Zooming Right Along

Zoom meeting with faculty and admin tonight, just to say hi and check in with each other. 117 people signed in - hope to see even more people next week! I have to be honest, I didn't realize how much I've missed seeing these familiar faces, even though it's only been a little more than a week. I realize how different this is from a regular vacation/summer break, and I'm grateful for the connection. Now that we've had some time to get used to all of this, the next step is to set up a check-in with our EDP families - stay tuned!







GETTING SOME WORK DONE...?

I Love my coworkers but they are somewhat unmotivated.
Can't wait to get out of the home office!
Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

Teacher Observation Time....

LOVE a good old fashioned game of Musical Chairs...who knew it could still interest 5th and 6th graders!



Pittaway Variety Show

The Pittaway EDP had their annual Variety Show this past Friday night.  The kids were fantastic, as usual!  They are some seriously awesome dancers, and their parents were hooting and hollering from the audience.  A special THANK YOU to everyone who helped out behind the scenes.  





It's Showtime!

Mindess EDP had its first Drop-In Dance Class on Tuesday as Ashland High School junior, Shelly Neerman, has volunteered to spearhead a 10-week program. The first 4 classes will be drop-in classes so any interested student has an opportunity to explore the world of dance. Following the drop-in period, a more formal 6-week program will begin. We are very excited at what the students accomplished in their first class and look forward to what is to come!



"Now Boarding"

"Now boarding EDP Airlines Flight 240 to...Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and Honolulu...pick your vacation!"  The annual Warren EDP Variety Show took place February 12.  Everyone enjoyed watching all of the acts as they performed "Vacation", "Miami", "Old Town Road",  "Surfin' USA", and "Hawaiian Rollercoaster Ride", along with an EDP Flight Crew and a skit about getting through airport security.   Our young actors were fabulous, and the audience was pumped.   Way to go, Warren EDP!

"The fondest memories are made gathered around the table...." The annual 6th Grade Cooking Club Dinner was held Thursday night and attended by all of the participants' parents and siblings. Everyone enjoyed the meal which consisted of baked chicken, twice baked potatoes, roasted carrots, garden salad, and chocolate mousse in graham cracker crusts. The 6th graders began cooking at 3:30 and were ready to serve by the time the guests arrived at 6:00. Throughout the 4-week program the 6th graders worked on cleanliness, safety, knife skills, following a recipe, timing, measuring accurately, doubling and halving a recipe, learning to crack eggs, using a griddle, hand mixer, and other kitchen tools, and teamwork. At the end of the evening, all of the students were encouraged to continue their culinary journey and were given a copy of Williams-Sonoma "Cookbook for Kids"


















Welcome Home

A very special program at the Pittaway EDP is the 6th Grade Volunteers.  Throughout the school year, the 6th graders from the Mindess EDP come over to our program and help out with the younger students.  

The Kindergarten students LOVE having their "big kid friends" over.  Recess is super fun, especially when the 6th graders begin a game of tag.  The 6th graders eat snack with our kiddos and sit on the rug at story time.  Once in a while, a 6th grader will volunteer to read that day's story.  Project and Gym Sessions are a great time for the 6th graders to help out, and they like to do the project too!

LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT!

CHILDREN ARE OFTEN QUITE BUSY THESE DAYS, 
SO WHEN OPPORTUNITIES TO ENJOY THE SMALL MOMENTS IN A LONG DAY COME ALONG,
THEY SHOULD BE CHERISHED.
    


HAPPY NEW YEAR!
