Primary D Weekly Note

Dear Families,

It's certainly that time of year when school is busy and fun. The children have been enjoying the excitement of working on air and weather projects and preparing for our learning celebration on Tuesday, December 13. We will begin in the Garage at 9:00 a.m. with a chorus performance, then we will meet in Primary D immediately following for the celebration. We plan to wrap up around 11:00 a.m. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our classroom!

On Monday, Matt Murray joined us to facilitate our participation in Hour of Code, a global movement designed to introduce students to the world of computer programming. The app we used is called Lightbot. Click here to learn more about this wonderful initiative. 

Wednesday was our last visit to The Schuylkill Center for the winter, and it was quite the finale. We played, ate lunch, and roasted marshmallows over a toasty fire. We will return to our outdoor classroom after spring break.

We have embarked on our first chapter book read-aloud for this year. The children have enjoyed listening to Ramona Quimby, Age 8 by Beverly Cleary. The story is laugh-out-loud funny and filled with interesting words that the children have enjoyed discussing.

Next week is a busy week in the Primary Unit. Please be sure to take a look at the calendar at the top of the page to see what’s on the horizon. 

Notice About Toys and Trading Cards: There have been some hurt feelings around trading cards and other personal items. The Primary Unit team agrees that the best way to avoid any confusion or conflicts related to these items is to keep them at home. We appreciate your help with this.

See you next week,

Niké and Ben
