May News

We had the honor of having one of our kindergartners and her family share how they pray.  It was a wonderful experience to learn a little more about Muslim prayer and about the hijab.  Our kindergartner did a great job sharing in front of a big audience!

Ice Cream Party

Our grade was the only grade to earn an ice cream party!  We discussed that it had a lot to do with one of our C.A.R.E. themes, generosity, because we had so many families act generously and give to Breck this spring.
Ice cream brings smiles!

Concentrating on our yummy sundaes!

Summer Reading

Our librarians have summer reading lists ready for children in the lower school!  Please click here and follow the link on the bottom for first grade.  Please note that the reading is optional and just a great way to keep reading when the sun is shining!  Summer library hours are also listed.

Speaking of reading, we had the opportunity to decorate our door this week!  The library hosted a door-decorating contest, and our class voted for The Gingerbread Girl.  We hope to get an honorable mention in the contest!  The students collaborated together to made every piece of the door.

Save the Dates!

We are still waiting for that perfect weather day for Water Day.  So far it has eluded us, but we will stay persistent and tentatively look at next Friday, May 22 for our Water Day.

The Kindergarten Movie premiere happens on Thursday, May 28th in the Cargill Theater.  Please arrive by 1:15.  Following the movie, the children will informally share a compilation of their work back in the classroom.
