Silent and Live

Our Children’s House students came together to work on this tapestry – rich, colorful, unique and yet blending together so harmoniously – reflecting perfectly their community. 


The oldest students worked on this wonderful science and art project that captured their spirit of enquiry and melded it with their creativity. The result is stunning students. 


Some of the Children’s House students took their energy and love of nature and all things natural to create this gorgeous, rustic windchime – which will look as beautiful indoors as it will outdoors. 


The Elementary Classroom students worked with their characteristic enthusiasm coupled with attention to detail. They researched the wildflowers of Wisconsin, drew and wood burnt all essentials for a Baking Basket. 2 hand-embroidered tea towels, a cookie jar and a recipe book of their favorite recipes complete this fantastic and beautiful auction item.


The youngest students of the Children’s House classroom had so much fun with this smushing and stamping artwork. They were delighted at the coming together and blending of colors to form a gorgeous background for their leaf silhouette stamps.  

Meet Brett Foster – parent in Nature’s Classroom, IT guru, musician and a FUN person to be around! Brett will be the auctioneer for the Live Auction segment at the Gala, this year.

This very special offering comes from the students of Adolescent classroom – a handmade rug (approximately 3.5 feet by 4.75 feet) with wool from the sheep of our farm. From start to finish, the students have been involved in each and every step – from the shearing of the sheep to the final creation. Truly unique!
