Parent Recognition Night
It has become a tradition to have the members of the sports teams recognize publicly the appreciate they have for all the encouragement and support they have received from their parents. Each team member - soccer, basketball, volleyball - presented their parent(s), or stand-in if the parent was unable to attend, with a long-stemmed carnation.

Rural Arts Grant Update

much discussion, we are changing the “House Parties” from Sunday to
Saturday, until school gets out in June. The
time will remain
until summer, as well.
Our intent has been to provide a setting where all generations can gather
for music, story-telling and conversation. Although
we have been happy with the level of participation, we continue to hear that
Sunday makes it difficult for those with small children, or who need to prepare
to get back to work on Monday. This
change is to try to ease those difficulties, and maintain the enthusiasm we’ve
seen so far. The next House Party
will be Saturday, March 8, at the home of Karen and Adam Wirth.
Come join in the fun!
T-shirt project –originally planned for St. Patrick’s Day – has been
postponed until summer. This will
give us more time to work out problems with the design, and a larger audience
have had a good response to our “After-School Art” program.
About thirty children helped Deborah Harwood decorate valentine cookies
last Monday. At this time, at least
twelve children are signed up for each of the scheduled activities.
Wednesday” enrichment classes are going well, too.
Chinese cooking was a big hit on January 29, with fifteen participants
dicing, chopping and stir-frying. The
highlight of the evening was the delicious meal that we’d all had so much fun
preparing. Special Desserts and Cake
Decorating, taught by Sarah Myers and Tammy LaFreniere is scheduled for February
19. Cheryl Podgorski’s Herbal
Workshop will be held February 26. Although
enough people have registered (we require a minimum of 6) so that both of these
classes will definitely be held, there is still room for more.
The March schedule offers Leather
craft with Kevin Bousquet on March 5, Music Appreciation and Voice with Martha
Guth on March 19, and another Herbal Workshop with Cheryl Podgorski on March 26.
Flyers are available at the Post Office, with all activities listed.
We appreciate prior
registration; please call Cindy at
2960 to register.
