Mrs. G, our school counselor, has a student intern. Today, Ms. Wilcox taught her first while-group lesson (adorable!), and used Amanda Panda to discuss and role play acts of kindness.
What can you do if you see someone trying to find a place to sit?
Someone dropped a glove?
Someone looks lonely on the playground?
You have to find a partner?
Someone fell down?

We have just returned from our annual winter walk at Great Pond in Cape Elizabeth. Cape Elizabeth Land Trust's own Lisa Gent and Suzanne McGinn again hosted us this year. They are amazing trail guides and seem to find many things that the untrained eye would never see. A special thanks to Tim and Nina, our parent chaperones, for helping to keep the kids focused...a tough job in the awesome snowfest of the woods! And extra thanks to CELT's Suzanne and Lisa!
a cold, blustery, snowy day!

In the winter, trees hold heat from the sun, so the snow around the bottom of the tree stayed melted and makes a ring.
