Incoming St. Gabriel Episcopal School students in both classes but particularly our 3-4 preschool class are encouraged to attend our Wonder Wednesday Storytime and Art Project literacy events in August 2018.
Wonder Wednesday is a free and drop-in gathering at the school summer Wednesdays from 10:45- 11:45 am at 17435 NW West Union Rd. Portland, Or 97229. It is open to all parents and caregivers and their young children, and although it is aimed towards preschool through 3rd grade all are welcome. SGES teachers read 2-3 picture books out loud then parents and children do a connected art project together. After that we all go play outside on our playground.
Wonder Wednesday is an opportunity for new students to become familiar and comfortable with the building and playground, get to know the teachers, and meet other SGES students. A mix of SGES students, children from the Bethany community and church families attend. We have found that it makes the first day of school much easier for families and teachers and eases separation in the early days of school attendance. For students who attended SGES last year Wonder Wednesday can refamiliarize them with attending school. Plus- it’s fun!
Wonder Wednesday will be held August 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd.
