In the month of October we had many celebrations that gave us the opportunity to connect as a community and as a village. It was beautiful to see the collaboration of our parents working together. Through our different committees, we all worked together to prepare for Grandparents & Special People Day and Halloween. We also came together with the Outreach Committee and began collecting donations for Feeding South Florida to benefit those affected by Hurricane Michael. We thank all of our families who have donated to this cause as we continue receiving donations every day. It is only with the help of invested parents that we can grow and strengthen our community, and I am so thankful for the parents we have as part of our group. Our school doors are always open to you, and you are always welcomed and encouraged to participate.
La Piazza represented our school at the BKB Fair this month. Meeting with other schools in our community was a great experience, and it makes us feel proud to be pioneers in progressive education, where we value our children’s socioemotional development. We want our children to excel in all areas – emotional, interpersonal, academic, creative and social. We strive as a school to give our children and families the tools to accomplish all this, and more.
In the spirit of community, we will celebrate our first Community Day on November 9th and we will have our annual Thanksgiving Feast for the children on Tuesday, November 20th. At the end of the month, on November 28th and 29th, we will have our Scholastic Book Fair.
As always, I welcome you to engage in these activities and make even more connections to fellow parents. It is beautiful to see us come together, grow and depend on each other as members of a village and a family.
