Dear Gan Families,

We’re really excited about the new Gan Shalom year and we can’t wait to have your children with us at our beloved preschool!

This year, we’re increasing our focus on art at Gan Shalom.

Art is an important means through which children can explore the world, learn about mathematics, science, literacy through play, and most importantly, it is a meaninfgul access point to spirituality for children.

In preparation for this new year, we hope to introduce new materials in the classrooms as well as create our very own Atelier – a designated art room. Here are several items on our wish list:

  • 12 Chairs for the Atelier ($1,200.00)
  • Art Unit/Open Shelves ($420.00)
  • 2 Wooden Easels for Painting ($300.00)
  • Curtains ($250.00)
  • Projector ($150.00)
  • Large Art Table ($100.00)
  • Small donations of $18.00 for arts supplies

Please do forward to grandparents, family members, and friends who might want to participate in honor of your child’s new year at Gan Shalom and in support of our cutting edge work at the preschool.Thank you for your contributions and for helping us keep Gan Shalom an innovative educational community!

Best wishes,
