Venessa’s Primary: The students are so involved with their material they do not even stop and look to see a visitor walk through the room.  Two PII students play a guessing game with the movable alphabet and blindfold.  A PIII student begins their first exploration with the African map and says “Madagascar is the 4th longest island in the world”.  A PI student scrubs a model of a triceratops while another student sits and threads a needle for the first time.

Elementary and Middle School: Students are gathered together to hear and respond to the sad news about Lamar’s kind father who died this weekend.  Each child spreads about their own lessens and grandparents, a pet, a close family friend.  Children offer suggestions on what they might do to offer help: make a Daily Soup and send it home with Lamar, cards and play dates, all seem to be good ideas.  Several children move to the art area and begin to create messages of hope and comfort.

Amanda’s Primary: Several students observe a friend using a stethoscope to hear their heart beat before and after thirty seconds of jumping and running in place.  “Now my heart is beating really, really fast.”  Students form a line with one friend after the next anxiously awaiting their turn.  Across the room, a first year student discovers the bar of (germ free, concentrated) soap and water on the practical life shelf.  Within minutes their arms are sudsy to the elbows.

Infant:  An infant leans back gazing up at the clear sky and clouds. She reaches across the blanket to a set of metal rings.  It's too far away to reach, so she rolls over onto her tummy and manages to get up on her knees.  She rocks and bounces back and forth, working very hard to engage her whole body to get over to the rings.  She manages to rock hard enough that her body inches forward and as she grasps the rings lets out a sigh of satisfaction, she leans back down on the blanket to watch the clouds and explore the rings.

Toddler: A child wants to hold hands, but can't find anyone to hold hands with.  She persistently asks another friend, but this time, instead of saying "no," the friend extends his arms and offers her a big hug!  After lots of laughter, a spontaneous game of Ring Around the Rosie ensues and the two friends show their new friends how it’s done.

Your post reminded me of my primary and middle school. I remember how everyone is so busy with the artsy projects that the teachers are assigning back then. There are a lot of events and quiz bees. There are also a lot of competition per section which has taught children to be competitive even at an early age. I might visit my Alma Mater this weekend.

Good job! Really nice way of updating the students, teachers, administrators and of course the parents on what's happening in the school. Through this updates, you are assuring everyone that everything's under control.You also have your school calendar activities attached which is really good I think. You are able to update and make everyone aware of your activities. Continue to make this kind updates and I'm quite sure that you will be able to satisfy the parents.
