Galapagos Rockford Charter School Visits the Farm

May 20, 2013

Dear Staff of Angelic Organics Learning Center,

 

Thank you so much for providing our sixth graders with a fantastic learning experience on your farm.  They came away so excited (and so tired!), and they truly enjoyed their time. There were even some who were not initially looking forward to the trip that ultimately decided they had fun, and there were others who did not want to leave!


I appreciate that you were able to be flexible with your programming to meet our curricular needs.  Linking the farm trip to our curriculum, including the soil study and lunar cycle, was really meaningful for my scholars.  Additionally, seeing a garden outside of their school setting and on a much larger scale was impactful as well.

 

It was also really neat to watch the scholars interact with the animals.  In many ways, I think it was really therapeutic for them, and I wish there was some way they could have that sort of interaction on a more regular basis.

 

Thanks again for your patience and good nature.  Our scholars truly benefitted academically and emotionally from this experience!

 

Sincerely,

Christa Haverly

From the students:

 

"Thank you for showing me and my peers around Angelic Organics.  I had a lot of fun.  My favorite part was moving the chickens to a new home.  But I had fun trying to pick up the hens and seeing and learning a lot of new things."

Love,

De marea

 

"Thank you for letting us go to Angelic Organics to learn how to make corn bread and I learned that munewer (sic) helps grow things for us."
