Come Find Out What’s Going On At J.O. Wilson!

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

We’re back and delighted to share a snippet (or two, three) of our LITTLE FRIENDS over at J.O. Wilson Elementary! They have  been having tons of fun and cool adventures with Site Coordinator Ms. Helene and staff; along with enrichment instructors, Mr. Dale (Capoeira) and Ms. Ayana (Yoga).

It also looks like our friendly Kindergarten faces had a friendship-bracelet and necklace making party! At CES, we truly love arts + crafts because that’s the perfect time to let our students be creative and artsy in their own way; and with their own imagination! Let’s take a look:

PS: Ms. Helene, your friends at Bancroft say HEY!

BANCROFT | Mother’s Day + Crafts Recap

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

On last week at Bancroft we celebrated our MOTHERS every single day! CES MOMS, did you receive at least 5 special somethings, well put together by your little one(s)? You should have! Because they worked so very hard on their mini projects in showing their love for you.

There were even some students creating double of the same project and I asked, “Oh are you making one for your grandmother too?!” Wellllll unfortunately that was NOT the case, and instead ALL for you, MOM!

**One thing about craft time at Bancroft, I instruct the teachers to allow their students to be creative in their very own way, by themselves. I think it’s important to watch and help from a distance in implementing fun + creativity; and also gives them some free space to come up with their own ideas!

Here’s what they did:

A Look Into Art Class — BUILDING A DRUM 101

Did you know, that you could build a drum using only 2 supplies: Styrofoam cups + tape!? We didn’t either until our art teacher, Ms. Queen successful showed us a quick How To! Our CES kids certainly had a lot of fun with this one — and couldn’t wait to beat on the drum in their own little way 🙂

But of course parents, I’m sure you’ve have enough of this so called drum beating by now!
