We'd like to highlight an outstanding staff member here at PARC, Melissa Cercone 🎵⁠ ⁠ Melissa is the Music and Art Specialist in PARC's Discovery Learning Center, and teaches Early Intervention Music and Early Intervention Art programs. During her classes, Melissa uses different art mediums, colorful visuals, dancing, and group singing as tools to teach gross and fine motor skills, social behavior, creativity, and to build confidence in all of the children who attend PARC. ⁠ ⁠ Melissa also assists with PARC's Inspired Choir, where she helps teach the choir inspirational songs and the corresponding sign language to go along with the lyrics. Her passion for PARC is irrefutable. ⁠ ⁠ Join us in thanking her for her commitment to PARC! ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #parcfl #specialneeds #employeehighlight #discoverylearningcenter #earlyintervention #music #art #confidence #preschool #preschoolteacher #employeeappreciation #grateful #thankful #disabilityawareness #developmentaldisabilities #stpete #singer #choir #employeerecognition #grossmotorskills #finemotorskills #creative

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at PARC 🎁⁠ ⁠ Last week our Discovery Learning Center kicked off the holiday season with their annual Christmas Pageant. ⁠ ⁠ Each year, the students and teachers in the Discovery Learning Center choreograph and practice holiday numbers for the children to perform in front of their families, friends, and peers. This year's highlights included a Frosty the Snowman dance and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer sung by one of the classes. ⁠ ⁠ Check the link in our bio to view photos from this Christmas Pageant!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #parcfl #preschool #specialneeds #inclusive #preschoollife#preschooldays #christmas #holidays #holidayseason #winter #holidayshow #snowmen #elves #elf #jinglebells #inclusivepreschool #tistheseason
