Last day of Labrador Hollow at AoHV!

The children have really enjoyed the Labrador Hollow Learning Program every Friday this month. Last week the children got to dress up and have their picture made and the ladies brought the portraits to us today for them to take home. They also taught the children about being respectful, having patience and listening to their hearts. Today, they taught them how to put the "icing on the cake" and they got to eat their cupcakes at snack time. We are so happy & fortunate to be blessed with the devotion of these teachers & authors that came to visit our school.

Picnic Time At AOHV!

The weather held out long enough for us to enjoy our annual morning spring picnic! The children had yummy sack lunches with goldfish, bananas, cookies, turkey & cheese roll ups and chips. We used blankets to sit on while we listened to the birds chirp, enjoyed the sunshine and felt the wind blow. It's such a nice feeling to know that we create warm and pleasant memories like this spring picnic for these children and parents to remember forever! This event creates a sense of belonging to more than a school, but an intertwined family of parents, caregivers, and the most precious group, your children.

Labrador Hollow Comes To Visit!

Today we had some special guests from Labrador Hollow visit our school to talk about a great program called "Live, Love and Learn". The program is based on the core concepts of positive learning about how to live responsibly in our communities. The stories inspire the children to treat others respectfully, and to follow their heart to become truthful, kind, loyal, committed, confident and passionate individuals. The stories from Labrador Hollow also remind children that we all make mistakes that we learn from and if we fall down, we be brave and get right back up!

Enrichment Time!

Today was music and movement enrichment class at AOHV and it was wonderful! The sounds of laughter filled the halls as the kids held a parachute and bounced an Earth ball on top of it. They enjoyed bubbles and learned how to take turns running under the parachute. This kind of activity is perfect for all ages as it teaches them to learn through physical, visual, and auditory experiences as well as creating a colorful and positive memory that will last a lifetime. Great job listening to the instructions today kids!
