The children are so happy to be back at school! Welcome to all, new families and those returning. We have an exciting year ahead! The staff and I are eagerly looking forward to providing your child with an outstanding experience here at SWSM by creating a nurturing environment which allows him to thrive.
The extended day kindergartners are settling in to their longer days, lunchtime with friends and a class trip to the apple orchard already. Our preschoolers have adjusted easily to their school routine and the classrooms seem almost normalized. The toddlers love being outside the most, followed by eating snack. They are gradually becoming more comfortable being away from mom while learning all sorts of new skills.
The children enjoyed singing with Miss Angie, who will visit through the year. Spanish, gym and yoga will begin next week; and we’re all looking forward to marching in the Palos Park parade and a field trip to Konow’s Corn Maze in early October.
Get your costumes ready for the Pumpkin Hunt on October 27th as you’ll want to greet all of the ghosts and goblins for this favorite event. Also circle the date of November 16th for our annual dinner and auction, The Harvest Moon Gala. You will not want to miss this special evening. Make sure to check the school calendar for other upcoming happenings here at SWSM.
We’re off to an exciting start!
