Let’s take a look at everything that happened during May and what’s to come during June.
“Hands on”, project-based learning was the focus of a couple of April happenings. The students explored different professions from Chef to Hairstylist and more at Career Day. And after Winter Storm Uri decimated the winter garden a new spring “Growing Garden” has been planted. Speaking of support, special thanks to partners Who is Hussain? and CST for all their support these past two semesters! Read for more details!
Moms are awesome!
All classes created special cards and crafts for their moms, talking about the many things a mom does every day from going to work, creating a safe home, and teaching us to be kind.
The culmination of learning about the plant cycle and growing your own food is the chance to eat some of it! K to 2nd graders in the Wildflower classroom celebrate their hard work in the garden this year by having their Feast of Sharing! Students chopped tomatoes, peppers, and other veggies from their garden to add to purchased mangos, resulting in delicious mango salsa. The students loved enjoying the “veggies of their labor.”
Thanks Teatro Dallas!
Since March, Teatro Dallas has come weekly to teach theater basics to the 3rd to 5th graders. Everything from character development and script writing to blocking and costuming. The students love Mr. Omar and his energy. Thank you so much Teatro!
Special thank you to the Ambrose Group for donating 125 bags of mulch to the Heart House playground. This intrepid group was able, – during a rare dry day!, – to spread it across the playground to ensure student safety and fun.
