Last week was filled with learning a few different routines, as well as making new friends. For many of the toddlers, the classroom was a completely new environment, but they quickly jumped in. The children engaged in exploration, old friends got reacquainted, they practiced Grace and Courtesy during snack time and a lot of self-care. They are such independent little human beings.
They spent their time building, chopping fruits and vegetables, helping one another, listening to music, climbing the playground structure, setting and busing tables. We are often amazed at what our toddlers can do, but they are too!
We are thrilled to share an update on our new Roosevelt Campus! As we relayed to you at the Spring All-Parent meeting, we had been completing the details of our financing and working toward final design drawings and permits for the new building, in preparation for our new campus. We are pleased to share that we closed on the construction loan and purchase of the property at 6936-6950 West Roosevelt Road. Now the real work and the fun begin.
Our groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Friday, August 24th at 12:30 pm at the building site on Roosevelt Road. Our entire Alcuin community and the greater Oak Park community are invited to join us as we celebrate the incredible milestone in our school’s 56-year history. Bulley & Andrews will join us with their trucks and equipment so the children can climb in and get the construction work started. Shovels and hard hats will be on hand as we literally break ground on a new beginning. After the ceremony, parents, children, and friends are invited to Maple Park for a picnic and further celebration. Hot dogs and cake will be plentiful!
