Excerpts from Handel's Messiah will be presented at St. Mary's Church, 429 E. Allen St., in Hudson on Thursday, 12/12, at 5 p.m. and Friday, 12/13, at 7:30. High School students should arrive one hour prior to the performance and Lower School students should arrive 45 minutes prior to the performance.
To develop an understanding of the EARTH curriculum, it is helps to look at both the year’s blocks of study and the daily schedule.
Following morning chores, the children will join their respective classes for main lesson. After main lesson, snack and recess with their age-mates, EARTH students will gather together for the morning project. Depending on the block, this could be anything from gardening to working with horses. In the afternoon, the students will have one academic session, either math or English, working cognitively with the subject of the morning, and then an artistic or craft project also centered around the morning work.
