Spring 2024

The purpose of the Oaks Outdoors program is to extend learning beyond the four walls of the home and classroom. Our spring semester will run from February 28th-May 22nd.

This term we will be studying:

<Natural Resources> led by Ginger Westcott (Natural Resource Conservationist with the Stanly Soil and Water Conservation District)

<Common Arts> (our branch of study focused on reviving lost or dying arts) "Field to Fork" (outdoor cooking, fermentation, dehydration, canning, and more!)

<Nature Study> Amphibians! We follow the approach of John Muir Laws and will closely study and journal about frogs, toads, salamanders and more!

COST: $5/student* (Kindergarten & up) per week ($20/week family max).

*This cost includes instruction & basic materials to participate in each session. For a supply fee of $25/student, you can take home some of the "fruits of our labor"! Your student will take home:


             Week 1:    4-6 tomato plants (to be taken home once ready to transplant) 

                      Week 2:    Raise a Frog Kit (one per family)

                      Week 5:    a pint of sauerkraut

                      Week 10:  a jar of strawberry preserves

This fee must be paid for in advance to ensure we prepare for the correct number of students.
