November and December have been flying by! The month of November our Unit of Study was “The Needs of People.” We held a food drive, and ended the unit with our annual visit to Manna Food Bank. What an awesome way to celebrate Thanksgiving!
December began with a wonderful field trip to hear/see a performance of “Peter and the Wolf” by the Blue Ridge Orchestra….they were amazing, and the children enjoyed it very much! Then today we went to the Grove Park Inn to see the gingerbread houses….boy, they looked good enough to eat! Luckily, one of our Moms made gingerbread cookies for us to enjoy!
Our last day of school is Friday, December 19th, which is an early dismissal day (12:30pm). School will resume from our Winter Break on January 5, 2015. We hope everyone has a safe and restful break.
We have had a wonderful month welcoming in the cooler Fall weather. Our Unit of Study this month has been “Birds”, and we’ve really enjoyed learning all about our fine feathered friends! Our Field Trip this month will be to the Bird Sanctuary in North Asheville on Wednesday, October 29th – which is also Miss Julia’s Birthday! Class Picture Day went very well yesterday, and Miss Diane said that the proofs should be back in a couple of weeks – in time to get photos by the Holidays. And, of course,
Abby and Ms. Gayle
our Halloween Party is scheduled for Friday, October 31st from 11:30 – 12:30 pm. Children should bring their costumes to school in a bag – we’ll change into them after lunch. Also, they may bring a treat to share with their friends!
We would like to welcome all of our new families and students, and welcome back our returning families and students. Our first week back-to-school has been wonderful!
Last week we started Summer Camp at BRMS. Our theme during Week 1 was “Gardening”, and we had so much fun tending what we already have growing, planting sugar snap pea seeds, and making a scarecrow and a beautiful mosaic stepping stone. Our garden is looking awesome!
Week 2 began today with ”Cooking!” We baked homemade bread, and it was delicious! Other projects on the menu this week include pizza, zucchini bread and homemade ice cream! I can’t wait!
Please see the Summer Camp schedule above for further weeks and themes. We will be conducting camp through the end of July, and we still have spots available during most weeks.
Friday April 11th we will be celebrating Spring with an egg hunt and party from 11:30-12:30. Don’t forget to bring a basket! It will be an Early Dismissal at 12:30.
We will be off on Spring Break during the week of April 14-18. Classes resume on Monday April 21st. Hoping everyone has a safe and wonderful Spring Break!
