Creative Thinking

These days you can go to the store and buy almost anything you want.  You don’t need to think about how you are going to fix that toaster, sharpen that pencil and heat up that dinner; just buy a new one, use a pencil sharpener and throw that dinner in the microwave. “Creative Thinking”,...

The students will be participating in a modified Ironman Triathlon on Thursday.  The student body works together to run 26 miles.  Last year they made it with the help of preschoolers, kindergartners, elementary students and the middle school students.

Great CAP Kids Fair

June 5, 2010

Deanna Norris from Child Abuse Prevention sent out a request for exhibitors to set up in conjunction to the Pinckney Art in the Park.  It was the first time it was participating in the art fair and I decided it would  be a good match for reaching more parents and children in the area...

A Tune for the 13 Colonies??

June 2, 2010

Does anyone have a tune to learn the 13 colonies by?  I’m not particularly musical but I’m going to try to come up with something to help the students remember the original colonies. Tweet
