Students Develop Range of Woodworking Skills
The woodworking studio teaches lessons across a broad range of students each day. In first grade, students recently completed work on some very colorful pencil holders which they designed and created.

Weekly experiences in the woods surrounding campus are an integral component of the pre-k program. We are eager for parents to observe their children in this environment.
Children at this age often find great comfort in the woods. The towering trees have a way of creating a sense of protection that be settling for children.
