Horizons Adventures: Week 5

Greetings from Horizons!

This week the girls have been very busy. On Tuesday, all the students went to see the movie Small Foot. The girls enjoyed the movie and the delectable snacks! The girls worked in STEAM on various projects. On Thursday, the students put on a big performance for the their families and friends. Afterwards, they showed their families their classrooms and enjoyed a nice potluck dinner. The girls have done an amazing job of conquering goals set at swim and in reading. The girls have started to work on diving and ventured into the deep end in swimming. This week, the girls met their reading goal of 60,000 words before the week was over. By the end of the week, the girls exceeded reading 70,00 words. We had a visit from a police officer to read a book to the girls and teach them about safety. The students keep working hard and having fun along the way!

Horizons Adventures: Week 4

Greetings from the Horizons at Ashley Hall!

This week the students have been working on various projects and learning so much along the way. In STEAM, the students created solar ovens to cook smores. They were able to enjoy their sweet treats afterwards! The girls have been working on AR reading goals each week and they surpassed the reading goal this week of reading 50,000 words!  In music, the girls are working on preparing for a performance for their parents next Thursday for parents night. On Friday, the whole camp took a field trip to the Children's Museum. When they returned from the field trip, the girls spent some time playing in the sprinklers. The girls enjoyed another fun filled week at Horizons!
