DISCUSSION CYCLE 2
This week we begin our second discussion topic, “Cultivating Kindness in Our Classroom Environments.” Our classroom communities are a great place to begin talking about how we model kindness in our everyday lives. This will set the tone for future discussions on this topic. Please read the handout posted in Konstella. All classes will be doing this topic.
FALL PHOTOS WITH SHEILA ARE HERE!
Our dedicated alumni parent and photographer Sheila Krakow is back to offer our families a valuable service and help Little Wonders raise money. Families can sign up for slots to come and get their children and/or families photographed for a reasonable fee and get great photos for upcoming holidays. This is part of our Little Wonders fundraising effort and something that benefits our families and the school. Please do read the information carefully and sign up quickly as spots go fast! We appreciate everyone coming prepared with cash or check made out to Sheila Krakow for the sitting fee to facilitate efficiency and keeping everything on time.
