Good afternoon on this sunny day!
I would first like to thank Miss Liz and her dad, Dennis, for hosting us at their farm yesterday. It was a delightful visit and the kids completely enjoyed being able to pick and eat the veggies right where they grew! I'm sure the sensorial experience overshadowed all explanations, but that in itself is priceless and valuable learning for all. I know the older kids retained some good knowledge because they wrote about it in their journals in the afternoon. I hope you all go there to try their delicious, truly organic produce that is VERY reasonably priced! As soon as I get a quiet moment I will post the trip on our Facebook page, which, by the way is where we post all of our pictures of goings on in our school. So if you haven't gone to our Facebook page yet, go see what fun things we do here at FOG!
Also, the fall is speeding by so fast I forgot to mention to my Elementary/Middle parents that all next week is Archaeology Week! We are closed on Monday, but every day after that (with the exception of Thursday morning when we go apple picking), the kids will be getting real dirty! Send them in clothes they can get dirty in, with STURDY shoes. NO sandals, crocs, flip flops, rubber boots, etc. Just good sneakers or hiking/work boots. Our resident archaeologist, Geof Purcell, will be our guide through the week as we "dig" in Ancient India.
Don't forget - NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY!
Thanks, -Miss Deb
