January 20-24, 2020

Have you heard?

The Pre-K and Kindergarten students are organizing a coat drive!

The boys and girls made posters to hang in the classroom and around school to remind everyone to bring in new and gently used coats for men, women, and children to benefit families in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Please bring in your coats by Monday, January 27, 2020! Help us help others!

Pre-K and Kindergarten students have also been working together in science class!

We watched a Sid the Science Kid video called "Discovering Darkness." The boys and girls learned about the difference between light and dark, reasons why not to be afraid of the dark, and how to use their other senses to help them "discover" something they encounter in the dark.

The students were partnered together - one child was blindfolded and the other chose an object for the first child to guess. The students were able to ask questions and use their sense of touch to determine what the object was. 

Then, the students took turns entering the "cave of darkness" and used great adjectives to describe what they saw and how they were feeling. Even the teachers got in on the fun!

Looking ahead:

  • Hope to see you at Family Fun Night tomorrow at HCA from 5:00-8:00 pm.
  • Show and tell will be on Monday, January 27. The topic will be something that begins with /f/.
  • Save the date: Parent Visitation Day is Friday, February 7. Please RSVP. We are planning a fun morning for you and your child!
  • The HCA Auction is Saturday, February 29. Click here for more information. 

Have a great weekend!
