For over 10 years LWTG has supported Foster Children at Olive Crest, Bellevue. We have the wonderful opportunity again this year to help Foster Children by: 1) making a cash donation and Teacher Kris will shop for items; 2) sponsor a child personally (gifts are in the $25-$50 range); 3) sponsor a child / children as a class (contact your Parent Co-ordinator if you wish to do this) or 4) donate a small holiday party item (playdough, crayons, balls, cars, Polly Pockets, art materials, $10 gift cards to Target, I-Tunes, McDonalds, Walmart, etc). Teachers will collect donations in class and forward them to Teacher Kris. (NOTE: If you are donating a gift please ensure it is provided unwrapped, thank you!).

Helping kids read emotions and develop empathy is an ongoing process and can’t be taught in a few days or weeks. Children need lots of opportunities to learn about how others feel through experiences and through repetition. Melissa will share 3 specific strategies to help foster empathy in our children.
Melissa is a well respected speaker in our Community. More information about Melissa and her work can be found by visiting Grow Parenting.

Parent Evening (LWTG Classroom): A Preschool Information Panel will be held to inform our parents about the different types of preschools in our community and why they were a good fit for our panel members and their families. This is a valuable talk to attend as our speakers will give great insight into differences between Co-ops, Daycare, Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Waldorf schools etc.
[NOTE: This is not the same as the Preschool Night which is held in January 2014. The Preschool Night is a Fair where Preschools in the district have booths and are available to chat to parents about their school].
