Let's get physical! On Wednesday, we held our incredible Jog-a-Thon. This is an event that has always been hosted at Sacred Heart Academy, but it's the first annual Jog-a-Thon for our preschool. It was so much fun and, while we don't have an exact figure yet, we have raised over $6,000 as of today! A HUGE thank-you to all of our families!!! And a HUGE thank-you to all who volunteered to help run the operation!!!
Our children jogged their little hearts out!
We also enjoyed a calming, professionally instructed yoga class. Angela from YogaSprouts volunteered her time and ran three separate classes as we rotated from the Jog-a-Thon track, yoga class and playing in the playground. We were so impressed with Angela and her yoga instruction, we're hoping she'll return soon!
We're growing by leaps and bounds!
Back in my classroom, we worked on our Y-Yaks. By next week, we'll have finished the alphabet!
Let me zoom in a bit on that last photo. Meet Miss Lauren, my new classroom teacher. This has been her first couple of days at Sacred Heart (and what a couple of days!) and we already all adore her.
We also made our y-yarn!
Meanwhile, Miss Kim's class experimented with melting ice (I is for Ice!) by creating their works of art.
Miss Gabriella's class created their works of art, too!
We definitely had a busy week in preschool...
...but it's so much fun!!!
