A New Year

A new year, new challenges. Hopefully, this year will be a little more organized in the way of putting up our newsletters. In the meantime, the real reason I’m back is because I need your help!

B’ezras¬†Hashem, we are expecting at¬†least ten girls on the first day of school this year. What an excitement! Doubling our class size over the summer can only mean that the last school year was marked with success.

Some of the things we accomplished last year include

  • the purple group learned to read! At the end of the school year, they were able to read complete stories, and answer questions to show they understood.
  • we learned to count, and we recognize numbers through eighteen!
  • we learned to sit nicely when we eat, not to talk or walk while eating, and how to ask for the foods we want.

Now that summer is almost over, it’s time to start preparing for the new school year. Last year, in our class of five students, we fit nicely around a single table. The pretty new chairs though, were too low for the table! That’s because we got chairs to fit a child’s body, not an adult. Instead of using the new chairs when we were at the table, we sat on grown-up chairs. It was harder to sit nicely with our feet down, though, and sometimes we fell off. This year, We would like to have new tables, the right size for the chairs.

We need help though! In order to have new tables, we need to raise almost $300 in the next few days. Otherwise, the tables may not be delivered in time for the first day of school.

New Cubbies!

I can’t wait for school to start again next week, thanks to all the wonderful donors out there! The new cubbies arrived today, and are in the process of being assembled. By Monday morning, the preschool students will be able to put their things away without trouble. Each girl will have her own double hook for her jacket and knapsack, and a shelf on top for storing snacks and extra clothing. What a difference that will make! Right now, they stuff their jackets, knapsacks, change of clothes, supply boxes, and projects into little square foot cubbies, so every time they want to take something out, everything lands on the floor. Watch for pictures, to be posted next week!
