The Bethlehem Children’s School, an independent pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school with an environmental education curriculum focus, invites the community to its Open House Sept. 23 from 4 p.m to 6 p.m. This will be an opportunity to visit and tour the school, set on four wooded acres at 12 Fisher Blvd. in Slingerlands.
The event is being held in conjunction with the Giffy’s Bar-B-Q school fundraiser, so people are also welcome to join the school for dinner and make it an evening for the whole family. The school will have ongoing hands-on activities in its classrooms, trail hikes on the property and outdoor projects.
The Bethlehem Children’s School calls itself a little school with a big education, nurturing creative, confident learners in a green environment. The school provides solid, nurturing learning with minimal stress in a family-style atmosphere with devoted imaginative teachers. The school features small multiage classrooms with no standardized tests. The calling of the Bethlehem Children’s School is to help all children determine the skills they naturally possess and how they learn best in order to promote an enthusiasm for being a more curious, more involved and more effective lifelong learner.
This year's school-wide theme is “Compassion for All. Sustaining Our Future.”
