Stephens College Children's School wraps up year with party

May 21, 2015

The Stephens College Children’s School today wrapped up the academic year with an end-of-school party featuring Kona Ice and bounce houses.

This was the second year for the event, which began last year when the school won “Parent’s Pick” through a Hulafrog contest.

“We had so much fun last year, we wanted to bring it back,” teacher Taylor Midgley said. “We don’t have a graduation for our preschool, so this is just a way to let families come together one last time before the year is up.”

It’s been an exciting year for the preschool through fifth-grade. This year, students assisted with beautification of the property around the school, planting rose bushes and working in the new raised flowerbeds.

Students this year went on field trips to a hospital, art gallery and post office. In December, the school got a special visit from Tony McGeorge, president of the Missouri Military Academy and a former Stephens College nursery pupil himself.

“It’s been a great year,” Midgley said. “We hope everyone has a wonderful summer, and we’ll be ready to welcome returning and new students again when school begins in the fall.”
