Stop and socialize after drop off on Friday, November 22. Coffee and tea will be available in the LS Lobby from 7:30-8am. Stay for the LS Parent Partnership meeting at 8am or come just for the social 1/2 hour. Looking forward to seeing you. All parents and caregivers are welcome!
Broadening Social Circles
We will explore this month’s wellness theme of “Risk Taking” with a look at social connections and cultural literacy. LS Teachers Anthony Villasenor (Grade One), Suzanne Lee (Grade Three) and Adelaide Wainwright (Grade Four) will share examples from the classrooms and lead a conversation about ways families can begin to broaden their circles to include new people and ideas. Anthony, Suzanne and Adelaide are also parents of OES lower school students. This will be the first in a series of meetings around this robust topic -- bring your thoughts and questions!
