hello everyone! tomorrow is our first day in our new classroom! for those of you that were able to visit today, you know that we have a great new room and a fantastic playground, and the kids were ready to settle in and play. there are cubbies in the room, and hooks for coats. in the morning i will show you where to put snacks and lunches. there is one different thing about snack: since we no longer have a kitchen, you will need to pack a labeled drink for snack. a sippy cup is can even use one big cup that can be for snack and lunch. it's up to you.

the theme this week is jungle animals. we'll make bubble print snakes, zebras, colorful jungle butterflies...we will also be doing spin art and playdoh. we're going to have an easy week settling in and getting used to things. it's certainly an adjustment for all of us! if you have any concerns at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. the kids all seem really excited about the change, and i am too. i know the drive is longer for some of you--me, too. i live all the way out in saxapahaw!--so let me know if you think you may be a few minutes late at pick up time.

also i want to remind you about the membership meeting tomorrow at 7pm. it's sooo important that we all come together and talk about the next step in the process of finding a permanent home for our school. in my time at the coop--fourteen years---we have moved three times. each time it was a little unsettling, and we all felt a little unsure, but by coming together we found a great new space each time. i love this school, and i have so much faith in the group of families that we have right now, and in the dedication of kinsey and our teachers. i hope i see all of you there tomorrow.
