Welcome to our new students! 

August 2015

The children had an exciting and fun-filled summer – they participated in science experiments, gardening, creative arts and music.  They had a blast creating their body doubles, learning about Newton’s Laws of Motion by creating their own balloon powered cars and learning about solar energy from a 20 feet solar balloon.  The children also enjoyed the visiting animals from the Greenburgh Nature Center located in Scarsdale, and had a blast dancing and clapping to the music of the famous child entertainer, Kurt Gallagher who visited us for our end-of-summer entertainment.
