We are nearing the end of our first month of school, and everyone has settled (or nearly settled ) into their school routine. It is a pleasure working with our new little toddlers and discovering along with them. I got to have the most fun that I’ve had in a long time yesterday morning. I was peeking in at the toddlers having PE in the gym, and one of the little ones came to the door and beamed, “Come in!”. Who can refuse that? All of them were playing with balls (each had their own of course) and they had been practicing throwing them to each other and catching. What a hoot! They couldn’t care less if they didn’t catch it, it’s all great fun! Many of them brought their ball to me so that I could have a turn throwing and catching with them. Oh, the squeals of joy and the collective glee made my day!
The new Primary children have all settled in well and are enjoying their new school life. So much lies ahead! The older students are taking on their new challenges, and working toward becoming the leaders of tomorrow! -Ms. Wood
