I hope you all had a great week! I wanted to take a moment to share an exciting new component of our program here at Achieve Preschool! Please, don't worry, we are not establishing a petting zoo, but I would like to take a moment to introduce you to Daisy. She is a chicken who is going to be a part of our first community service project.
While academics are an important part of what we do here, there is much more to your child's education than just learning their letters, shapes, colors, and numbers. The social and emotional component of their education is just as important. To meet this need, along with our Character Trait that we focus on each month, we will be adding a community service project. These projects, while fun and engaging, also serve another purpose. It is my goal to introduce the children to becoming productive and supportive members of their community while helping those around them.
For anyone following the blog, you are aware of the wonderful experience my family and I had at the Gentle Barn located in Santa Clarita. If you missed this post, please check out "An Amazing Family Experience." After having spent time here, seeing the animals first hand and witnessing the healing these animals have received, Daisy a chicken from the Gentle Barn will be a part of our first community service project. Let me explain what we will be doing for our project for August.
Please meet Daisy http://www.gentlebarn.org/virtual_barn.php . She is a chicken that needs some love and compassion. Achieve Preschool will be sponsoring Daisy for $5 per month, so that she will continue to receive the love, care, and food that has helped with her rehabilitation. We will earn the $5 for Daisy by beginning a recycling program. It is my hope that by establishing the recycling program and having the children help to earn the money for Daisy, we will begin on an exciting road of compassion and helping to care for others in need.
Starting tomorrow, there will be a bin located by the front door. If you would like to have your child participate with this project, please have them deposit any aluminum cans or plastic bottles that they would like to recycle to help earn money to care for Daisy. I will keep you posted as to our progress towards our goal of earning $5 per month.
As always, I thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free talk to me, call me, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
