Yesterday, our kindergartens held their “Celebration of
Learning”. As the children stood proudly
on the risers in front of the stage and sang songs about their life in
kindergarten, their equally proud parents and relatives applauded
enthusiastically and snapped lots of pictures.
The children sang about the numbers and colors they had learned and
showed off their morning greeting rituals, a combination of warm hellos and
gentle hip bumps. They were charming and
funny, a delight to watch, and eager to let everyone know they were ready for
first grade. As the children performed, their teachers sat on the floor in front of the stage and directed the show; in picture left, Mrs. Blum and Mrs. Murphy get ready to start the celebration.
