Classroom Spotlight

The last two weeks of school, our students have been learning about different celebrations around the world such as Kwanza, Hanukkah, Christmas and Día de los Muertos. Our staff went over each celebration and talked about how families celebrated differently.

Ms Alicia shared that a "parent was so pleased to hear that we were doing this and let us know that Día de los Muertos is a huge part to her family they dance every year to honor those who have passed. We though it would be a great idea for her to come in, she was so excited and pleased to come. The kids ABSOLUTELY loved it! After they left some of our students in class were trying to do some of the dances and explain how pretty and beautiful it was."

We are grateful to our parents and community for the diversity they bring to our program. We appreciate having so many perspectives that result in better decision making and problem solving. While we celebrate the holidays in many unique ways with our families, we look forward to being together again in the New Year and continuing to be a positive impact in one another's lives.

Service Spotlight

'Tis the season of giving, and we are astonished by the generosity of our community. Not only did you show up in a big way for our Mobile Classroom on Colorado Gives Day, but you also gave selflessly to our families for the Holidays.

A special thank you to Judy Davis and her "Books and Cooks" book club for their truckload of donations to the students and families in our programs. From bicycles, to electronic readers, Legos and gift cards, it's a great feeling to know that our students will open a gift during the break that will double as a tool for continued learning.

Likewise, a sincere thank you to Lucy, Micah, Mikayla and Luke from the Silver Creek Leadership Academy who dropped off boxes upon boxes of school supplies and bi-lingual books to send home with our families this holiday. We are so excited to see these budding community members show up in a big way and look forward to seeing their continued impact as they take on their Senior Capstone Project next year.

We can always count on Kiwanis Longmont and the Rotary Club of Twin Peaks for their Holiday Support. Kiwanis Longmont has committed to putting together holiday gift bags for each of our 155 preschoolers to take home and it sure is fun to see the smile on our student's faces. And what is Winter Break without your very own book from Twin Peaks Rotary to snuggle up and read with your family? It's not easy to find bilingual children's books, but Rotary continues to take an extra step to be sure that every student has a special book to call their own.
