A shout out to our teachers!

Last night I was helping a teacher friend with their distance learning plan. Through that conversation, I realized that I MUST give a shout out to teachers everywhere who are really accepting the challenge of distance learning and giving more time and energy than ever before. I am especially proud of OUR teachers and how they are working to adjust what they send home as they hear feedback from parents.

While this is definately a challenge and I am sure stretching parents (including me!) in more ways than one, you too, have risen to the challenge and are doing great with this distance learning. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

For all those who enjoy "rest time" with Ms. Mary, here is a book for your children to enjoy (read by Ms. Mary) called: Home for a Bunny.

Another sneak peak into homes across the SJB community!
Take a look! :)

Mrs. Salonek: Practical life...folding baby laundry

A fun way to continue with what happens in the classroom (young meteorologists)...I am personally hoping we have more days where SUNNY and WARM can be marked!

"It is through appropriate work and activities that the character of the child is transformed.  Work influences his development in the same way that food revives the vigor of a starving man. We observe that a child occupied with matters that awaken his interest seems to blossom, to expand, evincing undreamed of character traits; his abilities give him great satisfaction, and he smiles with a sweet and joyous smile."
-Dr. Montessori
