October 2015

Enjoying the hay ride at Fischer Farms.

The very first JCSHG field trip was to Fischer Farms and it has been an annual tradition every since.  On Oct. 6, 11 of our families (32 people) gathered at Fischer Farms to enjoy a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to pick gourds, mini pumpkins, and pie pumpkins. Then we had plenty of time to enjoy the corn maze, hay bale maze, corn box, and the farm animals. We always have a fun time there. Thank you, Fischer Farms!

A few of the self portraits done in a Frida Kahlo's style.
And a few more.
On Oct. 15, Art Club was led by Billie and she introduced us to Frida Kahlo.  We learned about Frida Kahlo's life and how her experiences influenced her art. We looked at several examples of her work, then the club was encouraged to complete a self portrait in a similar style.

On Oct. 26, our Quest Club held its first meeting. Members discussed the upcoming months, the first badge ceremony, and ideas for meetings and field trips. Families reported enjoying the program and many of the kids shared what badges they were working on at home. Two members, Zoe and Ava, gave a presentation on the badge she is working on. They each made a poster board as a visual aid. Zoe read aloud an essay she had written. They both did a great job! The next meeting will be a badge ceremony where the kids will receive the new badges they have earned.
