If you have been following Ascension's coin collection, you remember that the top-collecting class would get to throw a pie into Mrs. Polega's face!   PK 4 collected the most money for the Teach the Children Fund Raiser.  However, PK-4 students opted to eat pie with Mrs. Polega instead of throwing one at her. That's Love, Kindness and Respect!

Today, the M-W-F PK3 children listened to the story The Enormous Watermelon by Brenda Parkes. This delightful story is about Old Mother Hubbard. She planted a watermelon seed when her cupboard was bare. When an enormous watermelon grew she need help Humpty Dumpty and other nursery rhyme characters to pull the watermelon out of the ground. Mrs. Bracco demonstrated how Watermelon Slime was made and then the children were able to play with the slime. We also tasted watermelon and made a slice of watermelon using torn paper and a paper plate..

PK3 has been studying the life cycle of butterflies over the last few weeks.  We learned that caterpillars, grow bigger, make a cocoon or chrysalis and then become beautiful butterflies.  This week our butterflies were ready to be released into nature.  See pictures in our Butterfly Gallery!
