The annual Parent Fair was held August 17, 2017 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.

As educators, we know that learning by doing is the best teacher. The total solar eclipse that happened on August 21, 2017 gave us the incredible, rare opportunity to bring our Community of Learners together to witness the awesome effects of planetary motion! How could we pass that up?

SolarFest brought us together to witness the total solar eclipse and to learn new things in the process. Our educational booths taught us about the science behind an eclipse, pinhole cameras, and 3D printing. It even allowed the perfect selfie opportunity! Food, crafts and water games added to the festivities. It was an awesome day!

Annual 6th-8th Grade Fall Camping Trip Scheduled

While students can learn many things on our campus, we know the world waiting outside offers even more opportunity for rich, engaging, educational experience. Each Fall, students in 6th through 8th grades have the opportunity to go camping as a group. They enjoy the outdoors, learn a little bit about nature, cook on a campfire and share experiences and stories with their classmates in a new setting. This year’s trip promises to be a great one! Make sure your student is signed up before September 15th!

CAMPING Fall 2017

 

They should have come home with the above form. If not, you can print this one or pick one up in the front office. Your student won’t want to miss it!
