SPANISH (Primary & Elementary) Teacher: Antoinette Skrak I am very excited about this year’s Spanish lessons with your children. We have some wonderful new materials including life-size picture books with coordinating games and songs that we will be learning. The children will also learn greetings, colors, likes/dislikes as well as lessons on culture such as the works of Pablo Picasso and Mexican haciendas. Always very popular are lessons on food with real samples for everyone.
LIBRARY (Primary) Teacher: Ms. Jeanne Fawcett Jeanne (Ms. Sharon’s mom) will be reading wonderful stories to the children. The children love and enjoy Ms. Jeanne.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION (Primary & Elementary) Teacher: Jennifer Green Will be doing P.E. with our Primary and Elementary children once a week. There are so many topics to cover that involve learning activity to take of our bodies. We will discuss muscles and do activities that challenge your child’s balance, coordination, agility and flexibility. Inspiring an individual child to learn about their body and how it works will certainly always involve FUN!
ART (Elementary) Teacher: Janine Cole The children will explore different mediums and get further acquainted with several famous artists as well as create their own masterpiece. It would be appreciated if you send in an old t-shirt to use during class to protect their clothing. In addition, please provide your child with a spiral drawing pad.
