Now that we are a month into 2022, it is the perfect time to reflect on our personal aspirations for the year ahead and redefine our intentions with clarity and optimism.

FROM CHICKS TO CHICKENS

Students in Class Eger have been enjoying the lessons learned from incubating, hatching and rearing baby chicks. After hatching in the fall, lessons have been built on the deepening curiosity of the students regarding the nature of zoology and of humanity’s relationship to animals. The class chickens are  slowly but surely growing into their “teenage” years, just as our students will do in time!!

REQUEST FOR DONATIONS

Guitar Club:  Guitar club is off to an excellent start during this first portion of 2022! They have been meeting twice weekly, however, they are still looking for additional donations of playable instruments for students, either acoustic or classical!
