We have had such fun celebrating the Week of the Young Child. Our cardboard kids decorate the playground and the school and our Acorn students loved finding "themselves" on the playground. Face painting, music making, crazy hats, and dance parties have been big playground hits this week. Ask your child about some of his or her favorite activities this week. What did they think was silly? What was their favorite activity?
In addition to all our outside fun, the chicks and butterflies inside the building are keeping us busy. The chicks are getting bigger every day and trying to fly. They seem to enjoy being read to by our kindergarten class and talked to and watched by our other classes. As a reminder, if you have old newspapers please consider donating them for our chick habitats. The more chicks grow and eat, the more newspaper we need to keep their homes clean.
This Saturday, April 17th at 10 AM we will be having a celebration of life and tree planting in memory of our dear friend and former teacher, Cindy Hinds. Cindy was beloved by families and staff alike and will forever be remembered as a vibrant part of our school community. Click here for more information.
The Landa Gardens Conservancy will be hosting their annual May Month celebration on the grounds of Landa library during the month of May. This is a month of FREE activities for adults and children alike. Many current and former Acorn parents serve on the board of this organization and have had an active role in planning the events. This year's events include a teddy bear picnic with Miss Anastasia, Mommy and Me Yoga, an archeological demonstration and a Jazz Night in the gardens, among other activities. Given city restrictions, many of these events will have limited spaces for attending in person. Click here for the full schedule of events and to sign up. Spots are filling quickly!
We will be celebrating our 2021 graduating seniors on Thursday, April 29 at our Acorn Alumni Reunion!
Please remember that there will be no school on Friday, April 23.
Thank you for your ongoing support. Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend!
