What A Week!

Wrapping Up An Exciting Pumpkin Unit

This week, Kindergarten pumpkin experts shared all of their pumpkin knowledge with their families during our beautiful Pumpkin Feast! This festive event was truly special for Kindergarteners, as they have been working quite hard to prepare their pumpkin facts, create a unique pumpkin necklace, learn pumpkin songs, and practice speaking in front of an audience. Kindergarten pumpkin experts did a fabulous job sharing all they know about pumpkins! Parents did a lovely job supplying a fabulous spread of pumpkin foods, and we thank you!

Halloween Carnival Fun 

Kindergarteners were thrilled to participate in their 1st Annual Halloween Carnival. Kindergarteners lead our costume contest in which they paraded around the backyard showing off their costumes. Kindergarteners were then free to participate in the various Halloween booths that were created by the lovely Fifth Graders. These included a Cake Walk, Haunted House, Tattoos, Face Painting and many more…. TCS students got together at the end and received prizes for their costumes. It was a fun day for all!

Natural Dyes With Rose Wirtz

On Thursday, Kindergarten students experienced a beautiful lesson in painting with natural dyes, by local artist and former Cooper School parent, Rose Wirtz. Rose visited with Kindergarteners under the oak tree to demonstrate the process she uses for creating a rainbow of dyes using items found in nature. Stay tuned for the unfolding of this exciting project!
