December 11, 2017

We would like to start our last 2017 newsletter by wishing every family a great holiday season! For the ones who are traveling we hope you have a safe trip and for the ones who are expecting families in town we hope you enjoy every single moment with them. We’ve had a wonderful 2017 year with our students; we’ve learned so many things so far and we wish 2018 brings us many exciting moments and many more lessons to learn!

Important lessons we learned this past week:

  • Our kindergartener students finished their unit on the pond and amphibians and are ready to start talking about the farm and insects.
  • Several of our younger students have been really busy working on making The Short Bead Stair; such work teaches them linear counting (1-10) and is also the foundation for learning teens and ten numbers.
  • Our students have been working on new art works related to the holidays; this week they will be introduced to new art concepts such as finger painting and dot painting as well.
  • This week our students will practice for the winter program a few more times; they are so excited and ready to show you what they’ve learned for these past weeks. We are so proud of their work and the enthusiasm they showed every time they practiced!

Very important things to remember:

  • Our winter program is this coming Friday December 15th at 9:30 am. We would love to have our students at school no later than 9:00 if possible to start preparing for this important event; we appreciate your help on this day!
  • Thank you to all the families who have provided snack this 2017; we have been blessed with all the delicious snacks you have sent and for that, we are very thankful.

Happy holidays and a blessed New Year!
