Music, Motion, & Math - Making Pizza

Making Pizza is part of Music, Motion, & Math, which introduces basic math concepts such as patterns, measurement, shapes, and numbers to your child. Your child’s creativity will be nurtured and math concepts will be reinforced through music, games, hands-on and art activities as they experiment with shapes, rhythms, size, and a variety of art mediums. Music, Motion & Math is a great way to prepare your child for Preschool and Kindergarten and gives her/him the opportunity to practice her/his social skills.

Waste-free School Lunches

Did you know that every school lunch creates an average of 67 pounds of trash per school year? That equates to over 40,000 pounds of lunch annually for the average-sized middle school. With that waste comes increased pollution and the loss of valuable natural resources such as coal, oil, natural gas and trees. As parents we hope to leave behind a healthy planet for our children. One of the ways to do that is by educating children and working together towards a waste-free lunch.
