Kingfisher is a human-scale school that uses small class sizes and a family-friendly philosophy to encourage students to reach for their dreams. We ask kids to become aware of their talents and strengths and to use those strengths to bolster the areas that need work. We like kids to explore, and we extol the virtue of curiosity. Our mission is summed up in the acronym P.E.A.C.E.
April/MayWhat a great time we are having this spring--the Jupiter Class is learning about fairy tales and the Neptunes are studying plants and moving into biomes. Everything in the spring has a kind of magic to it--yesterday we learned that there is the same percentage of saltwater in the human body that is found in the ocean. We've been growing beans both for the plant unit and for the fairy tale unit and no one, including the teachers, can get over the "magic" of how quickly the brown, hard-shelled beans become real green plants with stems and leaves and roots. It's a miracle. The first Sunday in May we'll have our chorus recital. The kids are learning really hard songs and the sound is so beautiful. We finished a series of art classes at the Tucker Mainstreet Art School and some of the kids are preparing for a play with DramaKids in May. So much to do and so little time! This week on May 3rd will be field day over at Henderson Park--lots of hopping, skipping, running, throwing, and teamwork. Go Kingfisher Kids!
