Hi Parents,

Happy weekend.

Please sign up for a November Conference at your earliest convenience.  These meetings will be virtual and can be accessed through our daily Zoom Meeting link.  This is an important opportunity for us to talk about transitions, progress to date, and goals for the year.  I look forward to our conversations.

Thank you,

Hi Parents~
      Our daily practice with breathing and focus is deepening thanks to Gabriel, our mindfulness expert.  We encourage children to share tips and practices they are learning. I see it working in school everyday. Encourage the practice at home.   

Jesse Winer showed up just in time to further explore this mind-body connection.  He read two picture books about the brain and the children were captivated. 







We also had a wonderful visit from Pam Hanlon.  Mystery Readers are the best!

Take care~
Gretchen

Hi Parents~
Thank you to David Green and Karen Morrison for sharing some of their favorite stories. We love reading, writing, and listening to stories (or poems or jokes!). Please sign up to be a mystery reader or contact me to schedule a time that might work better for you. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends are welcome. The children really love it.








Thank you for your continued support.  Let's stay healthy!
Take care~
Gretchen

A week in pictures...

Hi Parents!
     Many students captured last week's highlights in their Monthly Message so these images should complement their words nicely.  
  • The iMovie production teams were assisted by our 8th grade directors and the results were award winning.  
  • Instructors from the Discovery Museum never disappoint.  Barbara covered so much information about states of matter in a fun and engaging manner.  
  • Rahul and Pari ended the week with a playful rendition of Oliver Jeffer's book The Incredible Book Eating Boy.  Enjoy!
