March was full of excitement and adventure with fun events such as Dr. Suess's birthday, Saint Patrick's Day, and our African Savanna theme. The children made enjoyable and colorful art to celebrate each occasion. Our classrooms were decorated with shamrocks and rainbows, Dr.Suess's Thing 1 & 2, Lions and Elephants, and many more. Definitely,some good fridge-worthy artwork to proudly display.

It was a nice time to build on their friendships and remind one another the value of love and kindness. The children were so happy to give valentines out to their friends and share in good food. It is a great learning opportunity for the children to learn the value of giving.
Our enrichment program after 3:00pm is an important part of each day. Every day the children are exposed to art, music, cooking, computers and Spanish. Some of this month’s activities included Japanese art, music from the Asian culture, Spanish words for friendship greetings, making friendship trail mix and focusing on math, language and reading using the computers.

Hello Parents, November was a fun filled month with many different events and activities. We started off with our Parent teacher conferences. We hoped that the teachers were able to answer the parent’s questions and concerns. Since our teachers spend a lot of time with the children, we hoped they were able to share each child’s individual growth and learning patterns for a successful school year. With the sun setting sooner, we’ve ended up splitting our friends into two classrooms. Room 5 will still be our closing room, but Room 3 was added to accommodate our Pre-Primary and Primary merge. In your child’s files, everyone received See’s Candy order forms, as stated in our previous emails, classes that sell the most will have a pizza party in the new year, we will start distributing the candies on Dec. 20th.
