Casa News – January, 2020

January was a very busy month in Casa! Along with their regular work, the children took part in 4 Casa Cooks (fruit kabobs, carrot soup, brussel sprouts, and fries), 2 Yoga classes with Kim from Tree Song Yoga, the annual Teddy Bear Hospital, and Expert Day! Please check out the photos posted below from these events!

Our Circle Times this month have had a focus on manners (grace and courtesy) and germs (how they spread and how to prevent the spread). Students were engaged and learned so much about spreading kindness instead of germs!

February will be the month of love in Casa. Just a reminder that we do not distribute Valentine’s Day cards in Casa. In our experience, it isn’t feasible for the students to manage this task in a fair and loving manner at this level. Our celebration of this special day will be meaningful and age appropriate for all of our Casa children, so please do not worry about them missing out. Your children can look forward to a week filled with art, stories, songs, and community outreach, all centering around love, kindness, and caring for others. Students are also welcome to wear colours on Valentine’s Day that make them think of love and kindness (traditionally red, pink, purple, and white…but whatever they’d like!).
