On November 18th, sixth graders will be continuing their investigation of how to build resilient communities, with a particular focus on water. We deeply believe, now more than ever, that it is crucial we be teaching our young people what it means to be a community.
- How do we ensure we have our basic physical needs met?
- What skills do we need to do so?
- What does this mean for our relationship with the natural world?
- How do we create the feeling of community?
- What are our responsibilities to ourselves and one another?
These are questions we are exploring and we are humbled and inspired by the depth of your young ones’ thoughts. Please continue these conversations at home and feel free to share any dialogues, ideas or questions with us back at school.
We are going to Watershed Management Group to learn about their water harvesting and permaculture techniques. We will be leaving school at about 9:40 and returning at around 12:45. Students will need to bring a lunch, water bottle, snacks and clothing they will be comfortable in outdoors. We are in need of drivers. If you are able to assist with driving, please email Ariane (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the school (624-7552).
