As the summer changes to fall here in Duluth, Stone Ridge SDA Christian School is doing some changing of its own. This month the Indian Village was completed. Mr. Carlson has put up a teepee, wigwam and crafted an authentic looking fire pit. The village sits up on a rock out cropping and has become a favorite play place for the kids. With Indian blankets, baskets and different imitation food items found by Mrs. Carlson at local garage sales, the village has everything it needs for active imaginations.
The schools garden was harvested for the last time this year. The produce was used for lunches and at times sent home with those who had come up to the school. The garden beds have been weeded and hoed and are ready for next years’ growing season.
The school now sports it’s own web page and is working on community classes for the coming winter months. So far a camera class, sewing class and parenting seminar are being considered.
In support of it’s mission mindedness, the school is taking steps now to begin production of its own one-hour educational show entitled, ”For Kids By Kids” for the local public television station. The program will feature cooking, storytelling segments, and art segments, done by the students as well as tips on how to do homework more effectively by their teacher, Mr. Carlson.
