This summer has been exceptionally busy as we reorganize our spaces into the Primary and Intermediate Hubs. It has been chaotic but wonderful in that the spaces will foster teacher and student collaboration among our grades. Some changes happening now:
The Green Mountain Room is now a beautiful fresh blue! Stay tuned for a mural of the green mountains…
All gardens–old and new- are doing beautifully! The pollinator path is attracting all kinds of pollinators, the vegetables are doing well. Students will have some lovely surprises when school starts for them on August 29.
We hope to have a basic kitchen done by the time school starts, so that the students and teachers can make some lovely salads or other recipes.
Thanks to Heather Little, Eileen Vaughn and Regi Carr for moving our STEAM and Makerspaces forward! We have some exciting new materials and learning opportunities planned for the kids.
Thanks also to Heather Little for her efforts in getting our “receiving kitchen” up and running. Even if we don’t get it all finished by the start of the school year, at the very least we will have a space for our exciting Place-based and science activities to take place!
BarnArts is currently working hard on their SPAMALOT (student edition) Monty Python production. Come and see it on August 3-5th at the Town Hall. It’s been great to have them here, the place is more alive when kids are here.
We all look forward to seeing you. Open house is September 12, but we hope to see you before that!
