Awareness of Others

Awareness projects this 10 weeks will consist of understanding others, showing empathy, and being kind. We will have fun and creative ways to show our appreciation for others and share how we are all alike. First, we will show how it is easy to wrinkle someone’s moment, someone’s day, or someone’s heart if we are not kind toward them. We will discuss different ways to be aware of others’ feelings, emotions, and our own actions. We will create beautiful Rocks of Kindness to share around the school, spreading kindness and encouragement. We will help each other have a reading buddy and make new friends. We will also make a fun project to gift to others at ESE! We will spread kindness and show how we all care about each other.

Lights, Camera, Action: Kind

Creating a play takes a lot of work! We are extending our production preparation through next site plan. We have done a lot of planning, creating, and writing our play, Kind. The kiddos came up with ideas they each wanted the play to be about. We incorporated each idea into a story and they helped create characters and lines for their portion of the play. It has been exciting to see their writing process.

Now, we are ready to begin rehearsal and bring our script to life! We will continue Thursday afternoons from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Please allow your child to stay for the entire club-time if they have a part in the performance or production of Kind. We will need cardboard for our props and backdrops, so please save and bring in your boxes!

Also, please continue to bring in recyclables as we have a new club “Design It Yourself” on Tuesdays, where students can plan, create, invent, and make something new! We will need lots of cardboard pieces and plastics for these projects! We have a bin for recyclables outside of the ESE office.

Don’t forget, we are also participating in the Crayola ColorCycle: collecting used MARKERS, HIGHLIGHTERS and DRY ERASE MARKERS to recycle! There will be a separate bin for your used markers outside of the ESE office as well.

First, I want to say how thankful we are for our parents/guardians understanding and patience during this time. We are in a very unique situation, and your positivity and support for our team means so much! I also wanted to share that during this time we are continuing to pay our full- and part-time staff. I wanted to take this time to reiterate that ESE is closed through April 10 and School’s Out Spring Break Camp is canceled. Refunds/credits have been issued. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Site Supervisor, they will be able to assist you! Should anything change, we will be in contact with you. I also wanted to share some resources for you while you’re home with kiddos. First, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s parks and greenways are still open! Our parks and greenways are a great place for you and your family to get fresh air and stay active while practicing social distancing. We also have several educational resources on our website, carmelclayparks.com/coronavirus-information, in the “Kids at Home?” drop down, and plan to post fitness and nature education content regularly on our social media channels (@CarmelClayParks on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). While we greatly miss seeing your kiddo(s) every day, we know we are doing the right thing to keep our families and staff safe. We will see you soon!
