Thank you to our wonderful PTA for yesterday's fabulous "Indoor Picnic".
Due to the heat ,we brought our picnic indoors to our cool and comfortable court-yard.
The children enjoyed the face painting, balloon making and a great picnic lunch along with their families and special guests.
A fun time was had by all.
Thank you PTA!

The farm came to visit us at OWHC yesterday. This was in honor of Lag Ba'omer (rain date).
The children enjoyed the ponies (that came all dressed up).
The petting zoo was fantastic as well. The children had a chance to feed the many different animals.
It was a bit chilly outside but we were happy there was no rain, so that we were able to enjoy the day!

Today , Thursday April 29th,we have an In-service Professional Day set up for our preschool teachers.
We have invited a social worker named Fay Wilbur from Jewish Board of Family Services to speak to us on the detection and prevention of child abuse. This class is a requirement from the state and the offices of children and family services.
Our second speaker is Joseph Fein, who is an attorney for CPSE children. He will be speaking to us on how to advocate for the CPSE children in our classrooms and school.
We are all looking forward to a great day of learning! Elana Helfgott


Yesterday we had a great Parenting workshop entitled"Who's The Boss?"given by our PICC social worker, Margy Ringelheim.
The class was great and we all learned a lot!
Thank you Margy and thank you to all of our parents who stayed,participated and shared. It would be great if we could form a follow up class. Please see me if you are interested.

Yom Ha'atzma'ut

We had a wonderful Yom Ha'atzmaut here at OWHC Preschool. Our Israel parades were great!
Our blue and white "marchers" looked fantastic, and our blue and white cookies were a delicious treat for snack. Happy Birthday Israel!
