A Taste of Family Weekend at Conserve

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sunny Weather, summer-like temperatures, and beautiful Autumn colors provided for a wonderful Fall Family Weekend at Conserve.   On Friday, families had the opportunity to attend classes with their students to get a little taste of how we teach classes Conserve School style.   Friday’s classes included learning how to use a map and compass in Field Instruction, cooking food during History Class like the ways of Lewis and Clark, and enjoying a nature walk with guest speaker and naturalist John Bates during Science Class.  In the evening, the students involved with the Environmental Alliance Club at Conserve put on a movie night (popcorn includedJ) for everyone to enjoy.  They showed the documentary No Impact Man and led a discussion afterwards on how we can change little things in our everyday lives to help improve our impact that we have on the environment. 

Much of Saturday allowed students and their families to explore campus, take a bike out on the trails, canoe or kayak on one of our lakes, learn about traditional Ojibwa wild rice harvesting, and enjoy some ice cream from the School Store.   Saturday evening concluded with a very successful Variety Show that was organized completely by CS3 students.  During these 2 hours, students shared a wide range of talents from singing, dancing, playing piano, harp, guitar, and ukulele, juggling and karate.   During the Variety Show, there was a 50/50 Raffle, Auction, and Bake Sale to show support for the Trout Lake Environmental Learning Station program that spends time working with Conserve students in Science class throughout the semester. 

~A big Thank You to Hailey and all the students that put in a lot of hard work with the Variety Show, Raffle, Auction and Bake Sale, to those who donated items and baked goods, to Hanaa B. (CS3 Student) and Mandy Lundmark for photos for Family Weekend, and to the Families and Friends for your great support to the Conserve School community.
