Heath Extended Day
Wish Days Granted in January…During the month of January, we granted many special days that were
wished for by the kids. Wishes we fulfilled during January were:
Edible Art day, Candy day, Soccer day, Movie day and Pizza day.
Edible Art day was a huge hit! The kids made “sushi” out of angle
food cake, twinkies, fruit roll ups, Swedish fish and gum drops! The
kids did a fantastic job using these foods to create realistic looking
pieces of sushi. Also, during Edible Art day, the kids made creative
towers using marshmallows and toothpicks. During candy day, the kids
participated in a game of candy trivia. They learned fun facts about
candy and even learned about some candy slogans. In addition to
learning about candy, the children crushed pieces of hard candy,
created their own candy mold out of tin foil and melted the crushed
pieces in the oven to create homemade lollipops in the shape of their
mold. They also learned out to make “gummy bears” using gelatin.
During soccer day, the kids got to spend a great amount of time
playing Soccer in the gym. With all the snow, they haven’t been able
to play the sport that we most often see them playing on the field
during the spring and fall! For those who did not participate, we
gave them an opportunity to sew soccer ball pillows! Finally, the
kids enjoyed movie day and pizza day. On movie day the kids relaxed
in the library and watched, Cheaper by the Dozen and they enjoyed the
a special pizza party day. We have so many more wishes to fulfill in
February! Please look for notices regarding upcoming Wacky Hair and
Winter Reminder and information
We will continue to bring the kids outside to play during the winter.
Your child MUST have a hat, gloves, and winter jacket. To play in the
snow, kids must also have snow boots and snow pants. On days where
when we are able, we will take the kids sledding on the back
playground. Your child must have a helmet to go sledding. Please
feel free to store sleds and helmets in the upstairs extended day room
during the school week. Please label your child’s belongings!
There are still spots for ice skating at the Riley Rink in Cleveland
Circle. Please see a 2-6 teacher if you would like to sign up your
child. We go weekly on Wednesdays and will continue to do so through
March 9th. The kids who have already signed up are having a blast!
We are happy to announce that Caitlyn had her baby girl, Sofia, on
Monday, January 24th. Mom and baby are doing great! The kids each
created a page with thoughtful messages and beautiful pictures
congratulating Caitlyn and welcoming Sofia! We binded the pages to
create a special book from the 2-6 children!
We are seeking 8 new Motrola Walkie Talkies to keep our lines of
communication open. We hope to get ones that are rugged and take
rechargeable batteries. Your help is appreciated!
