A Week of Shows!

Hi Families,

I hope you all had a good weekend! We had our last ski race weekend and it was lots of fun despite a lot of pea soup on Saturday. I hope you were able to get outside despite the “in-between season” weather we had all weekend. We’ve been tracking “lion” and “lamb” weather this month in our calendar area. It has been a little tricky to say the least! Most days, we’ve had to pick both characters to represent our weather – so changeable!

This week allowed us to practice being a great audience – TWICE! The show at the Flynn on Tuesday morning – “Elephant and Piggie: We are In a Show!” was fantastic! The children were literally on the edge of their seats and were hooting and cheering at the end of the performance. It was truly magic to behold. The show was excellent. What a super way to end our Flynn Season this year.

On Wednesday morning, we watched a show put on by “Puppets in Education” which highlighted the topic of cultural diversity. It was engaging and interesting and the puppets were really impressive. If you want more information about the show, please visit the following website: http://www.puppetsineducation.org

Many thanks to our amazing school counselor, Amy Johnston, for arranging this special opportunity.

As you will note from the photos below – Forest Friday was another snowy one! The children had a BLAST using snow to build and to create. They also were excited to uncover the Fairy Houses and to enjoy some hot chocolate around the fire! I have a feeling the snow will be replaced by MUD this coming Friday – so – BE PREPARED!

Finally, we have Literacy Game Night this Wednesday and we hope you can come! The night is a great chance to learn some new games to play with your family. The Project READ committee sponsors the evening each year. We have a yummy meal cooked by Doreen, play some games that highlight literacy skills in a fun way, and then you have a chance to win one of the games to take home! The event is on 3/29 and begins with dinner at 5:45! Hope to see you there!
