Gloucester DPW crew members Mike Tarantino and Phil Cucuru are installing a new sign at the very beginning of the footbridge. The new sign is meant to be more visible and to help eliminate the confusion regarding when and when not dogs are permitted on the beach. The older sign near the new showers will continue to be used by the Friends of Good Harbor Beach community organization to post current and important notices.

Phil and Mike always do a top-notch job!

Thursday, October 26th, 8:45 a.m. – 9:45 a.m 

Harborlight Montessori, 243 Essex Street Beverly, MA   978-922-1008

As the only school on the North Shore currently offering language immersion in our preschool and kindergarten classrooms as well as weekly lessons in Spanish and Chinese to children from PK – Grade 8, Harborlight Montessori has created a language experience that allows our students to learn systematically and organically.  Our World Language faculty members are all native speakers, which helps to create a genuine, meaningful, and effective curriculum.

Please join us as Harborlight’s Director of World Language, Sandra Lee, shares her vast knowledge and expertise concerning the most effective way to help young children learn a foreign language.  She will share why exposure to a second language should begin at an early age, how second language acquisition is approached at Harborlight, useful online tools to promote further language acquisition at home, and discuss some common misconceptions about second language learning.

Sandra Lee is the Director of World Languages at Harborlight Montessori in Beverly, as well as a Teacher in the Children’s House Program. She has authored both articles and books on the subject of second language learning in young children.

Watch these two short videos of our young students using both Chinese and Spanish as a part of their language immersion and/or language lessons.

Serenitee Now!

On our way to the podcast Sunday, we stopped at Happy Belly for coffee.  We used our Serenitee card to build some points AND that coffee rocks!  It was a perfect way to start the day.

We ended the day celebrating my birthday at Lat 43, again using the Serenitee card rewards for a FREE entree AND dessert.  Did I mention FREE?  We started and ended the day with Serenitee……….. priceless.
