Home-Based FACE

We are happy the weather is starting to get warmer! We are encouraging all our families to get outside and go for walk to get some fresh air! We have been providing our families with resources to help with stress from COVID, and we have been supporting our families with their own family well-being. Our families had the opportunity to go on a Virtual Family Circle to the Cincinnati Zoo! Families got to live stream the video cameras on the zoo animals. Some favorites that the parents reported was the tigers, penguins, Gladys the gorilla and the birth of a baby hippo! Did you know sloths can be pregnant for ten months?! Our March family circle we are planning sensory activities. For April and May Family Circles, we are hoping that we will be able to bring our families on campus to gather together for food and fun activities! We will still be following our COVID procedures that the school has in place. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! Courtney and Jessica

FACE Adult Education

Adults have been busy researching native plants. They have been working on a large project, where they are researching native plants used for their medical uses. They are also looking at what tribes uses which plants and where they are located at. They are now finding the Dakotah word for these plants to add to our vocabulary. Adults are also painting some of the images from children's books that are being presented in the preschool. I hope this newsletter finds all of you in good health during these trying COVID times. Wishing you well, Kari


FACE has been getting their busy.....on! We've been through the Domains-Plants, Habitats, and our next one is Classic Tales. We are looking forward to the 3 bears, the big bad wolf and Thumbelina. Our centers have changed also. We had the construction station, the robot building center and music center. Now we have a beauty salon, a grocery store and a Dr.'s office. Our FACE attendance has been 100% and we have learned so much. It is so good to be back on-site. We missed our friends! NitaRae & Wanda
