Jim Poyser, of Earth Charter Indiana, was our partner this semester for the Climate Change immersion at The Children’s House. His latest project was a video he produced, in collaboration with the intrepid Math Roomers, who generated the idea for this chronicle, through conversations during our various workshops with Jim, regarding the safety of Santa in light of the melting icecaps. Jim remained faithful to his work, and gave them the creative space to act out their ideas, fears, and concerns about what is happening on their planet. This video is the end result. Many thanks to Jim Poyser, and to the cameraman, Ryan McCracken.
For more information on what you can do to help, contact Youth Power Indiana or Earth Charter Indiana.

The below open letter to the parent community of The Children’s House asks the parents to donate any hula hoops to the school for children to play with. At the Children’s House, we take these requests seriously as these types of activities can have a great benefit to a child’s learning and overall well being. We thank you for any donations you may have.
Can you please donate hula-hoops to The Children’s House? The kids want to play with hula- hoops. We will take care of them. They will not get broken. Please send hula-hoops for The Children’s House.

“On Monday, students from the Math homeroom enjoyed a field trip to the White Pine Wilderness Academy, arranged by Jim Poyser, our Climate Change educator, and hosted by Matt Shull, director of the academy. Students had the opportunity to learn more about nature, animals tracks, and fire making. This field trip was part of Jim Poyser’s partnership with The Children’s House this fall, as students participate in educational enrichment concerning climate change. Mr. Poyser will join students at the school on Friday, November 14, for an edition of his well-known Climate Change Game Show!

Bird Day was an idea initiated by a student, who wanted all the students to go to Eagle Creek to look at birds. So we made a plan and went! We saw Great Blue Herons, Cormorants, Egrets, Blue Jays, Gulls, and many other birds. We made it back before the rain. Just one of our many delightful field trips this fall!
