‘HAPPY’ TO BE DANCING…. and singing, reading, writing & creating, with CCP: CCP kids are practicing a singing-and-dancing routine with singer-choreographer Emily Kritzer, which they’ll be performing for parents very soon! As another part of embracing the arts, we recently visited the San Jose Art Museum, and kids are now designing and painting their own Fairy Houses (made from shoeboxes), and writing about how they envision these imaginary dwellings. Students keep growing their vocabularies with CCP’s “Word of the Day” journaling, and our penpal program with Los Gatos Elementary School continues as kids have sent off their first letters of the school year to students across the valley. So much gratitude to this semester’s SJSU & other mentors — who continue to make all the difference for our students.
