Holi Hai!, Albert Whitman’s second book with author Chitra Soundar (Shubh Diwali!) is a wonderful introduction to the Hindu festival of colors featuring a multigenerational family.

On March 26th, 2020 The Oaks Children’s Academy closed their doors due to the fast rising numbers of Covid-19 in our area. This was done not knowing when we would actually open again. Thankfully two months later we were able to open our doors and be with our little friends once again.

Today, on the anniversary of this closure, a hand full of us were able to receive our 2nd dose of the vaccine!
(Other teachers will soon follow.)

By doing this we are able to continue the fight against this virus and protect ourselves, our families and all the families in our care.

Thank you for all your patience and for sticking with us during those trying times.
