Portfolios are an integral part of the Bixby experience. In preschool, each child’s group time teacher spends countless hours collecting artwork, documenting developmental milestones, and capturing the uniqueness of each child’s Bixby experience throughout the year. These beautiful gifts are just as much for the children as they are for the parents, as they are heavily loaded with pictures, so each child understands what each page is about through visual representation. In Preschool, these books start with the children when they begin Preschool, and leave with them when they graduate, so most cover 2-3 years of development and experiences. You can often hear children ask to look through their portfolios during the day as an open activity.
Last night as families arrived, the children showed their parents where to find their portfolio. The families then found a cozy spot inside or outside to look over their work. It was a special time for the children to sit with their families and share all that they have done and enjoyed about school that year.
With the beautiful weather, we were able to have many of our families join us outdoors where the sun was shining bright! Many children got to play in preschool yard with classmates, siblings, and parents after taking those quiet moments of reflection with their families. It was a very happy social environment filled with laughter and memories of the growth of our students. We thank you for taking the time to join us, and for being apart of our wonderful community.
