Thank you everyone who made food for and attended last week’s open house! We had some left over pizza after the event, so we let the kids eat it while reading a poem about cold pizza during writing time the next morning.😂
Bummed you missed our last open house? Not to worry, we have four throughout the school year! Our next open house will be on Wednesday, February 12th from 6 until 7:30pm.
Coming to an open house is a great way for prospective families to see the building and meet the teachers, other families, and students. We provide pizza from Turners Falls Pizza House, and current families bring other dinner foods, snacks, drinks, or desserts! Click here to learn about other ways and times to visit Four Winds School!
This week in science class students studied and made food webs, and in humanities we continued our conversation about standard of living in workers rights. Students also completed Creative Writing 2 and should be about 2/3 way through Lyddie by Katherine Patterson. Next biweekly they will start Research Paper 2, which can be about any topic we’ve studied in our afternoon classes over the last month.
If you haven’t yet purchased a 2020 calendar with photography by local photographer Rachel Roy and haikus by Four Winds Students, send us an email or check out Rachel’s page on Facebook! We’ve already sold about half of our stock, so if you are planning to give them as holiday presents you may want to purchase them sooner rather than later!
