Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
On January 21st, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the afternoon preschool classes and the kindergarten class joined other children from the Carnegie Mellon University community and student volunteers from the Mortar Board Honor Society at the University Center to collage and decorate "The Children's School Peace Sculpture" and to color books of "Peace and Friendship Songs". They all joined Mrs. Bird in a heartfelt sing-a-long and enjoyed Teddy Grahams and juice before returning to school.
On Tuesday, August 28th, the Children's School Staff met at Station Square
fountain to begin an afternoon of inspiration for our Whole School WATER Unit
this year. We then toured the Golden Triangle via segway, crossing two of
Pittsburgh's three rivers, exploring the river front, and discovering many calming
fountains in the city.
From October 21st to 31st, 2011, three Children's School educators were privileged to learn about culture and education in South Korea and to share our early childhood experience with children, parents, pre-service teachers and experienced educators there.
From January 8th to 12th, 2012, we hosted a brief visit by Duksung's Early Childhood Department Chair, lab school Director, and six teachers. These educators toured the Children's School, the Cyert Center, the Falk School at Pitt, and the Campus School at Carlow. While they observed classrooms, interacted with educators, children and faculty, visited informal education contexts like Phipps Conservatory and the Children's Museum, and met with early childhood leaders at PAEYC, we discussed possibilities for future collaboration to enhance professional development and education.
The robot Keepon was featured on Plum TV's "Masters of Innovation" in an episode entitled "Robots" about Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute.
