• Welcome to Anoka-Hennepin Schools Preschool!

    Anoka-Hennepin Schools Preschool classes are taught by licensed teachers who will monitor your child's progress and development throughout the year. We are excited to prepare our students for kindergarten and school!

    My name is Dawn Hetrick. I am a mom to five children. I love to spend time with my family, read and walk my dog. This is my eighth year working at Evergreen Park and thirteenth in Anoka-Hennepin Schools Preschool program. It is so fun to watch the children grow, learn and gain confidence! Welcome to Room 109!

    • Large Group and/or Circle time: Students learn to follow direction
    • Storytime: Students learn literacy skills
    • Choice Time: Students "play with purpose," as they practice independence, social and fine motor skills
    • Clean-Up Time: Students practice shared responsibility and organization
    • Small-Group Time: Students focus on specific learning targets with teacher support and direction
    • Dismissal/Good-Bye: The teacher establishes student focus and prepares students for independence outside the classroom
