The theme for our early release on February 1st was Carnival! We had so much fun getting creative with this because we combined a traditional carnival you would find in the U.S. with the notorious Carnival celebrated annually in Venice, Italy. We made fancy masks, popped popcorn, had our faces painted, and played games with balloons! Here are some pictures.
Our most recent field trip to Boston Bowl included all grades. It was such a blast!
On each early release Thursday, we honor a specific theme. Our most recent one was festival of Lights. We had all sorts of fun activities planned for the kids including a firework art project and a glow stick light show in the gym. It was an awesome day!
Holiday season is officially here! Both sites used the last week before Thanksgiving break to prepare for our annual Feast. The Kindergarteners decorated the table cloths and the older kids used strips of paper to dress up the serving tables with descriptions of what they were thankful for. It was great to really slow down before we ate and as a center reflect on all the things in our lives to be grateful for. We're one lucky group!
