Kindergarten students' clay turtles, September 2019


By Arda Thomson, Kindergarten Teacher

This year in Junior School we aligned the International Baccalaureate (IB) attributes with the Seven Sacred Teachings. For the month of September, we learned about truth, represented by a turtle. We read several books about truth and discussed how it connects with the IB attribute, principled.

On September 23, the Kindergarten classes had the fantastic opportunity to work with Stephanie Middagh, creative director and studio owner of Artful Owl. She showed the girls how to make clay turtles. Once the turtles are fired, the girls will decorate them and keep them as reminders to be truthful and to do the right thing, always. It was an amazing morning of fun and creativity! A big thank you to Ms Middagh for such a great opportunity.
