End of the School Year, a Family Event


Here is another wonderful post from the excellent teacher, Jennie!

A Teacher's Reflections

“Gloria, we’re going to a castle.
It’s a party for the Aqua Room families.
You’re in charge of the picnic basket.”

“Are you having a fun ride in the wagon?
It’s a long ride up the hill.”

“Whoa!  What is this place?”

“It’s a castle, Bancroft Castle on Gibbet Hill.”

Children ran and played in the old castle ruins.
Families brought a picnic basket.
We ate ice cream, sang songs, and danced together to the Boston robots.

The highlight of the evening was giving families their child’s year-end portfolio,
a collection over each month of art, picture stories, writing, and photos.
For some children, writing their name was a landmark.
For others, it was detailed self-portraits and story telling.
For parents, it was priceless.

A final group photo captured everyone’s personality.
I love this photo!

Here is a video of families enjoying the evening.

Happy Summer,
