We’re gonna learn so many great new things, how caterpillars turn into butterflies, how to count money...and we’re gonna take some great adventures in reading.

Mother:  Would it be okay if I sit in for just a few minutes?

Teacher 1:  Of course!  Parents are always welcome.  We need you as our partners.
