Casual Friday, House fun, Exhibition Night prep, and an archaeologist...oh, my!
There is no such thing as an average day at The Foundry!
This morning I popped in and found the students ready to put the finishing touches on their projects, which will be displayed at Exhibition Night, and awaiting an archaeologist as their afternoon guest speaker. First, though, House leader Debbie Lute led them in a fun team-building activity. Groups of students used newspapers, scissors, and tape to create articles of clothing, each with a specific theme. More than just a fun way to spend 25 minutes, this activity incorporated team work, creativity, project design, collaboration, competition, and presentation skills. And, yes, it was a lot of fun!
We at The Foundry are so grateful to Mrs. Lute and Mrs. McCully for mentoring our students in House! These photos are a representation of the comradery that is being fostered among the students, but House runs even deeper that what you see here. In House, students learn life skills, read and discuss important books, evaluate themselves, hold each other and themselves accountable, and so much more. The Foundry truly believes that the support system provided by House is an invaluable facet in the complete, well-rounded education of a student.
Don't forget! Exhibition Night is right around the corner: 7:00-9:00 p.m. on December 17 at Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church at the corner of Peachtree Parkway and Hwy. 54 in the heart of PTC. This event is open to the public, so invite everyone you know! During the evening, a table will be set up for Coffee with the Board. We'd love to chat with you about The Foundry!
