“Our pre-school students are so excited to participate in a variety of 'Drama Activities' in order to set in motion their social and emotional learning. During Drama Time, our students will use costumes, masks, emotional dice and imaginative play to depict different feelings and how to respond positively to those feelings. Also, our students will have lots of opportunities to explore different cultures through books, dramatic play, food and the arts.”
