If […]

    I learned in Kindergarten

      Robert Fulghum tells us in his book, “All I really need to know I learned in Kindergarten.”  Our kindergartener students stood at graduation before their parents, grandparents, teachers and others to tell us this was true.  They proudly raised their hands as Ms. Dolan, head of school, read a list Mr. Fulghum had made to see if they too had learned things like sharing, cleaning up […]

    Two by Two

    Students created very imaginative Noah’s Arks after studying the Bible story in 1st grade. Projects are an important part of  experiential learning. As students use all of their senses to reinforce the learning, it is imprinted in their memory in a powerful way. These projects are also a lot of fun. Enjoy!
