Kate was excited and honored to have her creation appear in the Kids' Reading Room section of this major newspaper. “I’ve been taking art lessons this summer, and my teacher submitted my acrylic painting of the giraffe. The Times notified us that it would be printed in the Sunday edition.”
Is there more art in Kate’s future? “Yes, I’m very happy about my painting being published and am thinking that maybe I can do it again. I’m going to be taking more art classes and am starting to think about being an art major.”
Congratulations to Kate for mirroring so much of what we encourage at Peninsula Heritage – pursuing our interests and developing our talents!

Leap Into the New School Year!

Friday, August 10th, 2012

This is an opportunity that only happens once a year and the time has come! If you child struggles with holding a pencil or writing in any way, our wonderful “Handwriting Without Tears” program begins this Monday, August 13 at 9:00 here on campus.Handwriting “Handwriting Without Tears” will be held each morning for one week, from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. This is not just a pencil and paper program, but involves moving, counting, laughing, singing, and learning to love to write. The program is exactly what its title conveys. In addition, this is a continuous curriculum throughout our grades, which makes this a valuable tool for Kindergarten, First, and Second Graders. We do hope you’ll join us.
At this writing, we will also be offering “Leaps” in Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third Grades during the week of August 20 – 24, 9:00 am to noon. This is an opportunity for your child or children to freshen their skills and get to know their new teacher for the coming school year. What a wonderful gift to have going into the first day of school! “Leaps” helps to dust out those summer cobwebs and to review language arts and mathematics. The teachers plan programs that are fun yet extremely worthwhile in reviewing skills needed for the upcoming grades.
Hope you continue to enjoy your summer and look forward to seeing you and your children at the star of school. Warmly, Patricia
