A Snug White Quilt

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's...snow?! Yes indeed, it's still October and we've experienced our first snowfall of the season. The school grounds are covered in a beautiful blanket of fresh, powdery, perfect snowball-packing snow...and more is falling.

We are grateful for the shelter of our classroom spaces when needed, but also for our amazing CNS parents for sending their children to school prepared to PLAY in the elements.

This first snow of the year brought smiles, snow angels, and rosy cheeks to boot.

CNS children try out their tree stump gathering area. A bit colder than usual, but functional nonetheless!

New perspectives and natural elements invite exploration and risk-taking. Children climb, hop, jump, dive, roll, balance, and frolic to stay warm.

Test driving the jiggly bus! Still as jiggly as ever, even in the snow.

What a delightful, unexpected gift from nature. Our CNS outdoor program continues to surprise and inspire us every day.

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and the fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, 'go to sleep, darlings, 'til the summer comes again."

[Lewis Carroll]
