This week in Mountain Laurel Cottage…
Our community is excited to announce that we will be attending the ballet in December. We have purchased tickets to see the Act II performance of The Nutcracker at the Long Center on Tuesday, December 8th from 12:00-1:00 PM. Fig Tree will be joining us this year to see the performance as well. Due to limited seats this year, we will not be having drivers attend the ballet. You may purchase tickets through the box office for weekend availability. However, our community will need support with drivers to and from the ballet. Let us know if you are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include the number of children you can take in your vehicle. Also please note in your email if you can only drive one-way (leaving Cedars or picking-up at the Long Center). Or if you have availability to drive both-ways.
Departure from Cedars Montessori: 10:45-11:00 AM
Departure from the Long Center: 1:00-1:15 PM (pick-up along entrance loop)
We will reply to your email by Wednesday to confirm your support! ☺
This week in the kitchen we will be making whole wheat strawberry muffins and Rainbow Veggie Wraps. The children are excited to make the muffins using healthy ingredients such as honey for sweetener. The Rainbow wraps include a variety of colorful vegetables such as cucumber, cabbage, carrots, yellow squash and red pepper with a light layer of cream cheese and chives on the tortilla wrap prior to folding and rolling.
Finally, thank you for all of your contributions to our garden. The children got everything planted this past week. We have a variety of vegetables and herbs to care for throughout the year. The children added the flowering plants to our butterfly garden after laying mulch. We will continue to water and observe the plant’s cycle in creating food for harvest when ready. This week we’ll make plant markers using rocks and “I’ve been watered blocks,” to ensure measured water.
Let us know if you have any questions or concerns this week!
Warmly, Mountain Laurel Cottage
