...our Flap-a-Thon (originally created by the Montessori School of Madison in March of 2013) for A Place Called Hope was a great success.  The children learned about the needs of birds being rehabilitated by APCH;  they were visited with a Barred Owl, American Kestrel, Broad Winged Hawk and a Screech Owl; and raised $970.00 for APCH!  We will present APCH with our donation when they visit us again in April.  Many thanks to our families for their support!

...Our Madison Village is complete!  Our children, ages 3, 4 & 5, decided which buildings should be included in the town and which geometric solids were needed to make each of the buildings. The children constructed the buildings, placed the buildings and finally, added the landscaping and car! We will have it on display in the office for a short while before (hopefully) donating it to the town hall.

...In keeping with our recycling theme this year, our Family Picnic Committee is organizing a multi-family tag sale to be held on May 18th.  A portion of the money raised from the tag sale will be donated to the Unicef Tap Project which helps to provide clean water to millions of children across the globe.

...Our annual fundraiser was a huge success.  We raised $1165.88 for A Place Called Hope in Killingworth.  The children loved seeing and learning about the birds of prey that APCH brought with them during their two visits to our school.  They know that their hard work is helping to rescue and provide care for injured birds of prey.

...The children collected 123 pairs of socks for Japan.  With each pair of socks an uplifting care letter was sent.  Why socks?  Many survivors of the disaster ended up barefoot after fleeing in a hurry.  In the disaster zone, feet get wet and then extra cold at night.  People often forget about socks in favor of more obvious items like blankets and jackets.  Receiving a new, fresh pair of socks provides a moment of comfort.  When those socks arrive with a caring note as well, it's very heartening for survivors.

Socks for Japan!
