April 22-26, 2019

Spring weather is finally here and we have been enjoying playing outside as much as possible!

Charity is so happy to be outside!

Nora and Lily were trying to catch some moths.

Marcus and Scarlett - just hanging out!

Foster and Blaine were having a catch.

Mira loves the slide!

Austin and Kellan were working on their balancing skills.

Vincent was playing soccer.

Over the past several weeks, we have been working on an author study on Todd Parr. Todd has written and illustrated over 40 children's books that are full of brightly colored pictures and wonderful messages for children. The Pre-K children love his stories and have enjoyed listening to them all! The students did a wonderful job discussing the similarities between the books. You can learn more about Todd Parr here.

We took a vote on our favorite Todd books. Surprisingly, there was not one favorite in the class - the votes were spread out over all the books we had. Take a look at our results:

We even transformed one of our boards into a "Todd" book, It's Okay To Be Different. The students created a self-portrait - Todd Parr style. We are so impressed by their creativity and the uniqueness of each portrait!

Important information:

  • On Tuesday, April 30 at 7:00 pm, we will be holding our State of the Academy presentation in the MPR. Hope to see you there!
  • The Early Childhood Celebration will be on Wednesday, May 15, at 8:30 am in the MPR. We are hoping that all parents will be able to join us! The celebration should last approximately an hour total. We will be sending home more information next week.

A big thank you to Mr. Ennen for being our very first Mystery Reader this morning!
