It was a good first day back to school for all the kids after the summer vacation. While we had 3 cases of incoming tears, none lasted much and by the end of the day, we were all settled back into the schedule. It was lovely to see the smiling faces of the remaining 9 who were excited to be back. By the time the week is over, the vacation will be a distant sweet memory :) Please do review the calendar for all the upcoming 3-day weekends between now and winter break.
A warm welcome to Anushka and her family to Avid Kids Circle! Our new summer student was among the happy 9 and it was great to see her get comfortable quickly. By afternoon, the familiarity developed among the Avid kids and Anushka which was heartening.
Raisa is continuing her half days for this week. We wish the Nayyar family well in finding their Boston residence in time for school start. Meanwhile, we get to enjoy a little extra time with Raisa. The goodbye party and Raisa’s graduation is set for Friday, June 12@5:00 PM. The tentative plan is to convene in the Gazebo Par next to the school. My apologies for rescheduling the event and we hope all can join in.
See you all tomorrow.
