It was such a treat to have all of the wonderful ladies in our student’s lives come and visit us for a special afternoon at The Grove School of Cary!
We served refreshments of fresh cut strawberries, ladyfingers and lemonade. Each classroom had a special project planned for the event including planting flowers in recycled baby food jars, recycled jewelry making, recycled sun catchers, and recycled cardboard picture frame decorating. Thank you to all the lovely ladies that attended!
Please join us Monday May 13th from 4 pm- 6 pm for our Lady I Love event. Come and enjoy refreshments and a special activity with your child and his/her teachers!
We’ve had such a wonderful start to Teacher Appreciation Week here at the Grove School of Cary!
Monday, we let our teachers know that we could not “survive” without them! Each classroom received a “Teacher Survival Kit” full of small and useful goodies!
Tuesday, Grove school parents donated a plethora of salad bar items to show teachers just how good they are for our health!
Throughout the week, yellow circles are available for families to fill out “Thank you for….” to place on all classroom doors!
We’re excited to see what the rest of the week will bring for our fabulous Grove teachers!
Let’s all show our Grove teachers how much we love them!!!
Every month, a classroom at The Grove School of Cary features a book for our monthly book club. For April, the Apple Grove (one of our 4-5 year old classrooms) did a project on Growing Vegetable Soup by Lois Ehlert.
After enjoying the colorful pictures and familiar text of the book, students examined fresh root vegetables like beets, carrots, potatoes and radishes from the Farmer’s Market! Students learned that root vegetables grow beneath the soil. Students then discussed and illustrated the root vegetables they would like to grow this year in our outdoor Grove garden!
A huge THANK YOU to all the Grove teachers and families for your support last Saturday for our Spring Planting Day and potluck! It was a gorgeous day and children and familes enjoyed some outdoor crafts including making garden flags and plant signs. We also successfully planted a green bean tipi, a vine garden, two butterfly gardens, a sensory garden, an herb gardens, a pizza garden and a salsa garden! We can’t wait to watch it all grow!!
A very happy Earth Day from the Grove School of Cary!!
Our third “Outdoor Education in the Grove” entry is brought to you by our 3-4 year old students of the Orange Grove and their teachers Ms. Sarah and Ms. Kenisha.
What’s more fun than digging in dirt? Playing with worms! In addition to the worm farm that the Orange Grove created for their classroom, students discovered worms in our compost and our garden beds and had a blast measuring them all!
Here at the Grove School of Cary, we celebrate young children each and every day, but this week, we showed our support for NAEYC (the National Association for the Education of Young Children) by celebrating ‘The Week of the Young Child.’
“The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early childhood education association, with nearly 80,000 members and a network of over 300 local, state, and regional Affiliates.
The purpose of the Week of the Young Child™ is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child™ in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child™ is a time to plan how we—as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation—will better meet the needs of all young children and their families.” (naeyc.org)
Here at the Grove, we are thankful for the love and light our young children give to us each and every day!!
A promotional table has been set up in our lobby displaying some sample materials from our Kindergarten curriculum for fall 2013! Please visit us to take a sneak peek into this wonderful K12 program, and sign your child up to join us on the wonderful educational adventure that is Kindergarten!!
