What are UU Reading?
This is the name of a new group for RE readers who will be meeting weekly during the Lifespan Learning Hour in Room D. We saw that the middle school class loved talking about the books they were reading and offered them a place and time to share. The group will decide the format and books that will be discussed. Laurie Parmele will facilitate this group to get it started, however we are looking for volunteers who love reading to join our young readers for a rousing discussion.
Child Care has been expanded during Lifespan Learning Hour (11:30-12:30). Toddler care is available in room 4 and Child Care for children up to grade 5 is available in room C. Child Care is provided so parents can participate in Lifespan Learning Hour activities. The Child Care givers now have nametags for easy identification.
Speaking of nametags, the youth group (YRUU) now has nametags too. It will be much easier to meet and get to know the members of this growing, dynamic group.
Thanks to the Diaz and Hasan families for hosting the February Family Time. About 50 people attended and had a great time together. The March Fellowship Supper was hosted by the Program Council, and the Caring Committee will host on April 16. We are looking for committees, groups or families to host the May and June suppers. The host group will provide the main course, those attending are asked to provide a side or dessert if possible. Everyone is welcome at the Fellowship Suppers; we hope to see you!
Summer Curriculum: Lessons from Dr Seuss
The RE Committee has selected “Lessons from Dr. Seuss” for the summer curriculum. Each week will feature a different book written by Dr. Seuss with lessons and activities to accompany the story. Due to lower summer attendance, there will be one class which includes all children (Pre-K though middle school). Please consider volunteering to teach or assist one week this summer. A sign up sheet is posted on the RE bulletin board in the new RE wing. Check out the website: http://www.hzmre.com/seuss/ to view books and lesson plans. Contact Milena or Laurie with any questions or to volunteer.
