Littlest Shamrocks get out and enjoy spring

By Arie Anderson

Tiny/Little Shamrocks Preschool Teacher

Spring has sprung and Pacelli’s preschool classes had the privilege of visiting SuperFresh Produce Garden and Bakery Center in Austin to learn more about how plants grow.

After focusing on plants and flowers in class for the past few weeks, our preschool students were truly able to put their knowledge to the test as they toured the garden center. The preschoolers were able to make connections by taking what they have learned in the classroom and applying it to the variety of plants they saw within the greenhouses.

Ezekiel Renteria, a student in kindergarten prep, gets up close and personal with a flat of flowers.

In addition to the vibrant tour the staff provided for us, we were also able to enjoy cookies fresh from the bakery, and even plant a flower just in time for the perfect Mother’s Day gift! The staff at SuperFresh were exceptional tour guides who welcomed us with an abundance of smiles and countless bits of information to enhance our students’ learning and understanding. Our students are able to flourish further into their educational endeavors when they are provided with hands-on opportunities for growth such as this.

Pacelli preschool registration is open for all students ages three, four, and five. We have an array of programs to fit your family’s schedule and meet your child’s educational needs in a strong academic, engaging, nurturing and faith-filled environment. Stop in to Pacelli Catholic Schools today for a tour and to register your child to begin their journey towards a love of learning and a love of God!
