May 3, 2016 - Egg-Citing News at St. David School!

For the past 21 days the Full Day Kindergarten students at St. David Catholic School have been doing an inquiry on chickens. Through books, drama activities, art projects, videos and songs the students have been learning about the hatching process of chicks. This week the students were very excited as they watched 14 new chicks hatch from their eggs in their classroom incubator!

"At St. David School, we strive to provide our students with authentic, hands on learning opportunities. This is an inquiry the entire school gets involved in and looks forward to every year" said Lindsay Michel, FDK teacher. "It builds community through learning, fun and hands-on real life experiences".

"I learned that when the chicks come out of the incubator they are wet and when they dry off they go in the brooder. I like that my mommy can come to my school and see what we are learning" stated Emma Carlucci, St. David FDK student.

Parents and families that live in the Donovan, Flour Mill and Louis Street areas are reminded that St. David School is hosting it's "Welcome to Kindergarten" morning on Tuesday May 10 at 11 am. All newly registered kindergarten students and their families are encouraged to attend.
