Greendell, Young Fives and Transitional Kindergarten

For the Young Fives and Transitional Kindergarten programs at Greendell in the 2020-21 school year, generous donations from parents and community members have provided $32,766 which will be used in our classrooms to:

  • Help fund our Music and Movement Programs that engage children in the performing arts through self-expression while building children’s gross motor skills, group engagement and social skills.
  • Pay for invaluable hands-on learning enrichment such as: Science Excursions to Hidden Villa, animal science with the Junior Museum and Zoo, and Star Lab.
  • Pay for an instructional aide in Young Fives to provide another helping set of hands and small group instruction.
  • Fund 25% of manipulatives and materials for hands-on experiences related to art, science, and math.
