Dear Parents,
     This week our travels took our students to Colombia.  I really loved seeing the special art projects and cooking activities that some kids did with regard to their studies of Colombia and its culture.  Next week our kids will jet off to Japan!  Let’s see what great things they learn about.  Our school got a special cooking grant for the second half of the summer called Common Threads.  Our Brown and Orange Door classes started learning about healthy cooking and participated in a few cooking classes this week.  They will continue to use this curricula for the rest of the summer.  Those two classes also went on a great off site field trip to Bird Bowl.  They learned about numbers as they bowled down the pins and said their ending scores. Our water play kids were also happy that it waited to rain until after water play this Friday.  It is proving to be a favorite time of the week.
     As our school is becoming recognized as a model school with regard to our healthy initiative, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) will be conducting a study with our families and staff.  They will be conducting interviews and information session with a few staff members and 15 parents.  For parents, there is a financial incentive to participate.  Parents who participate in the 90 minute presentation will get a $50 Visa or MasterCard gift card for your time.  We will also allow your currently enrolled child to stay here at school while you are in the discussion group.  The only criteria is that you have a child ages 2-5.  If you would like to sign up to in any of the groups below, please see someone at the front desk.  Sessions will take place from 5:00-6:30 pm on the following days.
