Son's ahead of his preschool-mates. Should I be concerned?

My son is in a pre-K program for 3 year olds at a local charter school for 3 hours a day. The teacher sent home a break-down of all the stuff they'll be learning this year. My kid knows all the stuff already. Should I be worried about him being forced to re-learn stuff he learned over a year ago? Will he be arrogant, bored, frustrated? Will he pretend not to know?

He's getting a lot of great social stuff and learning how to be in a line, follow instructions, sit still, etc. It's great, the teachers are great, there are kids from 5 different language backgrounds in there, pretty great all-around.
I *kind of* want to ask the teacher but I'm aware of the "my boy is SO special" tone of the question and I'd like to avoid that.
PreK-3 will learn this year: colors, shapes, counting, letter names/sounds, sight words, etc.
