RACE Exhibit, Goodbye's, Dental Hygienists and MORE!!!


Welcome back and enjoy the photos!

Presentation of Learning Preparations

We took time this week to look through our portfolios and reflect on all the work we have done and skills we have gained in our kindergarten year.  Friends were asked to look at their work samples and reflect on what they learned, what was hard, what they were proud of, and what they learned about how they learn.

Thank you to Bridget for being our Family Reader!

Come in and check out our journal reflection on wealth gaps and what the friends thought would be an appropriate reason for someone to earn more money than someone else, regardless of the color of their skin,.

A Special Goodbye

Our dear friend, Lily, and her family are starting a new chapter in their lives and are traveling to New York and then Austrailia!  We took some time to do some of Lily's favorite things before we had to say goodbye.

 Also, friends delivered gifts that they had worked on all week to help our friend remember us.

We had a dental hygienist come in as an expert to talk to us all about our teeth!
