Winter Journeys
Tuesday, February 7 and Wednesday, February 8

On Tuesday, February 7 and Wednesday, February 8, the Outdoor Snow Explorers will journey to Teton Village to visit Brett Gensch (Wolfi’s dad). Brett works for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and will demonstrate how to move snow with a front end loader and how to smooth the snow with a groomer! If time permits, the children will also visit the snow castle at the base of the Mountain. We will depart Journeys School at 1:00 pm and return by 3:15 pm. If you are interested in joining us, please sign-up on the whiteboard in the mudroom. We are still looking for a parent to join us on Wednesday. We would love if volunteers could arrive at the Pre-K at around 12:45 pm to help us buckle the children into car seats.

Valentine’s Days
Monday, February 13 and Tuesday, February 14

On Monday, February 13th and Tuesday, February 14th we will celebrate Valentine’s Day and our love for all our Pre-K friends by making cards, sorting valentines that have been made at home, and enjoying a festive snack. A class list for Monday and Tuesday (depending on what day your child comes to school) can be found in your child’s folder. Making valentines for classmates is optional, but we do ask that you make one for everyone if you plan to bring them in.

Graduate Students
Every year graduate students from the Kelly Campus of Teton Science Schools join the Journeys School community for a seven-week Teaching Practicum beginning in February. The purpose of the practicum is to explore big picture questions about education in America while providing a meaningful, mentored experience in an innovative school. Graduate students will work closely with Aaron Nydam, a Kelly Campus faculty member and former Journeys teacher, and a host teacher to ensure quality instruction and a smooth transition to the culture of each classroom. Working together, the Journeys School Teaching Practicum will bring additional energy and richness to the Journeys School student experience. We are excited to welcome Bekah Taylor to the Pre-K program.
