Director's Details-Christmas Break

Classical Conversations of Burien

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

We're halfway there! Great job, CC Burien! You are running the race strong and we will finish strong...but we should all enjoy a well-deserved break! I know I need it! I'm ready to spend a few weeks of learning in a more relaxed way and taking some time to regroup and revise our plans for the rest of the year.

I hope to see you all on Thursday for a fun time of celebrating and reviewing.

Christmas Party & Mid-Year Review - Thursday!

Enjoy your break - See you back at CC on January 7!

Geography Map Tracing Challenge!

Use your time wisely - Practice your map drawing over break!

What? Practice your geography skills by tracing, blob mapping or free hand drawing the world or specific memory work. Bring your work to CC. Mrs. Chang will donate 5 cents for every map turned in. We will donate the final sum to a local charity AND we'll have a party to celebrate our fantastic work!

When? October 29 - February 11

Why? To sharpen our map skills AND to raise money for local international families

**There will be a jar and a folder for tallying maps drawn. Please tally for every 5 cents earned per map and put one corn kernel per 5 cents in the jar. You may submit your maps or keep them. We will also have a map of Africa where we will color in a country for each dollar earned. Please track your own child's progress. If your child is receiving donations from someone besides me, track that with tally marks and corn kernels but keep the funds until I announce that we will be submitting the donation.

Essentials Open House for Upcoming families

For families who will be moving into the Essentials years next year, we will be hosting an Essentials open house on January 21. Please plan to stay that afternoon. Parents you are invited to sit in our class and see what it's all about. I will be asking for extra moms to stick around that afternoon and help with the extra kiddos in childcare.
