Dear Parents,

These past two weeks we introduced African animals. We had an African safari which the children enjoyed so much. Each child was given a clipboard with a check list of African animals, a safari hat, and a safari vest. The classroom was transformed into a safari which the children were pleased to see. The children had to search the classroom for the African animals and to keep track of the animals they discovered. It was wonderful to observe children pair up with their friends to find the animals around the classroom. It was a pleasure to hear the excitement in their voice when the children discovered an animal. After the African safari, the children enjoyed mini cupcakes, fresh fruit and listened to African music. We had such a great time during our African safari and hopefully you had conversations about their trip.

Thank you for your continued support.

Warm Regards,

Ms. Victoria, Ms. Francine, and Ms. Nancy
