Happy New Year, WMP families!

We are starting to settle back into our WMP routine. Thank you to all our family and friends who came to the Peace Celebration and all the snacks provided by our dedicated and supportive WMP board. The children were very proud.

You may have noticed our Geography/Cultural shelf filled with European artifacts, art and books. Our artist study shelf is filled with art and books by and about Henri Matisse. The children are enjoying learning about his two styles: painting and cut outs. The children have truly enjoyed getting to know the artists we’ve been studying: Ancient Native American art in November, Vincent Van Gough in September, and Frida Kahlo in October.

The science shelf is also filled with beautiful work, frog life cycles, and soon we will be learning about dinosaurs!!
