CHILDREN’S HOUSE I
APRIL 2019 NEWSLETTER
We hope your family has a wonderful time off for Spring Break! May you enjoy rest, relaxation, and extra family time! It’s hard to believe that we only have eight more weeks of school. We have really seen the children blossom academically, socially, and emotionally. The older students have filled the leader role very nicely. We look forward to enjoying warmer weather, gardening, and taking nature hikes ahead! There are MANY activities coming up in the next two months. Just a reminder, spring conferences are available upon request.

TASTE OF THE WORLD
Each year the whole school hosts the popular event “Taste of the World”. On Tuesday, April 23th, beginning at 9:00 am, this event will again take place. Each of the Children’s House classrooms, Elementary 1, Elementary 2, and Middle School classrooms have chosen a continent to represent in food. All of the students get a chance to tour the world through food, and parents are welcome to join us. Children’s House 1 will be representing North America. We will need some parent volunteers to help cook the dishes and to help serve them. We sent out a SignupGenius.com regarding this. If you have a favorite recipe or craft from North America that you would like to share, let us know. This is a very fun event and we hope to see many of you with your children!

We look forward to seeing all of the donations by MSW family and friends at the silent auction event, Cinco de Mayo! We hope to see you all there. This is a great way to help support our school, mingle with parents and teachers, and bid on some fun items! The CH 1 themed basket is “Favorite Children’s Books”. We will begin collecting new book donations and monetary donations to go towards this after Spring Break. We hope to have all families participate in the basket, and our wonderful room mom, Virginia Rhum, will put the basket together.
We are looking forward to another annual whole school spring program. The Children’s House students will sing on stage before the elementary and middle school students perform. We are currently choosing the songs, and will begin practicing after Spring Break. Students will wear MSW T-shirt (or solid light blue shirt) and blue jeans. Students will meet at 6:15 in the Parish Hall on May 10.
Thank you for all your help with listening to readers, snack donation, arrival/dismissal, portfolio help, rug washing, and take home materials.
We still need volunteers to help with arrival and dismissal, library, and listening to readers. If you still need to fulfill required volunteer hours, please let us know. As the year comes to an end, please remember the handbook requirement of 20 volunteer hours per child. Remember to add your volunteer time (including purchases $20=1 hour) into your sheet in the binder by the front door. Thank you in advance! More ways to help:
