Student Grant Initiative:
Know Your School
At Noyes, there will be some very busy students coordinating a “Know Your School Scavenger Hunt” for all the kids to play! The in-house, customized scavenger hunt will give practice to the youngest students in map-reading and team building skills as they explore all kinds of areas in and around their own school. They will gain familiarity with the space and the people within. Students in the middle grades will gain practice in using compasses as they follow orienteering clues, and strengthen their spatial skills as they make their own maps for others to use. Older students will use research to solve riddles about the school’s history and influential people who shaped what Noyes is today and the spaces within it. Though the skills that students will gain are varied by grade level, the students at Noyes will no doubt gain a shared understanding of and appreciation for the special place they call school.
