Carl Sagan said "Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere." We're heading into a future that will go nowhere if we continue to place adult-like expectations on them. Help our kids lead us into the unknown by allowing them to use their imagination!
We're a small early childhood school that believes firmly that a healthy and active body is essential for learning. Our school serves our students healthy and nutritious lunches and educate students on fitness and nutrition.
We also believe that a child's imagination should be encouraged. Walk around our school and students will show you where the Super heroes sleeps, the door to the chamber of secrets, hidden treasures, and the gate that leads to the dragons den.
Imagination. There's a word children have not heard in a long time. We're requesting community playthings outlast shed playground block set for all of the students of our school to use during recess.
These modifiable block structures will allow the students of our school to think and tread in the unknown worlds of their imagination. They will learn that mistakes are meant to be made and they can learn from them!
They will take risks, learn what works and doesn't work. They will learn how to be a kid in an environment that embraces who they are, no matter what an assessment or score says. They will learn to use their imagination and use it to their advantage.
Our online campaign has helped us reach the $2,955 mark. With over $900 collected in cash and checks from families, we are well over halfway there. We are looking to raise $6,550 for the playground and hope you'll help too!
