Second & Third Week of Fall 2017
Those of you who have been following the school know that theme units are an integral part of all our classes from the PrePrimary to the Grammar class. The first major unit in our fall term has been a study of PETS. The PrePrimary has a great picture book about a pet goldfish whose “stuff” overflowed his bowl. The Primary and Elementary classes read about choosing a pet and considered the costs associated with that. The Grammar school focuses on the pet industry and the impact that has for good and bad in our communities. Amidst all of this, the faculty and staff decided that it would be a good idea to get a school pet. They defaulted to fish and our new friend, Orange Juice, is the result. The aquarium was set up on Friday and Orange Juice entered his (or her) new home on Monday. Students are now researching a pet of their choice. Their big expo on pets is on this upcoming Friday afternoon. Can't wait to see what they come up with!
