Celebration of Snow and Ice!

Winter Program began at Woodland this week. Skiers and boarders had a blast at Cannon with their several inches of fresh snow, while those students opting for Winter Program at school had the opportunity to try out Altai skis. These skis are modeled after traditional skis used deep in the Altai mountains of Northern Asia for travel and hunting. With a partial climbing skin integrated into the base, all ability levels have been able to joyfully participate in our very own backcountry skiing at Woodland. Our sledding hill began the week covered in fluffy snow and mother nature soon transformed the hill into a sheet of ice. Kids took full advantage of the ice and slid on their knees, bottoms, and pieces of cardboard! Among all the outside play was a lot of academic skill work happening inside the school. Computers were out, white boards were full,  and snap circuits were buzzing. A school-wide activity involving the work of artist Marc Chagall was begun and will continue into next week. New books were started in Read Aloud in this new year and Zoe launched her Capstone Project. (www.gofundme.com/musicforwoodland)
