“You are a child. You are suitable to be awed.” NC poet laureate, Fred Chappell
“…If facts are the seeds that later produced knowledge and wisdom, then emotions and impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow. The years of childhood are the time to prepare the soil.” Rachel Carson – The Sense of Wonder
Here at Hall Fletcher Elementary, we are a learning community built around personal discovery using the methods of math, science, and technology. Not just technology as novelty, but as technology appropriate to the changing world our students inherit. More than anything else, it means that the sense of wonder and curiosity that underlies those three drives the methods by which we challenge our students to learn. The Science Notebooks that our students carry throughout their time here provide these methods: Question; Predict; Observe and take Data; Draw Conclusions. Built on wonder and curiosity, carried through with rigor, experienced with joy. Come see how we can challenge your child.
