"The first thing that visitors see as they enter Hutchinson is not our 100% graduation rate or our clean drinking water, it’s the hydrangeas in front of the historical society, the lilacs that circle the gazebo, and the daffodils behind the dugouts. It takes a firm hand and an iron heart to be good at what I do. Jessica: I admire your conviction, Ms. Lloyd-Waterman. But tell me, why. . ." Excerpt from Small Town Crier: Episode 1.
This Week at Wheeler, we started discovering our favorite places and the opportunities they provide for inspiration. In the NuVuX Studio we found 8 students beginning a project in extraterrestrial communication using design, math, animal behavior and problem-solving. At the Farm, our Early Childhood Forest Fridays students collaborated to build the forts and forest classrooms they'll use all year. Upper School science students volunteered to share a love for science with the wider community at the upcoming Big Bang Science WaterFire on September 28, and we found new ways to celebrate all we love about Wheeler in this month's DIB Lab sticker design challenge. Plus, we learned that THREE global trips are set for 2020 as part of our Strategic Design to engage local and global communities as critical resources for learning, experience, and impact. Miss Wheeler called her school a "hive of industry." That's still so true!
