I love taking this time to reflect upon the wonders of the New Year. Watching your children flourish with the guidance of the fantastic teachers at Auburn Village School is a true blessing. While visiting classrooms, I witness children who are engaged and excited about their learning. I am very proud of the children and teachers at Auburn Village School and I look forward to more great things in 2019.
We are excited to be participating in our fourth annual Martin Luther King Day. We are excited to be organizing four separate service projects that students will be involved in for this special day. They include having tea and dessert and playing games with some residents from a nursing home, making care blankets for ill children at a local hospital, making placemats for our local meals on wheels, or cutting shoes for children in Uganda who sometimes get infections from contracting jiggers. The theme of the day is “Understanding others’ perspectives permits us to reduce our unconscious biases”. We will also be inviting Becky Field to speak to the middle school students. Ms. Field has documented the lives of NH’s immigrants and refugees — weddings, funerals, workplaces, children at play, sacred ceremonies, and joyful celebrations. Through Becky’s photographs and stories by NH’s refugees, this book tells of the journeys and celebrates the beauty and resilience of NH’s new American families.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any needs at all. We are here for you and welcome calls and visits from our AVS families. Enjoy our January 2019 newsletter here!
