At a Glance

This week we learned about the presidents, past and present. Did you know George Washington wore breeches (pants) at the age of 5 and Abraham Lincoln grew whiskers (a beard) when running for president? Ask your child to share a fun fact they learned about our presidents or share one of your own!

In crew this week, we shared qualities of a good friend. We talked about what makes a good friend, how to be a good friend, and what we do with good friends.

Thank you to Yichen's dad, Lin Wang, for coming and talking to us about the Chinese New Year. Thank you to Brayden's grandmother, Tracie Bauer, who has read books to the class every month. We now have these books as part of our class library thanks to Wells Fargo.
