Thematic Study

Each academic year Greenwood Friends School uses a cross-curriculum theme to integrate studies across traditional academic disciplines and age groups. The theme for 2017-18 is A Walk in the Woods, which holds great promise for expanding children’s appreciation of nature and stewardship of the environment.

Early Childhood Center

Greenwood Friends School is very excited for the opening of the Early Childhood Center in 2018. This center will serve 3-, 4-, and 5-year olds in a developmentally appropriate curriculum.

The Penn class (ECC) spent time today drawing pictures for sick children in the hospital, making blankets for children who don't have blankets and creating a background for the all school collaborative art project. (Pictures will be delivered to the Ronald McDonald house with the soup and bread and the blankets will be donated to the Women's Shelter in Bloomsburg). The Fox (1-2) and Mott (3-4) class made soups, breads, and cookies for the Ronald McDonald House in Danville. The Paul Class (5-6) made creative banners for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s guiding beliefs and began thinking of service projects they would like to do together. The 7-8th Grade Class researched major events and key players in the Civil Rights Movement and created mixed-media art pieces and lanterns and made phone calls to local organizations to see how they might be of service. At the end of the day, the school gathered for meeting for worship, shared their work, and sang songs. ... See MoreSee Less
