As I write this post, I am sitting in the Day Nursery Administrative office just a few blocks away from the heart of the Super Bowl festivities. Even in our neck of the woods, the Super Bowl is surrounding us. Out the window I can see tents going up and TV trucks arriving at the Murat to set up for the NBC broadcast of the inaugural NFL Honors tomorrow night. Helicopters and jet fighters have been circling our office all week and most everyone you bump into ends their conversation with “Have a Super day!” The Super Bowl fun has extended into our 7 early learning centers too. Teachers have worked hard to incorporate football into lessons dealing with counting, sorting and colors. Many preschool classes voted for their favorite team and helped their teacher chart the results. Children are learning lessons about teamwork, sportsmanship and philanthropy.
The families and staff members in our centers have pulled together to collect food for local food pantries. We are off to a great start in 2012. Here’s a salute the Super Bowl XLVI and our great city from Day Nursery.
