Mariyah's School Picture
So I know many of you have asked about how Mariyah was able to go to kindergarten before she was 5 since her birthday is in October and the cut off date is that by August 31st you must be 5. Well crismon Elementary has this amazing program for those children who turn 5 after August 31st. She goes to pre-kindergarten half day Mon-Fri and she LOVES it.
Her teacher has taught Kindergarten for 30 years and retired and came back to teach pre-kindergarten. She is an incredible teacher and Mariyah is learning sooo much. So she really is in kindergarten but they have to call it pre-kindergarten and next year she will go to ALL DAY kindergarten. What is so neat is that Mariyah's teacher taught my siblings when they were in kindergarten. I think her school pictures turned out very cute. Although Mariyah has her hyper side she is really sweet and a great sister to Brooklyn.
