I’ve encouraged the students to go on a “Seed Scavenger Hunt”
and bring back their findings in a little baggie by Tuesday, May 21
. They might freely explore their yard or go on a walk and get a close up look of different flowers and plants. A “Sock Walk” is a fun way to pick up “hitch hiker” seeds: put an old, oversized sock over your shoe and walk around outside, brushing up against plants and see if you collect anything. If an outdoor scavenger hunt isn’t possible, they could look for different seeds in their kitchen (bird seed, sunflower seeds, nuts, beans, wheat…) Have fun hunting!
As the weather warms it is a good time to revisit the school dress code standards. Click here to access the complete Quest Academy dress code page: Dress Code
Here are a few we would like to specifically remind you about:
- Skirts, shorts or skorts are to be no shorter than 2 inches above the kneecap.
- All shirts must be long enough to remain tucked in.
- All students must wear closed toe and closed heel shoes with socks and stockings. Socks or footed tights must be worn at all times.
- Shoes cannot have lights or wheels.
- Hair must be kept neat and have a combed appearance and appropriate for school. No extreme hair color or styles, only “natural” hair colors are permitted (for example, fuchsia or “hot pink” hair is not “natural”).
