Elementary P.E. Update
As we hang up our cross-country skis and return to normal P.E. class times and days, we would like to first extend an enormous THANK YOU to all the teachers, students and parents that made our winter sports program a success. There is NEW fun on the horizon and it involves the ever popular ice rink on campus. Starting next week we will begin our broomball unit. So keep those snow pants on and be ready to slide around the ice. We will be outside for most of February, so always come to P.E. class with your big 5!

Mercado Mexicano
Muchas gracias to the middle school students and Kate Schelbe for hosting two of our Spanish classes for a Mexican Market. ¡Que delicioso y divertido!

Colonial Apprenticeships
The upper elementary faculty and students send out a heartfelt thank you to the following individuals for volunteering their time and knowledge in helping us with our “colonial apprenticeships”. The students truly enjoyed the place-based experience of present day resource grounded within the development of our nation.
• Yasmina Groenstein for teaching the children the practice of clothing design and the utility and importance of design then and now
• Tony Labbe and the staff of the Bunnery for teaching us the practice of baking
• Dave Bucholz and his building crew for showing the children the craft of carpentry through home building
• Daniela Botur for working with and teaching the children the craft of flower essence and oils as a medicinal resource during the colonial time
• We also extend a warm thank you to Dan Merino of the Buffalo Meat Co., and Bill Cawley of Walton Ranch, for inviting our students into their businesses to experience life as a butcher and as a cattle rancher.
• Finally, to the teachers and parents who have worked behind the scenes making our colonial dinner come to life!
