Welcome to Mrs. McPherson's Class!

We are so excited for your child to join our full day pre-k class!  This is my 16th year teaching and I am confident it is going to be a great one!  Our staff wants to make this a positive learning experience for your child's first year in school.  Education is truly a partnership between home and school and we want to do the best job continuing the education you have started.  Thank you for sharing your child with us.
