Girl Scouts visit Adam Pink Salon
Girl Scouts from Troop 2292 recently visited the Adam Pink Salon to earn their “Looking Your Best” badge. Adam and Marilen Pinkwasser opened their salon for the girls and spent time discussing hair care, skin care, make-up application and choosing the right color clothes to compliment their skin tones. Adam styled their hair, Marilen taught the girls to apply make-up naturally and Ethan Pinkwasser taught them how to walk on a runway. The evening culminated with a fashion show for the parents.

Montessori Educare Academy happenings
Montessori Educare Academy parents recently gathered to promote the school’s inaugural Community Day. The group of 45 parents spent the day repainting playground equipment, bike paths and playground games. They repaired and painted the playground gazebo, planted citrus trees and readied the vegetable garden for planting.
Kelly Wolff from the Arizona Department of Game and Fish visited the school last week to give the children a presentation on native Arizona wildlife. She brought three animals for the children to see – a Great Horned Owl, a Burrowing Owl and a Prairie Dog. Each of the animals had been taken in by the Arizona Department of Game and Fish because they were injured and unable to be rehabilitated back into the wild.
Montessori Educare Academy is located at 1244 E. Chandler Blvd. and is currently enrolling students ages 12 months to six years. For information, call (480) 283-8885.
