Grades Aug 28 - Sept 1

Dear Garden Families,

We had a lovely, and sometimes wet, week in the Grades class.  Thank you for sending your children ready for our wet weather!  While we tend to stay in during heavy rain, there are times when a rain walk is a great experience or we go outside while it is still very wet, so those boots and raincoats are needed.

We enjoyed our final week of our cooking block with Ms. Nina.  The children made and ate pasta and enjoyed their kombucha drink as well.  Starting next week, we will be in the kitchen with Ms. Nina in rotating groups on Mondays and Thursdays.  Please be sure your child has a hairnet of some kind stored in their backpacks. 

Students in grades Three and up chose biography books based on short blurbs describing an event in the famous person’s childhood.  They didn’t know whom they were picking until they got their book, which made it fun and surprising for the children.  We will be sending home master book paper next Thursday.  Please let us know if your child needs a loaner box of block crayons.  Grades One and Two will share in the book report experience starting next month!  

Have a lovely long weekend!

Happy Labor Day,

Ms. Melissa and Ms. Kathee
