 This school year, we are offering students the option of attending our Explorers Lunch Bunch, which meets from 12:00-1:00pm immediately following our regular preschool morning. This is an optional add-on class for concurrently enrolled EXPLORERS students who are ready for a 4-hour preschool experience. Students bring their own lunch and spend an additional hour of their day exploring nature, playing, socializing with their classmates, and engaging in small-group activities. 


***REGISTRATION OPENS AT 9:00am ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th.*** We will only be able to accommodate a MAXIMUM OF 12 STUDENTS PER DAY in the Explorers Lunch Bunch, so please register early! 

Two Classes are Available:

 · Monday/Friday Class (for 3-day and 5-day Explorers students)

· Tuesday/Thursday Class (for 2-day and 5-day Explorers students)

· 5-Day Explorers students may register for one or both classes. 

· There will be NO Explorers Lunch Bunch on Wednesdaysdue to Bellevue School District early dismissal.

· Lunch Bunch is not available for Junior Explorers students.
