Kingfisher Academy, a Human Scale Education School, serves the Central DeKalb/West Gwinnett area by providing a place-based, project-oriented curriculum, targeting gifted students from 3 to 14. We believe in teaching Peace and justice; in using an Environmental lens to view all subject matter; that a child must develop an authentic, autonomous self to be a gifted learner; that our Community both inside and outside the school provides a rich learning environment; and that Kingfisher must be Educationally vigorous to allow for the depth of learning that bright kids require to do their best.
THANKSGIVING AT KINGFISHER
Every year we have a potluck feast luncheon the Friday before Thanksgiving.
Each family sends a potluck food item and we all share this at lunchtime. Families come (sisters and brothers too!) and each class has special poem or story or song to do to make the feast special. Then, we all eat together (all over the school!).
We will begin the program on November 21st at 11:30 a.m. and eat right after so parents can fit it into the working day.
This is a chance to socialize, get to see the kids in action, and chat with teachers in a less formal setting.
