FIRST, it took a couple of weeks for students and staff to get ready for our Annual Halloween Carnival, a part of "Lights On Afterschool Alliance Program". All that hard, but fun, work paid off as over 40 children plus some families partook in games, munched on delicious snacks (thank you, parents!) and had their photos taken with creative face paints on.
Did you know that according to Afterschool Alliance research over the past 20 years, law enforcement leaders across the country have relied on high-quality afterschool programs to provide supportive, stable, and enriching environment with caring adults that keep children and youth out of trouble and safe, while supporting their academic success, and social and emotional development.
Another fun event was a half-day field trip to Bowlerama. We were so proud seeing how our
Then snow came and kids were so excited! All they wanted is to be outside - it worked out perfectly since on Fridays we have Forest Fridays program. After painting in the snow, children were happy to relax playing a board game while sipping hot cocoa. What a fun ending to a busy week!
Speaking of snow and colder temps, please remember to send winter clothing with your children. It would really help if they could have a second pair of gloves/mittens for the afternoon, if possible, as they often get them wet during their school day recess. Soon we will go snowshoeing and ice skating and we'd like to keep your children warm. Thank you!
REMINDER: Session I of our program ends on November 26th; Session II packets coming soon. All Session I fees are due by that time.
Thank you for signing up your children with One Planet.
