Let's Go Fly a Kite!

And learn a little math and science while we're at it!!

Join PA Virtual teachers for a lesson on kites... then build your own and make it fly!!!

When you think of March, do kites come to mind? What better way to enjoy this windy month than to come together, learn some math and science related to kites, choose a design, then build your own! Then we'll go outside and watch them fly!

Parents are welcome to help (especially the younger students), watch, or enjoy the beautiful grounds of the Welkinweir property (location of Green Valleys Association).
