As the kindergarten year unfolds various experiences are planned that can enrich each child to connect as a learner with confidence and self-awareness.
First on the calendar is observing our caterpillar larvae each day, charting their growth and metamorphosis, as they transition from caterpillar to butterfly. At this time the children are like caterpillars and have changed into learners with ideas, strengths, roots, and wings. Just like the butterfly, they will emerge and fly successfully to their next step.
Moving forward is important and so is being present and feeling the sense of completion of the kindergarten year.
ADDITIONAL EVENTS: MAY 26: Embryology. Incubating and hatching chicks June 2: Kindergarten Celebration at 10:00am. A time to reflect on the kindergarten year. Children will recite their special poem, sing select songs, and receive their Kindergarten Certificate. June 3: Franklin Institute June 4: Game Day at 1:00pm June 5: Last day. Picnic on playground starting at 11:30am
The closing of the school year has many layers including present and future growth. It has been a privilege to serve the children this year. Our children are the world and the future. They can and will make a difference.
