, they learned that air can move things, takes up space and has mass!
Come out and support FASP on Saturday, December 2nd between 10AM and 5PM!

The Plainsboro Fire Company visited our school today to talk about fire prevention with our students. The assembly started inside with a talk about how fire can be so dangerous and the importance of having an exit plan. Students learned about the gear firefighters wear, and visited their truck. Thank you Fire Station 49!
The week of taste, la semaine du goût in French, is a traditional event in France that started more than 25 years ago to encourage children and adults alike to become more educated about food. It is so successful that it has been created in other countries like Belgium, Switzerland, Romania and even Japan, showing that fighting for the taste is a worldwide passion.This year is the 28th anniversary of the Semaine du Goût.
For this occasion, our Maternelle students will host their first presentation followed by a breakfast tomorrow! Get your taste buds ready for La semaine du gout!
