Hold on to your socks - Here comes Goldilocks!

What's going on in Chets Creek Kindergartens these last weeks of school? Teachers have been preparing for many end of the year special events. Today the school began the hot Friday morning with a meaningful flag retirement. In Kindergarten teacher Haley Alvarado's class, they welcomed fathers for a "Donuts for Dads" breakfast in celebration of Father's Day. The children pinned special handmade ties on their dads and then read them the paper they had filled out. I think the dads might have enjoyed that their kindergartner thinks they weigh 32 pounds and are 56 years old! Mrs. Alvarado read a book to the kids and their dads about the 10 best things about dads and then each child came to the front and presented a special certificate to their Dad for something special. It was heartwarming to see so many Dads at school.

Soon it was time in Mrs. Alvarado's class to present their "play." This year they did a humorous musical about "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." The children had practiced their songs and speaking parts for weeks and were just so proud of themselves as they sang their little hearts out! Enjoy these snippets from Mrs. Alvarado's morning.

Yes, it is hard to believe, but this dad has the wrinkles to prove that another year has indeed passed by. I think Ms. Alvorado's ideas are awesome!
