Fall is Here

I can't believe September is almost over, the month has flown by.  It is so much fun getting to know each child's personality, and being able to see the compassion they have for one another. Our school theme this month has been focused on manners and emotions.  While "please" and "thank you" are learned, the children naturally want to help their friends who are hurt, homesick, or sad.  Their love for others is inspiring.
