  • Congrats to the August Apple of our Eye: Ms. Yadira!

    We are excited to announce the Apple of Our Eye for the month of August, Ms. Yadira (Ms. D)! Yadira has really enjoyed her time working in Camp Percy 3 this Summer. Ms. D is known for having a quiet, but very upbeat presence in the classroom. She has a fun and energetic bunch of students in Camp Percy 3, and they respond very well to Ms. D’s calming nature. One of Ms. D’s greatest gifts in the classroom has been her ability to “enhance” the curriculum by adding interactive and engaging activities to the learning centers. You can always tell what Camp Percy 3 is learning about just by looking around the room. We love that she takes the time to add such well thought out enhancements to her classroom. Congratulations Ms. D…We appreciate you!! Love, Primrose School of Old Orchard
