Westminster Family Connection - June 2022
Music Week! Thank you Mr. Hall and Mrs. Newman for playing for us Music Week! Mrs. Newman showed and played her flute – and even improvised “Let It Go” for our students on the spot!! Mr. Hall played guitar and sang fun songs and demonstrated the didgeridoo! Students also got to see the inside of our grand piano with the little hammers hitting the strings! Earlier in the week students sang our “I have a little turtle” octave song, and marched to songs on the violin with the instruments they made in class!
Field Day! Our 3 and 4 year olds had such a great time at field day Monday! We were so lucky to have the fire truck visit us with Firefighter Jim! He had to leave a little bit early when a call came in – he was needed in town! We had hoops, bean bag toss, lots of bubbles, “painting”, hop balls, scooters, and “tents” in the shape of a school bus and house, and we even read Mrs. Wishy Washy and washed the animals in the turtle pool in sudsy water! It was a beautiful morning and we were able to end the morning with popsicles on the front lawn.
Father’s Day We are not able to celebrate with our Fathers in school, but our students worked hard on a special gift which they will bring home this week. From all of us here – HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!
Culture of Care – The Pajama Program!
Thank you for your generous donations of pajamas and books! The representative for the NJ Chapter of the Pajama Program made a point of telling me “because of your drive, many children in Union County will feel comforted and loved when they go to bed at night”. Our drive continues to the end of this week, and then I will deliver our donations to a NJ Chapter Community Partner.
