Dear LE Families,
We would like to thank all of you for inspiring us to transition into proper lunches sooner rather than later. Eating lunch in a Quest classroom has always been a breathtaking experience, and even more so now! We would like to offer a special note of thanks to Claire Hall and Jill O’Neil for donating plates and utensils to our classroom! Everything looks lovely, as you can see

The Toddlers through Middle School learned about Día de los Muertos with food, friends and fun!
I read Life Doesn’t Frighten Me by Maya Angelou this winter with both the Kindergarteners and LE. The poem was illustrated with paintings by Jean-Michel Basquiat. We talked about Basquiat’s style and used oil pastel, chalk pastel, and bold paint to create scary and not-so-scary creatures. You can listen to Angelou read the poem here.
Here’s some documentation of a LE winter project. We read “The Big Orange Splot” by Daniel Pinkwater – a story about expressing individuality and a diverse community – and made dream houses inspired by the story.
