Primary 

Primary students continue to become more comfortable and independent in the classroom.  I observed lunch and was very impressed with how the children handled the process.  Lunch is a very special time for our students.  They get to exercise their independence and freedom but also carry more responsibility.  It is impressive to watch 3-6-year-old children use real glass plates and cups, set the table, dip their food, and clean up after eating with very little adult assistance.   

Elementary 

We were excited to see several butterflies exit the chrysalis stage.  They flew around the room and made their way to the backdoor, where they entered the great outdoors.  The children have enjoyed watching each stage of the lifecycle.
