In February Mr. Chris came in to teach our children about funky music and the drums. The cool beat from the funky music was a great way to start the morning and made everyone feel like moving. Each kid had a chance to take a turn trying out Mr. Chris's drum kit - FUN. Every Wed when we didn't have Mr. Chris we have Miss Chris the Jefferson Township Librarian. She reads to our kindergarteners books that are either seasonal or having to do with themes we are working on in class.
We also celebrated Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day and President's Day by doing colorings, handwritings and reading books about the holidays to the children. We also celebrated Mardi Gras by making Mardi Gras masks and having a parade on the playground while playing special instruments. Picture day was a huge success and we saw beautiful smiles all day long!!
Thank you to all who participated in the Gertrude Hawk chocolate fundraiser. Stay tuned for improvements that we will be making to our outside playground space this spring.
