Pinwheels for Peace

Once again, our school is proud to participate in the Pinwheels for Peace project where children around the world display pinwheels of all different sizes as a public visual of “Whirled” Peace.  Many thanks to Mrs. Katz, our art teacher, for creating the beautiful display on our school’s front lawn.  With her help, each child in our school made a pinwheel with words of peace and harmony written on it.  Then they placed the pinwheels in front of our school.  With this simple act, we join many schools and people around the world in our hope for world peace.

Apples, Apples, Everywhere

This week we learned about John Chapman (a.k.a. Johnny Appleseed) and did many activities with apples in honor of Johnny Appleseed Day which is September 26th.  The children had fun learning how the apple tree changes with each season.  We studied the parts of an apple. We even played apple themed games.  We ended our apple mini unit by tasting applesauce. Yum!
