Lower School parents met with teachers on Wednesday and Friday this week to celebrate student progress and to collaborate about goals. This parnership is essential in support of each and every child.
The Fall Fun Day on Conference Day was filled with grave rubbings at the cemetery, ultimate frisbee contests, and even a costume parade through the administrative offices in Thomas House.
EC students began their morning on Thursday playing in the rain and K-1 students ended the day basking in the sun in short sleeves. It was fun day to be outside.
This fall 4-5 students answered such questions as, “Where does our food come from?” and “Can you find these foods in our garden?” Students mapped how different foods begin as seeds and eventually end up at our homes for dinner. They considered the benefits of eating local foods and why thoughtful consideration of food labels and products can help us make informed and healthy decisions regarding what we eat.
2-3 helped EC students collect natural artifacts during buddy time today. Next week they will reconnect to create Andy Goldsworthy inspired installations with these collections.
K-1 students shared some facts they have learned about bees during Pachanga this morning, and then the Forest Habitat sang a student-created song about bees for everyone.
K-1 further explored shapes and patterns by creating cat collages with Rikki this morning at Community Art.
