TEACHERS AS STUDENTS: THE EIC MODEL IN ACTION!
Green Woods teaching staff is always learning. One way we prepared for the new school year was by stepping outside the classroom walls and into the great outdoors. In 2014, our school was designated as a National Model for teaching the EIC Program. EIC stands for using the Environment as an Integrating Context and, for more than a decade, the Green Woods teachers have been developing our own EIC curriculum, building supportive partnerships, and honing our skills to bring rich, cross-curricular learning experiences to our K-8 students.
Fourth Grade finished up their Watershed Year with a three-hour adventure in learning aboard a trawling vessel out of Cape May, New Jersey.
The students sailed the Atlantic, spotted a pod of dolphins, tossed and retrieved fishing nets, and then worked alongside experts to identify the diversity of creatures living in the Atlantic Ocean ecosystem. Come aboard! See for yourself how Green Woods 4th graders have “done it all” this year! Watch the video!

GREEN MOUNTAIN ENERGY GENERATES SOLAR POWERED LEARNING AT GREEN WOODS CHARTER!
Students and faculty at Green Woods Charter School celebrate a "sun rise" like they've never seen before as two brand new pole-mounted solar arrays were hoisted into place high in the sky above the school's front entrance. The solar arrays, donated by the Green Mountain Sun Club, will "energize" the main pumping station and maintain a constant flow of water to the schools pond and streams. Let the sun shine! Read more.
