We would like to welcome back all of our returning children and families and extend a warm welcome to all of our new children and families.
September is always a time of excitement, yet with that comes anxiety and nervousness for many children and parents alike. We will do our best to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible and to ensure that each child feels loved, respected, and safe. Our peaceful school and caring teachers and staff go the extra mile to provide a welcoming environment. Our goal at FWM is for every child to leave with a life-long love for learning, the ability to collaborate with others, and the confidence, courage, and compassion to excel in life. Please contact me if you have any concerns.
I leave you with a poem,
A Poem for Parents: Nothing
When children come home at the end of the day,
The question they’re asked as they scurry to play is,
“What did you do at school today?”
And the answer they give
makes you sigh with dismay.
“Nothing, I did nothing today!”
Perhaps nothing means
that I played with blocks, counted to ten, or sorted some rocks.
Maybe I painted or learned to tie my shoe
Or learned what happens when you mix red and blue
Maybe I learned to tuck in my chair and put my work away
Or maybe I learned to be kind to a friend while I was playing outside today,
Maybe my scissors followed a line and I learned to write my name.
Maybe I learned some sounds or numbers or learned to play a new game,
Maybe I made a craft or sang a song from beginning to end,
Or maybe I learned to play with a special, brand new friend.
When you’re in preschool
And your heart has wings, “Nothing” can mean so many, many things.
