School News

July was a busy month at Four Winds School! Many students attended and enjoyed the 2019 Summer Writing and Art Camp as well as the July Open House / Eloise’s Going Away Party.

Camp 2019

The 2019 Summer Writing and Art Camp was a great success! Campers wrote, created art, played, socialized, swam, and had fun!

We ended the week with a gallery showing and family potluck.

Open House / Eloise’s Party

At our July Open House we said good bye and congratulations to former teacher and director, Eloise Michael. You can read about her on our brand new “Directors” page!

August will be a quiet month here at Four Winds, consisting mainly of Hattie and Becca preparing for the 2019-2020 school year! If you have any questions for either of them, please don’t hesitate to ask! The teachers can be reached at fourwindsteachers@gmail.com.
