RECAP | Black History Month + Valentine’s Day Projects

Hello Parents, Friends and Guardians!

Hope that everyone has been well and warm during the last few days of freezing weather — brrrr!

So last week was fun-filled (no surprise here!), as all of our classes got right to work celebrating Black History Month and our beloved LOVE holiday = Valentine’s Day!

Each class completed one project of each with our ever so crafty and creative teachers.

Here’s what happened!

Introducing… Our Partnership With Jumpstart!

As many of you know, at the start of 2015, we officially began our partnership with  an amazing organization called Jumpstart.

Jumpstart is a national early education organization working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart delivers a research-based and cost-effective program by training college students and community volunteers to work with preschool-age children in low-income neighborhoods. Through a proven curriculum, these children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for kindergarten, setting them on a path for lifelong success. Additionally, they work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.

Jumpstart is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network.

Our group of Jumpstarters hail from American University and work/play with our Pre K-4 and Pre K-3ers. They visit our After School program on Monday & Thursdays, in which they have already completed some fun + engaging projects to include (but not limited to):

  • Dramatic Play
  • Sing-A-Longs
  • Story Time (w/comprehensive activity)
  • Painting

And much more!
