The month of September has truly been a blast! We came into the new MAP year excited to welcome both new and familiar faces! We also welcomed three new, amazing MAP teachers, Eric Adams, Maddie Hollis, and most recently, Desiree Ladd, who the kids have already seemed to value and enjoy spending time with at MAP. During the first MAP week, our newcomers adjusted well to our daily routines and those who attended MAP last year had no issue in showing them the ropes! Through donation, we received a Rokenbok construction system and a miniature pool table which were both incredibly popular this month.
During our special sign-up day, the kids enjoyed spending time uptown while on a photo scavenger hunt. We also had lunch at the Medfield House of Pizza and graciously got gum from Bubble Gum Bob. We then journeyed over to Vinelake Cemetary and had an amazing time fishing and playing Manhunt.
September was a month jam-packed with awesome projects and activities. To list a few, we created mini chalkboards with Leah, made a delicious popcorn/candy mix with Maddie and watched "
during our early-release, “Popcorn/Movie Day”. We created adventurous Dungeons and Dragons stories with Tom, built a majestic styrofoam structure with Eric that was inspired by the outdoor phenomenon “Teepee Town and we ended the month with stepping into fall by decorating wreaths and candleholders with Katelyn. We are incredibly excited for all that is to come next month, we have no doubt that it’ll be MAPtastic!
