As a registered WE School, we do an annual Water Walk in support of providing clean water for those living in rural areas of our sponsor country, Kenya. This year, our preschool was able to raise $1684, providing clean water for an entire village ($1250) plus 17 other people ($25/pp) with clean water for life. This allows the children in these villages to attend school instead of making several trips back and forth to carry water home for their families. Thank you to all of those who contributed!
We finished our nutrition course here at the preschool with our friend Freddie Fruits and Vegetables. We did this in various ways, such as making art with fruits & veggies, cooking applesauce, making carrots and lemon, eating some lemons (then turning them into lemonade for improved taste!), and finally planting some veggies in the garden that we will check on after Spring Break!
We had a surprise thanks to our wonderful BMP mom, with LOTS of pink in support of anti-bullying efforts!
We had a wonderful Lunar New Year celebration thanks to a former BMP mom who brought a storytelling dragon to share about the new year. More exciting for the children was when the dragon gave each of them a lucky red envelope with a treat!
As with every holiday season, we were busy baking and building away to prepare for our Christmas concert with Mr. I and the Rainbow Singers, and what a celebration it was!
Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes in the New Year. See you all in 2019!
