School News: this week's bulletin
ECO this week
First and second grade ECO focus this week was on reptiles; we hoped to see more snakes. However the weather did not cooperate and those cold-blooded snakes stayed underground. We shifted gears and explored the stream, used tools to carve sticks, and worked on our fort building.

Description of the classes:
The session will be an online 8 week class with 2 sets of digital At Home Materials to go along with the two different themes.
In this 8 week class, there are two 4 week themes. In the first mini-class, we will be exploring the garden, singing about, moving, and playing instruments in our virtual garden, read a story about a chipmunk and a mouse who encounter a CAT and how they deal with the loss of a strawberry.
The second 4 week theme is all about getting ready to ride our bikes and have a summer picnic! Getting ready is an adventure in preparing ourselves for the outdoors. As we read about our day, we will sing, move and make musical sounds with our voices and instruments to accompany ourselves as we prepare for the day! And finally, we are ready to go!!!
The cost is $96 (Tuition: $72 plus digital Home Materials: $24 ($22.64 + $1.36)
