The fairy delighted us with a visit for Halloween. Click here to see the fairy singing and dancing.


Pumpkin fun at Tivoli, spiders and webs, feeding Scooter, our neighborhood turtle,  painting the pumpkins orange, and our squirrel visitor sneaking a drink.


Welcome back to the new Tivoli school year. We are happy to wave hello to everyone with our buttoned hello hands.  


We celebrated Tivoli fathers at the park with special Father’s Day verses and dancing in the circle. The dads loved it. It was the first time in a long time that we could see the smiles on their faces, because the mask requirement was lifted just the day before. The children decorated special lunch bags with hand and foot prints and filled the yummy lunch bags with apples and pretzel sandwiches, made by the children.


We had a wonderful Mothers Day celebration at Tellefson Park.  


Tivoli moved to a new home in Culver City. The children helped to move the play structure. And the parents did an amazing job moving every little part of our beloved school.


A fun time was had by all at our Easter celebration. Children and parents did the bunny sack hop and the egg balancing walk. What a surprise–the Easter Bunny hid the Easter baskets with little chickees and Easter eggs in the grass under the trees.




The children also painted Easter eggs that were hung on the Tivoli Easter tree.




A good time was had by the children on Fasching. Even in the pandemic we celebrate, with dressing up, eating “Berliner”, crafting Fashing’s hats, and dancing “Rucky Zucky”. Hellau and Alaf!


We celebrated Valentine’s Day with baking yummy cookies and sharing thoughtful Valentine gifts at circle time. In the afternoon the families met in the park (with masks and social distance) and the children performed a Valentine’s verse for their family and the whole community danced a loving kindness dance. It was a spreading-the-love kind of day.


We had lots of sun in January, but Tivoli still feels like winter, thanks to our snowmen. The children had loads of fun making them out of pumpkins. They painted the bodies white and decorated them.
