Happy Thanksgiving Congdon Park Families!
This time of the year gives all of us the opportunity to stop and think about what Giving Thanks really means. It is an opportunity for families to be together and to be present. At our house it is a time of sharing, so everyone can have fun without being too overwhelmed. This year we will have about 10 people at our table. This year I am in charge of the turkey, stuffing, and rolls, my mother, (who just turned 87) will bring the potatoes and the great pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream of course! Overall, everyone will contribute something to this beautiful meal.
Just Simply Being Together and Giving Thanks
Simply stated, it is about the simple things in life that do make a difference. Establishing routines that we all look forward to, for it is so comforting. And so comes another celebration with the people that I love, for that is something we should never take for granted. Appreciate the simple pleasures that this time of year brings. Possibly invite someone over who may not have family nearby to be a part of your special day. What could be better than that?
At Congdon, we continue to celebrate learning each day. We have established our routines, we hold the children accountable, and we watch them learn. Did I say, watch them learn? Yes, it has been amazing to see the continued growth both socially and academically in every child in just a short time. Taking time to talk with your child about school is so important. Listening to their stories about what they are learning is such a great opportunity to get involved with your child’s education.
Powerful Learning in a Peaceful Environment!
Congdon families continue being involved in the education of their children… we appreciate, we are thankful, but more importantly we care. We want our children to notice and remember, to celebrate and smile, and to simply be Thankful for who they are.
With great pride and peace,
