The Arts4Tots Graduation ceremonies took place Monday and Tuesday this week. The preschoolers made a grand entrance dressed like two Chinese Dragons who shook their heads and moved up and down to the music. Friends and family were able to watch their 3-5 year olds said some patriotic words, and fill them in on various "Did you Know's"... (Did you know we can say our ABCs and 123s? Did you know that we were on Global News this year...? etc) Each graduate was awarded a certificate and a pail of sidewalk chalk, after which they threw their graduation hats up into the air. After hugs and congratulations, all our preschoolers and their families enjoyed a buffet of sweets and goodies, animal balloons, face painting, bubbles, hoola hoops, a bouncer and a dress up photo corner.

Way to go class of 2012! Many of you are now ready for kindergarten. Congratulations!
