Happy New Year! We hope you all are having a safe, healthy, and relaxing break. However you spent your break, we hope that your hearts are full of love, peace, and laughter. We are excited for all that the new year will bring in CH1. December was an extremely fast moving month. There were many fun songs and activities to close out 2019. We will welcome 2 new students from the Toddler Room this month. Welcome to Charlotte and Chloe.

Quote of the month:

“A child who has become master of his acts through long and repeated exercises, and who has been encouraged by the pleasant and interesting activities in which he has been engaged, is a child filled with health and joy and remarkable for his calmness and discipline.” (Dr. Maria Montessori, ‘The Discovery of the Child’, Clio Press Ltd, 92)

 

 

Peace to you,

Mrs. Amy Barnes & Mrs. Susan Miller
