My fire-building skills failed me today, but everyone agreed that at least I make good hot cocoa πŸ”₯ β˜•οΈ πŸ˜‚ It is smoking good, just no warmth...

12/08/2021

We are spending this week and next talking about Christmas and really focusing on the true meaning of the season (we have read The Grinch and today and tomorrow we are reading The Tale of Three Trees). We have been really focusing on talking about how Christmas is more than just receiving gifts (although that is fun, too). We are spending this week and next doing special projects for others and talking about loving our friends and family. I’m encouraging all my families to dig deeper with their child in this topic. The students have REALLY enjoyed doing acts of service and making special gifts for others. πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌβ›„οΈβ„οΈπŸ’œ

πŸŒ²β›„οΈβ„οΈπŸŽ„As a fundraiser this year, we will have a silent auction featuring handmade cinnamon salt dough ornaments made by the students! All ornaments (and kits) start at $5 πŸ™‚ The auction will end 12/10 at midnight. Highest bidder on each ornament wins it!

The fundraiser funds will go towards the rising costs of cleaning supplies, craft supplies, new books, spring gardening tools for the kids, and special projects/parties/ and if we raise enough, I’d love to have a scholarship fund set aside for next year!

You can also donate on our website under the shop tab @greatmindsfarmandnatureschool.org

To see the artist of each ornament, just click on the picture πŸ™‚

Thank you to everyone for your support of our school!
