WE ARE INTERESTED IN PROVIDING A SEPARATE DAY FOR OLDER STUDENTS, 4TH AND 5TH GRADE, FRIDAYS JANUARY 12TH - MARCH 16TH, 3:00 - 4:45. IF THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE INTERESTED IN, PLEASE REGISTER FOR FRIDAYS BELOW AND WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN WE HAVE ENOUGH REGISTRATIONS TO MOVE THIS SECOND DAY ALONG.
This winter join the Green Schoolhouse as we embark on a homesteading journey around the world. We will explore traditions from around the world in preserving food, cooking, arts, and crafts. Students will make a passport that they will fill up throughout the term as we journey from Japan to learn about the country’s unique ecology and learn to make sushi all the way to Mexico where we will be inspired by local folk art, with plenty of spots in between. This program will take place mostly inside, though we will still be visiting the outdoors to play games, investigate, and experiment.
The Rieke homesteading club will meet every Thursday from 3:00-4:45 PM January 11th to March 22nd. Anytime school is closed, we will not meet. Due to the small nature of our program we are unable to offer refunds but will do everything in our power to find someone to take your place should you need to cancel.
There will be 11 sessions and total $250.00. This cost covers all craft, art, and food supplies.**You may notice an increase in our costs; PPS has recently increased the price of their CUB permits and so to continue to use school buildings and pay our educators a sustainable wage we must reflect that in the cost. Of course our goal is create an inclusive space and we recognize that all home economics are unique. Please be in touch to hear about our scholarship availability.
