Fourth and Fifth Grade Journey
We are eagerly sorting out the logistics for our winter journey investigating our learning community. Do you have a special skill or talent you would like to share with the upper elementary students? We are especially interested in learning about the cultural heritage of our families. Activities could include cooking a traditional family meal, sharing family rituals/ traditions, doing a craft inspired by your family’s heritage, touring a place of business, sharing family photos, etc. We are thrilled to work with parents to create engaging learning experiences that will help our students understand more about the families who make up the upper elementary community. There are two opportunities to share:
Wednesday, February 11, 9:00-12:00
Thursday, February 12, 9:30-11:30


We are especially interested in learning more about the cultural heritage of upper elementary families. More specifically, we would like to help students realize the diverse pathways families have taken to end up in Jackson Hole. Did your family recently move to the valley? Has your family lived in town for many years? Does your family run a business that would be of interest to upper elementary students? Does your family participate in community activities or do community service? Does your family have relatives living overseas? Does your family have traditions that reflect your cultural heritage? Please contact Kjera (kjera.henrie@journeysschool.org) if you would like to help us!
