First graders from Bridges Preparatory School went on a field trip to Dempsey Farms last Thursday. Students loved picking pumpkins out in the field with friends. They also enjoyed listening to Farmer Davey tell about farming and about the different fruits and vegetables that they grow at the farm.

BRIDGES PREP

• New York Times best-selling author Dave Burgess, of “Teach Like a Pirate,” visited Bridges teachers from San Diego this past Saturday, October 18, and brought along his outrageously energetic performance art, mixed with a “too powerful to ignore” inspirational message of how and why to become more passionate in the classroom.

Blues Musician Scott Ainslie visited BA last week and both performed a concert for the students and gave afterschool workshops. The concert description was “Across The Color Line: The African South”, and illustrated the African retentions still influencing American popular music today. A crowd favorite was the cigar box guitar, which only had one string and was made from an old cigar box and a pool cue! What an awesome experience for students and teachers.

Recently, Beaufort High Teacher Cadets attended College Day at The Citadel.  The Citadel is our college partner that extends college credit for successful completion of the teacher cadets class. The university partners one of their professors with our class, and that person periodically comes to teach the class. College Day was spent learning about the application process, financial aid and college life. Teacher cadets were also addressed by the SC Teacher of the Year and Principal of the Year. Pictured above is Teacher Cadet sponsor, Debi Kidd, at far right, along with members of the Teacher Cadet class.

Literature Comes To Life: The fourth grade class at Beaufort Academy went to Hunting Island to learn more about zooplankton and phytoplankton. The students impressed the Park Ranger as they shared their extensive knowledge of organisms and habitats. In addition, they completed island tasks like crabbing and searching the beach for supplies much like Karana was forced do in order to survive in the novel, “Island of the Blue Dolphins.” It was a great learning experience, literature connection and tribe triumph.
