Smiling, squealing, Kindergarten “Mariposas” had a lovely first week of school, continuing several long-held Rainbow Mountain traditions. Beginning with themselves, students created self portraits, talked about their families, and each day shared individual reflections at the Closing Circle. Every morning with friends they explored their classroom finding seashells, river rocks, blocks, kitchen items, wooden animals, magic stones and much more. Along with teachers Doreen and Joy, they sang songs, did yoga, created watercolors, heard stories and learned how to “shake their sillies out!” Within the wider Rainbow community, they hosted a visit by the first grade class, introduced themselves to director Renee Owen, and played soccer with the second and third grade students. Mariposas will have numerous enriching experiences as they cross the bridge between the magical, creative playfulness of preschool and the cognitive development of the elementary years.

Our silly Mariposas!
