Happy Monday everybody! We hope you had a nice weekend. We would like to start this week’s newsletter by congratulation or Head of school Ms. Sampson for becoming a grandmother this past Friday; we are very thankful and excited that her grandchild arrived healthy and safe. We wish the whole family lots of happiness in this new journey. We also like to welcome back our friend Armaan to our class; after a long summer vacation he is finally with us and we are so happy to see him again.

This past week we’ve learned several new lessons:

  • Students had their Social Studies lesson on the continents; they also learned /reviewed the continents song.
  • Second and third year students had more advanced lessons on land forms using different pictures and materials.
  • During our meditation time we learned two kids of breaths: the bunny and the snake breaths. In yoga we learned the arrow pose.
  • We also learned to signed fish, dog, and cat.
  • Our Spanish song this week was the days of the week.
  • We started to clean some sports in the garden and we’ll continue to do more this coming week.
  • We continue practicing our kindness pledge; the students are doing great work memorizing all the words, we are very proud of them! 
  • Our kindergarteners finished their unit on the family and are ready to start learning about community, specially our school!

We will start learning about our new unit on community helpers; we will send important information about this unit in the Monday folder, please take a moment to read it through, we appreciate your help in the matter. We will also start with lessons about living and non-living.


  • Return Monday folder, mat covers, and lunch forms on time.
  • Potluck is on September 22nd from 6:30-8:00. We hope to see everybody!
  • Please label everything with your child’s name and send a water bottle and a cloth napkin every day.
  • We are in need of some wild birds seeds for our bird feeder in the garden. Any small donation will be greatly appreciated.

Have a nice week!
