October 2021

Happy Autumn, Hibberd Families!

Students and staff are settling into the 2021-2022 school year and getting down to the business of learning, growing, and finding success in both academics and social/emotional wellness.

In Applied Skills, students have been hard at work exploring the life cycle of butterflies and enhancing their culinary skills. They have been out shopping for ingredients, made brownies and other yummy recipes, and worked on table manners. Both classes volunteered at the Mary Scott Community Orchard and helped stake growing trees. They met the facilitator to learn how trees grow and the care they need to survive the elements.

Early College students have a number of field trips and college and career readiness activities planned for October. They are looking for opportunities for service learning projects. If you have a business or organization that could partner with our students, please let use know!

Skills groups will begin to meet this month for Early College students who need extra support with academics.

LOGOS 3rd and 4th graders have been busy planning their projects the past few weeks. They are also working on narratives in writing, and they will conclude the unit by dressing up as a character from their narratives on Friday, October 29th.

LOGOS students in grades 5-8 will begin presentations the first full week of October. At this time, we are limiting visitors to only community partners and service provides (Centerstone, JACY House, etc.) and will not allow families to be present for project presentations. This may change in the future, but we are playing it safe right now!
