AIG Students Visit Barrier Island

The New Salem Elementary 5th grade AIG students recently took a three day field trip to Barrier Island Environmental Education Center on Seabrook Island, about 25 miles south of Charleston, SC. The campus includes nearly one mile of beach, 100 acres of salt marsh, 200 acres of undisturbed maritime forest, freshwater ponds, and a freshwater swamp. The trip gave the students a unique opportunity to learn about and experience nature in a way that is hands-on, memorable and a whole lot of fun.
While on the Barrier Island field trip, students had lessons in biology, ecology, conservation, astronomy, botany and more while studying the unique environment of a barrier island's salt marsh ecology. All of the experiential classes were activity oriented and based on a child’s natural curiosity about the environment. Here are a few pictures to view of the activities the children participated in while at Seabrook Island.

***CURRICULUM NIGHT*** SEPT 11TH - 6:00 PM-7:30 PM

September 8, 2014
 

Dear Parents,
 

We invite you to learn more about the curriculum for your child on Thursday, September 11th, starting at 6:00 O’clock. We will begin with a general session for all in the auditorium. It will be followed by breakout sessions for your student’s classroom or grade level. There will be two identical presentations offered so that you may attend each child’s presentation if you have more than one child. For example, if you have a child in first and third, you might attend the presentation for the first grade child in the first session from 6:25 – 6:55, then attend the presentation for the third grade child from 7:00 – 7:25. If you don’t have more than one child, or if both parents attend and want to “divide and conquer”, I hope you will take advantage of the additional sessions we will be offering on “Supporting Literacy at Home,” “Internet Safety,” Or “The New Math?” These additional sessions are offered by support staff and I hope you will take advantage of them. These sessions are designed for you as a parent. You will get more out of the experience if you have the ability to leave your children at home. Parking will be limited, but Euto Church has allowed us to use their parking lot. Please use caution as you cross busy 218.
