As we approach the end of the school year there are various workbooks and concepts to finish, yet there is still an abundance of new experiences to enjoy. With the completion of International Week and the construction of our Jeepney, we will carry over some of our work to share on Friend Day.
We are presently designing our Monet paintings for the art festival to be held on May 10. This project is unique in every way and provides the students with the opportunity to use all their art skills that have accumulated throughout the school year. Each child’s work will be different and creative and represent their personal style of expression. During the festival each student will be provided the opportunity to speak about their project and how they progressed with their painting. This prepares them for their Kindergarten Celebration Day.
As an "end of year"” tradition at GFS, kindergarten will be involved in the hatching of the chick eggs. The chicks will arrive on may 17th and we will wait patiently for the hatching.
The end of the school year brings the emotions of bitter and sweet. There have been so many experiences that have supported social and academic growth. The foundation has been created for the journey to continue. As Dr. Seuss would say, "The places you will go."
Enjoy the journey.
In Peace. Teacher kara
