Wonder Wednesday Storytime and Art Project All Summer


St. Gabriel Episcopal School is happy to once again present “Wonder Wednesday” storytime and art project on summer Wednesdays 10:45-11:45 am June 28th- August 30th 2017 at the school at 17435 NW West Union Rd. Portland, Or 97229 in the Bethany area of NW Portland/Beaverton/Hillsboro.

Each week we will choose a theme and read two picture books on that theme out loud, do some wondering, then present an art project connected to the stories we just heard. Art projects will include drawing, painting, mixed media, and sensory experiences. Story reading and art projects are presented by St. Gabriel Episcopal School teachers and is sponsored by the Yew Life Center.

This literacy offering is aimed towards children toddler through going-into-3rd grade but all are welcome. Parents or caregivers stay with the children throughout the hour and can work on the art project together. This weekly event is free and drop-in with no registration necessary.

After the art project we will go out onto the playground and play together. Whether you are new to the neighborhood or have lived here for years, this is a way to connect with other parents and have social and play time for your kids.

This is also a great way to familiarize future students of the preschool or Art Camp with the building and teachers so coming to camp or starting school in the fall will be easier. Please join us!
