Tuesday at 3:30 marked the beginning the fourth of seven graduations for the Leap and Bound Redondo Beach location. Ms. Djoni’s class stunned both parents and teachers with their amazing song and dance routine.
As with every graduation ceremony at LBA the class, with a little help from the teacher, sings and dances to a collection of songs based around our company wide theme, this years’s theme being animals.
Ms. Djoni’s class started their performance with a dance to the children’s song We Are the Dinosaurs. Then they followed up this performance by dancing to Walking in the Desert, a good saying the title is very accurate with how we are all feeling here due to Los Angeles’s current excruciating heat wave. Next came their own version of dFive Little Monkeys, and if you look closely at our Leap and Bound Jungle you can see all five of those pesky monkeys and see the super sneaky alligator that snapped them all up. To finish up, Ms. Djoni’s graduates finished up their ceremony by singing and dancing to the classic nursery rhyme Five Little Speckled Frogs, and if you continue to look closely at our jungle set, you can see the cousin of the speckled frogs, the multi colored frogs, sitting on a speckled log of their own!
To keep up with tradition, the ceremony ended with a a photoshoot with the kids so the parents can always remember this special day and make sure these memories are never forgotten for both the parents and child alike.
To finish off this memorable morning for all of the families in Ms. Djoni’s toddlers class was the class potluck! All of the families brought many different kinds of food for everyone to eat and enjoy. These potlucks are always great opportunities for both the students and the parents to socialize with the other members of Leap and Bound Academy and try some new and delicious recipes!
Congratulations to the graduates of Ms. Djoni’s class and we hope to see all of you in the summer program!
