Every year in April, our primary grade students (grades PK-2) celebrate Week of the Young Child (WOYC). Annually, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (naeyc) celebrates WOYC to recognize that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children's success in school and later life. It's a time to plan how we will better meet the needs of all young children and their families. At Mackenzie Elementary we celebrated with Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday (where we partnered up with our grade 3-6 students for a STEM project), Artsy Thursday and Family Fun Friday.

ECS graduate, Emily Campanella (Class of 2011), is a therapist who had a long-held dream of writing a children's book. She saw that dream come to life when she self-published "Kindness is for Everyone: The Heartwarming Tales of Em & Dev". We were excited to welcome her to Mackenzie Elementary School today to share her book and message of kindness with our students. For those grade levels that didn't get to see Ms. Campanella today she will be back again next Monday!

SueAnn Boyd from Creating Healthy Schools and Communities and Bee Moser from SNAP-ED came to visit Mackenzie Elementary on Tuesday, March 19. They engaged our 2nd & 3rd grade students with fun activities and presented a lesson on the importance of eating more fruits and vegetables. Each child was able to plant seeds and the pots either went home with them or they will watch them sprout from their classrooms.
