SASD 4K Family Newsletter
Grow. Play. Learn.
January 4th 2021
What does the New Year mean to you? To us, it means fresh starts, the beginning of something new. We have lots in store for 4K in the coming months! Students are learning about the farm and will move into learning about from jungle to desert at the end of the month. They are learning that letters have sounds and sounds make words. Even with social distancing in the classroom, they are learning to share and take turns.
Celebrating the New Year on January 1 is a human-created civil event, not a natural, seasonal or astronomical one. And yet nature cooperates to make January 1 a satisfying time to start anew as the days begin to get longer again. We want to wish you and your family well this 2021!
