One Hundred Day Poem

We’ve come to school for 100 days,
The time has just flown by.
Five months, two seasons and we’re half way done,
When another surprise does arrive.
It’s the 100th day of school today.
Let’s start the day with a grin.
For tomorrow will be 101,
So let the celebration begin.

Stepping Up For the Environment

Stepping Up For the

 Gardening - Kids & Teacher

There are a lot of ways you can teach your child to help our environment.  They can help recycle, plant trees at your home, understand the importance of not to litter or simply make sure lights and/or water are turned off when not being used.  In order to get the message across to our preschoolers, on March 30, 2012 the Goddard School in Chalfont will be hosting
a Stepping Up For the Environment event.  The school will turn off all the lights at 10:00 a.m. and have the children participate in fun, earth friendly activities such as reading books about our environment, learning an earth song, decorating a light switch,
creating an earth cookie, and making an earth friendly poster with their classmates.

Raising our children to be aware of the environment and how to take care of it will help them live a clean and environment conscious life from now to years to come.
