All the Peachtown students are studying birds right now. We have several bird feeders set around the school, and the children are keeping close track of visitors to the feeders. Art classes have been devoted to making all sorts of bird sculptures, drawings and masks and music students are even learning "Rockin' Robin."

Bird's students are participating in a program in conjunction with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, called Connecting Kids through Birds: http://connectingkidsthroughbirds.wikispaces.com/

Outings to the Ornithology Lab and Montezuma Wildlife Refuge are coming up soon and next week Professor Tom Vawter will talk to us about his recent trip to the Galapagos Islands.
