Primary C Weekly Note

Dear Families,

There was much to celebrate today in Primary C. Right after lunch and some play time in the South Street garden, students read their information articles to rapt audiences of Preschoolers. We all gave our time at the ECEC a thumbs up. Comments from the group included “I was a bit nervous,” “It felt good to finish my work,” “I felt really good about it,” “It felt nice to have people listening to you,” and “They were really impressed.” Afterward, we celebrated by relaxing and watching a Mr. Rogers Neighborhood episode about friendship.

Our neighborhood study progressed with decisions made about our “classroom neighborhood” name and what kind of houses we wanted to include in it. We looked at pictures of several Philadelphia house and apartment styles and shared what kind of residence we live in. Maybe as you travel around your neighborhood and the city this weekend, you could count how many different kinds of houses and apartment buildings you notice.

Save the dates:

  • March Learning Celebration “open houses”:  Monday, 3/13, Tuesday, 3/14, and Wednesday, 3/15, from 7:55 - 8:15 a.m.. You do not need to sign up for a particular date or even let us know when you're coming. Just show up with your child, and he or she will take care of the rest! If you are unable to stop by during these dates and times, reach out to us, and we will find a time that works.
  • Primary Unit Chorus concert: Friday, 3/17 at 9:00 a.m.
  • Primary’s last Learning Celebration of the year will be on Wednesday, May 17, 11:00-1:45, at The Schuylkill Center. The rain date is Wednesday, May 31.

Have a great, long weekend.

All best,

Jennifer and Jane
