What is COW? C.O.W. (Community Open Work) is a unique time at the Earth School. C.O.W. occurs every Wednesday from 1:50- 2:40 p.m. It is when all Earth School classes simultaneously have Open Work periods where students choose their own work. Activities are wide-ranging from developing projects to building with blocks, creating a play, or working in other classrooms. The community aspect of C.O.W. is part of what makes it such an anticipated part of the school week. Students, teachers, and parents also run special “C.O.W. clubs” at this time. C.O.W. clubs are groups of students who gather together around a common interest or activity. Please consider volunteering to run a C.O.W. Club in your child's class. It is a way for you to share your own interests with the school community, to get to know students, and to contribute diverse and rich experiences for our children. If you are interested in running a C.O.W club, please contact Chelsea@theearthschool.org or Erica@theearthschool.org
Past C.O.W. Clubs include Sports Club, Japanese Club, Sewing Club, Garden Club, School Newspaper.
