Mrs. Clark Helps the Kindergarten “Look for the Helpers”
We all know the famous quote from Mr. Rogers. In times of trouble his mother would encourage him to “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Each year Mrs. Clark introduces her young students to the wider community to which St John School belongs, specifically the “helpers” of the Old Saybrook community. The children were delighted to visit and tour places like the Old Saybrook Police Department, The Old Saybrook Fire Department, and the Old Saybrook Post Office.
These field trips introduce the concepts of community, safety, and understanding the way the world works. For example, the children learn that the mail doesn't just magically appear in our mailbox. Students learn what community helpers do, and why it’s important.
It’s a big world, little ones! SJS is so pleased to help introduce you to it!
