Sunny Days and Smiling Faces

It has been another wonderful week at Maayan.  Students are working on Chanukah projects and learning so many different lessons and concepts in each class.  Even though it has been sunny outside, it is very cold.  Please make sure your child is coming to class with warm jackets and sweaters for recess.  We look forward to seeing you all tonight at our school Chanukah event at 6:00pm!

We had a very fun visitor to school this last week.  Mr. Lizard came with so many interesting and fun reptiles for students to see and learn about.
