On Wednesday, July 25, 2018, Primary children will visit the Princeton Art Museum. The purpose of the trip is three-fold: to expose the children to real art, to teach them art museum etiquette, and to inspire their creativity.
On this day, students will depart from school at 9:30 am and arrive back to school at 11:15 am. They will have lunch upon their return.
We will not be visiting the gift shop. Please do not send money with your child. The trip will take place rain or shine. If it is raining, the children will need raincoats; please do not bring umbrellas.
What to bring/wear:
- Wear comfortable walking shoes (no flip flops)
- Wear raincoats as needed (no umbrellas)
Please submit your permission by Monday, July 23rd.
A fall project in Eco Binding class was to build a rain barrel in our vegetable garden. The Upper Elementary children added a rain barrel and built a gutter system from the shed to help collect the water. We will use the free supply of fresh water for the maintenance of our garden. We learned that as water becomes scarce (and more expensive), it is wise to re-examine ways for water collection and reuse techniques.
