This week we enjoyed our first ever International Art Show! Our students and staff had fun in April learning about cultures from around the world and on Wednesday, April 29TH our students took turns traveling around the school to experience a different country in each classroom. Parents were also invited to stop by later that night.
Check out more photos of the International Art Show and see more of the wonderful crafts our students made!
Today we celebrate Earth Day, the celebration of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

Our teachers have a lot of fun activities planned for today, but it is important that parents encourage their kids to respect the Earth as well. Here are some fun ways that you can celebrate Earth Day with your children:
