Gung Hay fat Choy! I hope you enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year. The children seemed to love the cultural differences and even tried some new foods. Throughout this Year of the Dog, I wish you health and happiness.
We will begin the month studying lions and lambs. We will learn about the month of March -- how the weather is unpredictable; cold and blustery like a lion and warm and pleasant like a lamb.
Our St. Patrick's Day party is Thursday March 15th. Sign ups will be up soon. We will learn a wee bit about St. Patrick, Ireland and may look for a "tricky leprechaun."
We will end the month with our celebration of Easter. I will talk with your children about how God gives us all new life at Easter. We will discuss flowers, animals, birds, butterflies and people and how to appreciate everything around us this spring. We'll be doing a very special Easter project on Wednesday March 21st -- we will be painting our FEET! I will send a reminder next week. Our Egg Hunt and celebration will be Tuesday March 27th.
Only THREE more months of school - enjoy these moments! Have a grrrreat month!!
