HAPPY BIRTHDAY PALMER!
Thank you for the wonderful creations that the children made for Palmer! He was feeling a bit shy today but will look them over at home when he's ready. If the one your child created is easily mailed, we encourage you to mail it. It was fun to hear one of his favorite Charlie Brown stories. Thanks for reading to us Jennie!
Birthdays From a Distance...
Birthdays are a very important St. John's tradition and thus we want to try and make them as meaningful as possible for the children we are celebrating, despite the distance. In the upcoming weeks we have 5 more birthdays to celebrate: Ellie, Wolf M, Fletcher, Emilia and Wolf B. We appreciate your support in creating something for each birthday child and being on Zoom calls to be part of the celebrations.
Of her drawing, Lane noted, "The pink is lemonade. The black is a rock. The other colors are lava and the rock is hopping over the lava. The lemonade cools off the lava. And the lemonade turns to ice and you can ice skate."
Fletcher built a tunnel.
Wolf M constructed a train track. He showed us his wobbly bridge and a tree with a squirrel on top!
Palmer built a police station.
Olivia build a playground.
Cannon used play-doh during the workshop and here's what he said about his creation:
These are the penguins. This is egg that's about to hatch out (indicating the egg on the feet of the adult penguin) and this is the other baby.
