Thanks for Making the Annual Parent Fair a Success

The annual Parent Fair was held August 16, 2018 from 1:30-6:00 pm and served as way to inform and to provide parents of enrolled students with all of the “start-up” details for the upcoming school year. It also provided an opportunity for parents and the community to explore the full range of Learning Center offerings.

Innovation Tech Camp Brings High-Tech Education to Campus

During the week of June 11-14, we were thrilled to host another fabulous summer camp brought to us by Steve and Debby Kurti of Innovation Academy. Students from TLC and other area schools got to dig deep into the impressive array of 3D printers, robotics, and drone technology that the camp featured. We are also thankful to Bob Merrill of BC Machining LLC in Brasstown. He lent his time as featured speaker to talk to camp participants and share the innovations he has developed over 35 years in business. Thanks to all who bring such amazing content to our Community of Learners.

Community Partnerships — Dr. Mitchell Visited Kindergarten

Working with our community partners and larger “Community of Learners” is important at our school. Tapping into the expanded knowledge that folks in our community can offer our students enables our teachers to expand their classrooms beyond four walls.

A perfect example of this is when last Spring, Dr. Mitchell visited the kindergarten class and discussed how he is a community helper by being a doctor. He talked to the students about what he does and even gave each student a pair of gloves and mask. Students got to listen to his heartbeat and ask loads of questions.

Thank you Dr. Mitchell for being a fantastic community partner!

1st Grade Gnomes

Before school let out for summer break, first graders learned about using natural resources to make toys. They upcycled cloth and yarn and combined it with sticks gathered in The Outdoor Learning Center (TOLC.) Students sawed and carved the sticks to make gnomes. They learned about diversity by being exposed to the different mythical creatures of the wood- fairies gnomes and trolls. The students had a wonderful time and were assisted by Ms. Katie and parent visitor Ms Tina
