Preschool Palooza Night

April 5, 2023

With over 200 people in attendance, we’d say Preschool Palooza was a big hit! Families were able to visit with Sparky the Fire Dog, and Thea the pet therapist. Hector Morales from the Des Moines Symphony serenaded them with violin music and also taught the children how to play an instrument! Turner Construction showed them how to safely build a tower. Students were able to create artistic masterpieces, discover how to make raisins dance, plant flower seeds, learn about library programs, the 529 College Savings Program plus much more. Thank you to all of our community partners for making this an amazing event for our youngest learners.

As part of the annual Week of the Young Child celebration, The Little Rams Preschool will be hosting their Preschool Palooza Night on Tuesday, April 4 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Clay Elementary. This event will include a special presentation by Blank Park Zoo from 6:30 – 7:00 pm.

Please join us for this fabulous fun-filled evening!
