Music Class & Peter Rabbit
We are learning a song about Peter Rabbit in 2nd-3rd grade. We decided to try the vegetables the song mentioned, so we ate carrots, mushrooms, cabbage, celery, radishes, lettuce, and broccoli. Students even braved some hummus dip! Our health message and music are working in harmony!
Acrofest at Union College
The MAA gymnastics team did lots of flips and cartwheels at Union College this past weekend, thanks to generous donations from this community. The team exceeded its fundraising goal by $63.00 on November 9, just two days before Acrofest began! Whether you rented gymnasts for projects, bought at our bake sales, played Angry birds at the Fall Fest, or gave donations, the team thanks you. Each member is amazed and grateful to God for blessing the team through your support.
Community Project - 2nd Grade
Last week we had Faye Martin come by and tell us about the New Haven ReNewed Hope Pantry. Did you know that almost 300 children benefit from the food pantry? The second grade class would like to help those kids have an even better Christmas this year and are encouraging families to donate NEW toys (about $5.00) so that the people coming through for food can also shop for Christmas toys for their kids during December. The second graders will be making flyers and presentingtheir outreach project to the other classes in the school. Donations are being collected in the big box outside the second grade classroom from now until December 14.
Dishes and Desserts
The weekend is a time of relaxation and enjoyment – but often the preparations of the home cause unwanted stress. The Seniors of 2016 seeks to alleviate some of that stress by preparing delicious meals and desserts for your weekend activities. Let us help you get ready for your weekend! We're excited to bring you delicious pastas, vegetarian meatballs, cupcakes, and much more.
If you choose to order, you can expect a well-made meal or dessert to be waiting for you when you pick up your kids on Friday. To find out more, click here.
School Security Update
TED Systems, a local security solutions company, has been installing surveillance cameras and entryway security during the month of October to go along with our new entryway. Expect to be buzzed into the school now when you visit. As you enter through the outer doors, you will see a doorbell on the wall to your left. After you push the button, Mrs. Fairchild will be able to release the lock for you. You may enter through either door. Pull firmly on the door handle when you hear the lock release.
