We are getting back into our morning routine after swimming. Today was a day full of Inauguration events. The children read stories about President Obama, wrote speeches & poems, and watched the activities on TV. They listened closely for key words during President Obama’s speech and even caught a few examples of the Core Democratic Values.

The children are having a wonderful time in swimming lessons. It has been an excellent opportunity for them to work on life skills. It does make them a bit tired and hungry during the day so they may benefit from an extra snack. Please note that we will not have swimming on Wednesday, January 14th because the high school students have a late start.
Happy New Year! I am eager to begin again with your wonderful children. We have a busy start to our week because as soon as your child arrives to school, we will leave for the high school for swimming lessons. Please have your child wear his/her swimsuit under their clothes, and bring a towel & under garments on Monday. We will also have library so don’t forget to bring back library books.
