Brrrr...... it's cold out there. Tired of the unusually frigid temperatures? Come in out of the cold, reconnect with the school community and join us Thursday evening, January 30, for our final Pot Luck of the year.
No pressure, but your children boast about the wonderful meals served every night in their homes!
Thursday, January 30: Pinewoods Potluck and Discussion Group
Friday, January 31: Pinewoods Pajama Day. Students should roll out of bed and come to school in their jammies. We are planning a fun day meant to reenergize, refocus, and recognize/celebrate the days when we work hard. Students may bring one small pillow and one small stuffed animal.
While continuing to work on individualized work plans, we managed to find time to welcome visitors into the classroom.
Emma Gunter's grandparents , both geologists, arrived in our classroom with boxes of fossils, stories about treasured rocks, and their many adventures traveling the world.
David Toennisson's grandmother, Miss Terry, came later and brought her expertise as a Montessori teacher/trainer. We had a wonderful time together and she enjoyed meeting all of our students.
Finally, the National Children's Theater came and delighted the students with a performance about the importance of conserving resources.
If you would like to come in and share a particular interest with the class, please let us know. We love to welcome visitors.
As a parent of a 21 year-old, I appreciate the importance of children having some practical life skills. (For example, knowing to remove ink pens/markers from clothing before it is washed). Thus, I have recently started to add some new practical life works. All students had to demonstrate competency sewing on buttons. Ms. Summer took over teaching the students how to knit. Currently, I am looking for someone to come in and help the students with a woodworking project. Are there any experts out there?
Thank you to everyone who helped support our MLK service project. Our next field trip is February 11 to the Art Center in Carroboro. We are looking for drivers/chaperones.
