Day in the Life

General School Mission

It should be a really great school year with a lot of fun and a lot of learning, both book learning and learning through play. We will be involved in many cooperative activities, learning activities, open-ended activities, and of course free play activities. I hope to give the kids a lot of hands on experiences that they will truly enjoy, as well as fostering their natural curiosity and enabling them to explore their creativity and imagination. Our days will be busy, but they will be fun! I don’t think anyone will have the time to be bored with all that we have planned. J I want to teach them that school and learning are fun and that schoolwork doesn’t have to feel like work. A positive school experience now will give them a positive attitude toward school and learning later in life. A love of learning is a wonderful attribute to have!
