SYC teachers volunteered their last weeks of summer this year, to undertake a new project of organization. After 46 years (SYC began in 1969) things began to accumulate. It was time to carefully purge unneeded and unused items and clean. Thanks to the extra week of volunteering, we were able to complete our project during teacher work week and start the year off fresh. We created a central storage area for all the classrooms, and were able to declutter the classes to make them more visually appealing to the children, teachers and parents. We’ve already received great feedback from returning SYC parents on the new spaces!
The 2015-2016 school year has started. With the church construction, drop off and pick ups have been a little more challenging than in previous years, due to the lack of parking spaces. We developed a plan to alleviate some of that stress of finding a parking space. We are thankful to the parents for working on this with us. We know that the inconvenience will be short lived and the improvements made in the building will be worth it.
The fall like weather really made it feel like the start of the school year. Kids are still settling in and exploring their new environments, discovering new/old things, starting to make new friendships and of course playing. We look forward to what the year will bring us.
