Welcome to Alton Central School Prekindergarten!! 

My name is Mrs. Rees, and I am so happy to welcome you and your family into my classroom and our program. I know you may be feeling EXCITED about coming to school and some of you may be feeling NERVOUS.  Let me share a bit about myself to help you feel more CALM. 

First let’s take a deep breath in and SMELL THE FLOWERS and BLOW OUT THE CANDLE. 

Feeling more calm???  I am.  This is something we do every day to get ready to start our day..  

I have been teaching PreK at ACS for many years and it is my favorite thing in the whole world.  We get to play every day.  Our classroom has a Block area, a Pretend area, a Group Meeting space, an Art/ Creative area, a Sensory table, and a quiet space where we can relax to read or make a puzzle.  Every day we play, create, sing, read, draw, and learn new things.

When I am not teaching, I live in Meredith with my pets, Tubbles and Lexi, and my family.  I enjoy listening to all kinds of music, reading and doing Sudoku puzzles. I also spend lots of time working around my house.
