Good morning! To encourage conversation I'm going to start making weekly posts about what's happening with Cargill School of Natural Learning and the classes offered by Cargill Curriculum.

We're starting a new year and therefore a new semester this week. Full time students are finishing up their study of North America and the Great Depression. Chemistry classes continue to learn about types of chemical reactions. Biology students are beginning their unit on ecology.

Looking forwards to the monthly science pop-up classes? This month elementary students are learning about snow and ice while middle school students are digging into caves.

If you ever want more information on any of the classes that we offer, please message me!

Have a great week!
