Back to School Week!

In just a matter of days, both boys headed to new classrooms for the school year. Colin was back in his school building since March of 2020, and Owen moved on up to the big kids classroom in his school. We hope the excitement continues well into the school year!

Virtual School is Out!

After a full year of virtual school, Colin made it to the other side! He had amazing academic progress, and was resilient and adaptable to thrive socially, too. We are grateful for the support and guidance of Mr. H, the friends who made shed school possible and the promise of a more normal return to…

Another Back to School Post

It’s a new chapter for O, who like his brother, is heading back to school! We’re very lucky, despite the weeks-long delays with opening, that there are only a couple other kids in his class for now – so he gets personalized attention in as safe an environment as possible.

Back to School (Sort of)

The school year started very differently compared with last year in some ways, but in other ways, it was just as exciting! As everyone began virtually, C joined up with another covid-conscious student to learn together in their amazing one-room school shed.

1st Day of 1st Grade!

And just like that, summer went by in a flash! And like a true pro, with a whole year under his belt, C returned to school with the confidence and excitement of an upper classman. We can’t wait to see what the year holds!

On to First Grade

What a school year it’s been. Thanks to the guidance of Ms. Gutowski and Ms. Burns, Colin has completed Kindergarten. He celebrated with a little graduation ceremony by the Extended Day program, and some fun extra treats to round out the school year!

Hamming it up on Stage

Colin’s first school play – the Three Piggy Opera – was a 25-minute spectacle full of laughs, cries (from the laughing) and 21 Kindergarteners singing and dancing their hearts out. Colin represented the role of Piggy #1 with true commitment. A star is born…

First Day of Kindergarten!

The time had come! After more than 5 years at his beloved daycare/preschool, Mr. C moved on up to Kindergarten. After he handled the morning photo shoot like a trooper, it was off to the gym before joining Ms. Gutowski’s class for the 2018-2019 school year. Go get ’em, C!
