On Wednesday, July 25, 2018, Primary children will visit the Princeton Art Museum. The purpose of the trip is three-fold: to expose the children to real art, to teach them art museum etiquette, and to inspire their creativity.
On this day, students will depart from school at 9:30 am and arrive back to school at 11:15 am. They will have lunch upon their return.
We will not be visiting the gift shop. Please do not send money with your child. The trip will take place rain or shine. If it is raining, the children will need raincoats; please do not bring umbrellas.
What to bring/wear:
- Wear comfortable walking shoes (no flip flops)
- Wear raincoats as needed (no umbrellas)
Please submit your permission by Monday, July 23rd.
Lower Elementary students visited the Primary Rose room to read the story of “The Hungry Caterpillar” to the students. They each read a page which they had illustrated using the uniquecollage technique of illustration used by the author, Eric Carle. There are many opportunities throughout the year for older students in the school to connect with and mentor younger children. Students of all ages enjoy developing these nurturing relationships.
