As the Owls round the bend and begin their journey to the end of the year, they show up each day ready to discover something new and show what it means to be an Owl. During the final months of the school year, at Red Fox we celebrate every day whether it’s big or small. We celebrate remembering to calmly walk in the classroom and we celebrate writing big math equations. We’ve learned what it means to be flexible when our routine changes and use our imagination to drive our creativity. Students are particularly proud during this time of year because of our Spring Play. This was the first year that students wrote their own original play. They were so proud of all the work they put into this project and it showed on the evening of their performance. It was truly a community project where each student played a part in the creation. Owls had the opportunity to do woodworking with Rachel Batz and made a community box! Everyone had a hand in the process and learned how to repurpose palettes, use a hand saw, and stain wood.
Owls were also lucky enough to have a generous donation of all the Red Clover books made to our school library. During April we carefully read each book, discovered its message and, in the end, voted on our favorite book. We’re wondering what Red Clover Book will win this year?
A common goal among the Owls this year was to grow in ways that make their bodies feel strong and fast when running with friends. Owls learned how to navigate the woods carefully, avoiding slippery rocks and dodging sticks on the path. Owls also learned about the different varieties of vegetables that are not only important for our soil health, but for our bodies too; we even tried a variety of raw vegetables and discovered uncooked potatoes are not so delicious. Owls used their strong bodies to complete a hike to the White Rocks Ice Beds and we all agreed that the views were astounding! As we close out this year, Owls are eager for summer adventures and to see what Red Fox will bring in the coming school year.
