I'm linking up with Sugar and Spice for Wordless Wednesday!
The pictures above say it all, but I'd like to explain a bit further. I'm going to start with...Wow! What a night my husband and I had at our own children's Curriculum Night. It was comparable to our date nights out on the town.
Our twins recently turned 3 years old and now attend preschool (mixed with a dash of daycare) at Little People's Country near our home. An invite to attend Curriculum Night was placed in their cubby. After reading the invitation, our curiosity was piqued. Wine and cheese being served...at a school...on Curriculum Night? For the 19 years I've been in education, I could never imagine massages with liquor being served at my own school.
On the day of the event, we were sent a friendly reminder through our parent-teacher communication *lifeline* called Life Cubby. The reminder came in the form of an online photograph of a hand-decorated sign saying, "Welcome to Parent Night". If you haven't heard of Life Cubby, it's an online parent-engagment and communication platform. It is a fantastic way for the teachers to communicate the classroom happenings throughout the day with parents. I find it especially helpful with my little preschoolers because when I ask them them what they did at school, they usually respond, "Play!" With Life Cubby, I get updates and pictures at the end of each school day of my kids participating in hands-on learning centers. It better prepares me for the conversations with my little ones at the dinner table. ;)
Anyway, as my husband and I entered, we were led into the art studio to be welcomed. We were given wine, cheese, crackers and an array of fruit with...(drum roll, please)... MASSAGES! My husband is in the picture above getting his massage after a long day of teaching Art to K-6 students. ;)
Following the massages, we were corralled into our children's classroom (with food and drink refills) to listen to the teachers explain the curricula and routines of the little ones. When they were finished, the teachers handed us a packet of information and flowers to thank us for attending the event but, most importantly, for being significant partners in our children's education.
It was quite an experience! Has anyone else out there been to a Curriculum Night similar to this one?
