March Spanish Lime Newsletter

Greetings Spanish Lime Families,

For the past month the Spanish Limes have been a busy community. We celebrated Friendship Day with our toddler friends, crafted and sold items at the bake sale, and presented an in class assignments about American Presidents.

This year for Friendship Day we joined the Mangrove classroom’s circle time. As a group we recited Gandhi’s prayer of peace, sang, exchanged Friendship Day gifts, and ended our time with a dance party! The Spanish Limes created a photo book of the toddlers at work and wrote a caption to go with each picture. In exchange, the toddlers made a wonderful eucalyptus salt scrub that we use for hand washing to keep those pesky germs away!

The bake sale was a hit! Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who helped bake and sell items.  All proceeds go towards the Elementary programs. Thank YOU!

We have another enrichment added on Tuesday afternoons, Circus! David and Tobin from The Red Trouser Show instruct children to perform acrobatic skills. From tumbling, to juggling, to making human pyramids, the Spanish Limes are excited to get wrapped up in it all!

March 6th from 5:30-7:00 is parent education night on the Montessori Lower Elementary Classroom and Materials. Montessori classrooms are bright, warm and inviting spaces. They are filled with intriguing materials, fascinating models and colorful maps. The Montessori Materials provided in each level are tools that stimulate the child into logical thought and discovery. Come learn more about what the Lower Elementary classroom features and lessons given throughout the three year cycle.

If you plan to come and have a few lessons in mind you would like to see, please email me ahead of time so I can make sure it is presented and discussed. Hope to see you there!


Ms. Sally and Ms. Nicole
