Outdoor Environment Upgrade

We are proud to announce that the outside of the Foxworthy campus got refreshed with a few more plants. It was a lot to be done and it took a big group of volunteers many hours of work, but in the end two 10 gal. trees, one 5 gal. bush & two 1 gal. bushes have been planted. Also, mulch got spread by the new school sign and by the courtyard area next to the office and infant community windows.

Many thanks to all the wonderful families that volunteer to help us, and to our staff members & their families for joining the team. Also, we would like to thank Our City Forest who delivered the trees and brought a large group of high school volunteers. They also brought plenty of tools for everyone, making our work much easier.

Lunar New Year Celebration

CMP-166

Last week, our Primary children celebrated Lunar New Year. Many wore red or traditional costumes as a part of the celebration. The children also cooked dumplings, colored masks and had their faces painted in the manner of Chinese opera performers. The children at the Foxworthy campus heard the story of the Nian Dragon, and why wearing red, eating dumplings and setting off firecrackers are part of the Lunar New Year tradition. They where also introduced to Chinese music through performances of different instruments and demonstrations of Chinese Opera singing. At the end of the ceremony, Rebecca, head of the Primary school and Jeanette, head of the Elementary school came to give each child their traditional red envelope with good luck money inside. At lunch time they where treated to Chinese samples of food.

Just Breathe

“Your blood keeps pumping because, like, you’re really mad. And you start to get sweaty because you’re getting really, really mad. And then when you start getting really mad, you turn red.”

Entirely un-scripted, this video was filmed on a Saturday afternoon with students of Citizens of the World Charter School in Mar Vista, California, and their families. These 6-year old kids began learning mindfulness techniques in Kindergarten and can teach us all a thing or two about coping with difficult emotions.

Watch the video here.
