Make natural crafts to keep, possibly including sun prints on photographic paper, terrariums, or homemade “Chia” heads. A field trip to a beaver pond by the high school gives a look at pond life, animal tracks, and a chance to catch a fish (bring a rod if you like, or borrow some from GBS librarian Mr. Burdette). We have a great success rate: almost everyone catches fish, and usually not just one! Pick and eat wild edibles like raspberries, wintergreen, and hemlock tea. Have fun learning about creatures great and small, while sharpening your observation skills. Walk from the high school to the abutting 4-acre Clyde Pond beaver Pond. Explore the newly-conserved land called (ClydePond.com). Come prepared to hike, hang out by the pond and eat s-mores, catch fish, and make nature crafts. 

(Note: students should bring a backpack & water bottle, rain jacket, & closed-toed hiking shoes/boots/sneakers, for walks).  Enjoy the great outdoors in a hidden gem close by.   All fish, creatures and water organisms will be released daily after our observations.

We will spend the week refining the critical skills (see below) that students will need in order to achieve success once school starts just a few weeks later. Each morning, we will focus on 2-3 important skills and then test each child’s understanding by having them participate in fun, hands-on, and engaging games. Together, let’s make this upcoming school year your child’s best yet! *Please note that space is limited.

 Note: We will also preview the first month of what your child will be taught in 4th grade. This will greatly help ease their transition in their new classroom.

Nearly everyone catches a fish! Clyde Pond is newly conserved 4-acre beaver pond that’s a short walk from the high school. It was recently preserved as Windham town land by voters (Clydepond.com). We’ll walk to the pond, hang out by pond eating s’mores, and  do some fishing. Join in an outdoor scavenger hunt. Have fun learning about creatures great and small, while sharpening your observation skills.  **

 All fish, creatures and water organisms will be released daily after our observations.


Note: If your child is an incoming kindergartener, please be sure they'll be comfortable going for walks, bug hunts w/ nets, & fishing outside, in addition to possible indoor activities. Also, students going into grade 3 (or just below or above) may stay for both sessions if desired, and stay through from 8:30am-2:00pm, though both sessions have some repeat activities.
