WEST LAFAYETTE – Parents of Ridgewood preschoolers were invited to a luncheon in the Ridgewood preschool class at Ridgewood Elementary on Monday, Dec. 21. Each year, the two preschool groups take turns giving a Thanksgiving and a Christmas luncheon for their parents the last day of school before break. This year, the Monday and Wednesday class prepared the Christmas program while the Tuesday and Thursday group had already given their parents a Thanksgiving luncheon.

The kids performed songs for the parents under the direction of teacher Carolyn Wilson, who has been teaching at the school district since 1994, before lunch was served. In addition to songs, the kids also showed their parent how they learn on the classroom smart board and also performed short skits. The students range in age from three to five.

After being entertained by the students, lunch was served and consisted of covered dishes provided by the parents.

“This lunch is to promote community involvement with the parents and give them the opportunity to observe what their students do during a portion of their day,” said Wilson.

It was also announced during the luncheon that a second preschool class will be starting on Jan. 12, 2016. So far, 20 students have registered and the class is still looking to fill four empty spots. The class will be a split class with students coming either Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. The new class is funded through a grant for which the district applied.
