Dear Lab Families,
Our first WOW! Global Food & Cuisine Workshop is tomorrow! You may have noticed something new on the Magic Window when you've dropped off this week. It's Ireland! We've visited Limerick and Dublin this week. All of this is in preparation for our first Global Food workshop where students explore countries and cultures through their food and cuisine. Ireland's harvest festivals were a precursor to Halloween so we selected this as our first country to visit! Tomorrow, Qiana, our garden chef, will lead the first workshop. She will talk about Ireland's harvest festival, the potato and its role in Irish cuisine and politics, and prepare potato & leek soup with our students. Afterwards, students will plant a "potato sack" and add this to our Edible Garden.
Field trip to MOLAA November 5th, 12:00. We will go on our first field trip of the Fall to the Museum of Latin American Art on November 5th at 12:00. Students will tour MOLAA's Day of the Dead art installations and participate in art workshop. Cost: $10. If you are able to help transport students please text Creana at 323-483-1569 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
EPIC families. Parents please have your child do at least 1 hour of Moby Max at home each day (younger students - 30 minutes). Your Epic teacher will be happy!
Halloween Parade and Potluck Festival. October 31st 10:00-12:00. At The Lab, we love to celebrate! This Halloween we will be holding our annual Halloween Costume Parade and potluck on October 31st from 10:00-12:00. Please join us, bring your favorite dish, and come in costume! But no candy please. Here is a link to some ideas for "non-candy" treats. https://www.womansday.com/life/a52496/non-candy-halloween-treats/ Parents, in recognition of our multi-age classrooms, also no super scary costumes (meaning lots of blood) or weapons allowed.
