Friends of CHERP:
Wells Fargo show- Jim Henson’s Sid the Science Kid – Live!
Geared for grades PK-3. Show is on Wednesday, March 12 at 9:30 am. Sid, an “inquisitive youngster” uses comedy to tackle questions about basic scientific principles and why things work the way they do. Join Sid, May, Gabriela, and Gerald as they discover the excitement and curiosities of the world with your students! With mysteries to explain and wonders to discover, Sid and his friends set off on an adventure, asking curious questions and finding cool answers. Teacher Susie helps her students explore—and keeps the music flowing!—in this performance with audience interaction, cooperative problem solving, and plenty of laughs! Based on the PBS Kids® television series. I have some seats still available for the show below. Seats are $8.00 each. Please contact me (Brent Thomas) at (707) 291-1281 by March 10th.
A Santa Rosa police officer, who happens to be a home schooling parent, will give us a tour of the main police station in Santa Rosa on March 13 from 12 to 1 pm.
This tour will be FREE but families will need to RSVP me by March 10. They can contact me at (707) 291-1281.
Regards, Brent Thomas

If you, a friend, or a student’s family is looking for religious study with a Montessori approach, they might be interested in Catechesis of The Good Shepherd.
Our 3.5 year old daughter Caroline has been attending Atrium I (3-6 year olds) at Grace Episcopal Church in St. Helena on Sundays since September. I was looking for a Sunday School program for her because our parish doesn’t offer anything for her age group, and stumbled upon Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program. It was a bonus to learn it’s rooted in Montessori, which has been benefited Caroline. I’m simply amazed at what she learns each week and watching her grow.
Grace Church is hosting a Level 1 Formation Certification Course if anyone is interested in taking the course; childcare during the course will be available. The flyer is attached. Or you can contact Jennifer Bell directly at:
Children’s Ministry Director
Grace Episcopal Church
1314 Spring Street
St. Helena CA 94574
If you know of any families who have a child that would like to participate in an established Atrium program, the closest Atriums I’m aware of is Grace (3-6, 6-9, and 6-12 age groups) and St. Dominic’s Catholic Church in San Francisco (3-6 age group only).

This is Alice Bailey. I would like to see if any of the group is interested in doing the Dutch Mill Bulbs fundraiser for Spring bulbs. I will order how ever many brochures we need for each family and will be the coordinator. There is now the option of on-line orders so out-of-town family and friends can be included.
Call Alice 528-1124 or email me at email@example.com if you are interested in participating. Bulbs start shipping March 15 and may be planted right away with full instructions included.
