Permission Granted: Let them be little curious explorers!!

At the heart of process art is experimentation. It is important to offer art experiences that children can bring their own ideas to test and explore.

Monoprints give children full permission to experiment.

Add loose parts for mark making in the paint and you have magic!

Parent Teacher Conferences

This is the week we connect with families, sometimes for the final time. Your relationship with families is amazing, thanks for spending this time together, the benefit to our little learners is amazing!

Satellites: We are still waiting to hear who is covering conferences as an administrator. If it will be someone other than the building administrator, I will let you know. There was a problem getting them covered this year.

Meals: We will have bbq again this spring on Wednesday at 2:00. Satellites will get info from Jeanie.
