Flynn Field Trips and Workshops!

Grownups, please look for information on our upcoming Flynn Theater field trips – we have two!  Meanwhile, we’ve struck gold again!  We’ve received a grant from the Flynn for an in class workshop on our first show, Frindle!  I’m so excited about this!  We’ll have a Flynn artist come into the class to teach us dramatic techniques and ways to more fully appreciate the show!  The companion workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, March 2nd at 9:00 a.m. and the show is Thursday, March 3rd!

DARE Projects

This week our kiddos will be finishing their DARE classroom work.  Officer Fontaine will be in each morning from 9:00 to 9:45.  This completes the work which was begun during DARE/Guidance.  Students are required to complete either a project or a written essay to graduate from DARE.  Today your kiddo brought home some information on this assignment.  As of today, we don’t have a due date, nor a date for DARE graduation.  These will be communicated as quickly as possible!  I recommend, however, beginning to plan the project right now!  Things have a way of creeping up on us!

Acts of Kindness!

We did it! We reached our goal of over 300 Acts of Kindness in one week! For each personal act we committed, we hung a purple ribbon from the ceiling of the Lighthouse hallway. As you can see, a little kindness goes a long, long way! 320 Acts of Kindness from 20 students! Amazing! I hope you enjoyed the love!

You’re So Vain Spelling

Spelling this week is Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain!  Kiddos are responsible for spelling the 12 identified words and the meaning of each!  We’ll also sing, dance, and dress in Seventies style on Friday!  If your kiddo wishes to dress in costume, it’s welcomed, but not required!  It’s always a fun week to pop in on us while we learn our lyrics, I mean spelling list!  :)
