A weekly update from campus...

December 11, 2015

Dear parents,

I have received many requests for suggestions on what to do with the children while they are on break. My first response is a perfect time for the kids to be kids! Let them play, create, build, explore, REST! There is a lot to be said for down time. We all need it, even the children.

If you find yourself going stir crazy and you need to get out of the house for a little air and to stretch your legs, here are just a few things that I would recommend you check out!

Perot Museum of Nature and Science presents Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence

Holiday at the Arboretum 2015

The Heard Museum presents Dinosaurs Live!

The Trains at North Park

Dallas Children's Theater presents Kathy Burks Theater of Puppetry Arts' Not A Creature Was Stirring

Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Preservation Hall Jazz Band

Peter Pan 360

These are just a few ideas. We are very fortunate to live in a community where the arts are alive and the museums abound. Go check out one you have never visited. The children would love it. I might even see you there!

Have a great weekend,

Mrs. Abney
