Primary C Weekly Note

Dear Primary C Families,

What a show! We were so proud of our little performers at this morning’s spring concert. It’s no easy feat to memorize music, words, and movement, be able to identify feeling nervous and/or excited, and then perform to a roomful of family and friends. The Primary kids were poised, energized, focused, and so happy to see your warm smiles.

Our week was short, but very full. Ilana, Noa F’s mom, came to talk about a documentary that she currently is working on. She showed us a preview of her film about Glen Echo Amusement Park in 1960 and thoughtfully led our students in a discussion of segregation, picket lines, and the power of people of all ages working together for change.

This week we offered a “teaser” about our next unit of study: amphibians! Students came up with a healthy list of what they already know. We look forward to launching this study the week we return from spring break. During break, you might think as a family about what you know and want to know about amphibians. We’ll be heading back to the Schuylkill Center on Wednesday, April 5, when we return from spring break. Be sure to pack a trashless lunch and water bottle, as well as making sure your child wears long sleeves, pants, and even hats if possible.

Have a wonderful spring break!

Jennifer and Jane
