In Old Town
We held our third and last social for the school year this past Saturday. The education team at Gadsby's Tavern and the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary led us through a very informative and enjoyable program. This was just a preview of the field trips to come!
The turnout was fantastic with just three students not able to attend. We missed you! At the Apothecary and at the Tavern we learned about history, science and the way of life in the 18th century. Most importantly we worked on learning each other's names! The kids also got a chance to taste the food for next year and we got their seal of approval, so we're good to go on the food. Another item checked off - School Lunches. We closed out a lovely afternoon by playing 18th century games - Nine Pins and Blind-Man's Bluff!
I realized that while I've been writing about all of the furniture we have been purchasing, receiving and assembling, we didn't have any visuals. The first four photos where we're loading in computers are from a few weeks ago. Who said only tech companies start out in garages? STEM schools do too!
The assembly process really picked up this week with Mr. Maxime's help, who assembled 90 chairs! Chairs are done. Now onto tables, bookcases and engineering workbenches!
On the curriculum front, we purchased the Earth Science and Engineering curricula and licenses!
All doors now have glass and have been hung, the cabinets are close to being complete and exit signs have been hung. The lights are all up. Bathrooms now have toilets, sinks and partitions. And odds and ends are complete. Countertops get installed next week and the air conditioning finally gets turned on!
