NORTHPOINT SCHOOL VISITS CHURCH FARM

This past week I came to the church campus to find two groups of students from Northpoint School learning some hands on education at the church farm.

After they had gone back to class I walked around to see all the work they had accomplished.  Great job guys and thank you.

I also learned that Prescott is one of only twelve communities in the United States to receive a major grant from Expeditionary Learning Schools Outward Bound (with funds provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) to create a new, small, rigorous high school based on the highly acclaimed Expeditionary Learning model.

Here are a few photos of the students with Thomas the teacher.

Twila the goat will be having her kid in August. Really looking forward to all the excitment.

To have a church part of a school’s field trip is a real delight. I wish we had more things to offer the community. Perhaps in the future we could offer other real life opportunities for people to come and participate and learn.
