K9 Veterans Day with Officer Daley and Vilo

K9 Veterans Day with Officer Daley and Vilo

It was a very exciting and special day here at WBC. Today is K9 Veterans Day! We invited Officer Daley and Vilo of the New London Police Department to visit our center. Officer Daley talked with our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Classrooms about Vilo and his work and they even got to see Vilo in action! We finished the visit with a very generous gift from the Pre-K and Preschool classrooms to Vilo to thank him for all that he does for the community. Thank you so much to Officer Daley and Vilo for coming to visit. What a great experience for our children and staff! Happy K9 Veterans Day Vilo – come back and visit again!

Ivory Soap Experiments with Extended Ed.

Ivory Soap Experiments with Extended Ed.

Have you ever put ivory soap in the microwave? The Extended Education Program conducted this fun science experiment yesterday. Check out the children’s reactions. We wont give away what happens, you’ll just have to try it for yourself. Here’s how: Unwrap a bar of Ivory soap. Place the bar of soap on a paper towel or microwave-safe dish. Microwave your soap for 2 minutes. Watch the soap closely to see what happens. Allow the soap to cool for a minute or two before touching it.

Our Extended Education Program came to visit the Pre-Kindergarten Classroom to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday by reading some of his books together.
