DAR supports endeavors in the following three areas: education, patriotism and historical preservation. This award recognized the preschool’s outstanding teaching of patriotism to its students and the staff’s continual recognition of veterans in the community.

Jacque’s Preschool curriculum includes many fun, interactive patriotic lessons and activities throughout the year. Highlights include the students drawing their favorite heroes for “Patriot’s Day,” voting with their own ballots on “Election Day,” and racing in snow games during “Winter Olympics” week. In addition to these lessons, the students learn the “Pledge of Allegiance” and several patriotic songs for their spring programs such as “My Flag,” “The Presidents Song,” and “God Bless America.” The preschool also recognizes veterans at its annual graduation program.
