Children proudly wore their Grove School class t-shirts and shades, to remind them just how truly bright their futures are! We are SO PROUD of our Pre-K students and their exciting journey ahead in Kindergarten. We know, without a doubt, that they are more than ready : )
I love going into classrooms and looking at our walls!
There are so many wonderful displays throughout the school highlighting all the creative and imaginative work our students do each and every day. What amazes me all the time are the pictures that students make themselves, the words they write, and the answers they give to life’s many questions.
By displaying work that children create themselves, it builds confidence, pride, and a sense that what they create is of value and importance. Here are just a few examples of how The Grove School of Cary shows our students that their learning here is of the utmost value!
Now accepting enrollments!!
Our private Kindergarten program will be starting August 26th 2013 at The Grove School of Cary! We will be using a popular homeschooling program called “K12 Interactive” which incorporates the use of our SmartBoards into the curriculum. The curriculum is fun, engaging, and highly interactive!
We will stay true to our Grove philosophy by providing fresh and organic snacks and drinks, exploration and interaction in our Outdoor Grove classroom, and hands-on, activity based learning each and every day.
The program is open to Kindergarten age ready children that are 5 years of age by December 31st.

It was such a treat to have all of the wonderful ladies in our student’s lives come and visit us for a special afternoon at The Grove School of Cary!
We served refreshments of fresh cut strawberries, ladyfingers and lemonade. Each classroom had a special project planned for the event including planting flowers in recycled baby food jars, recycled jewelry making, recycled sun catchers, and recycled cardboard picture frame decorating. Thank you to all the lovely ladies that attended!
Please join us Monday May 13th from 4 pm- 6 pm for our Lady I Love event. Come and enjoy refreshments and a special activity with your child and his/her teachers!
We’ve had such a wonderful start to Teacher Appreciation Week here at the Grove School of Cary!
Monday, we let our teachers know that we could not “survive” without them! Each classroom received a “Teacher Survival Kit” full of small and useful goodies!
Tuesday, Grove school parents donated a plethora of salad bar items to show teachers just how good they are for our health!
Throughout the week, yellow circles are available for families to fill out “Thank you for….” to place on all classroom doors!
We’re excited to see what the rest of the week will bring for our fabulous Grove teachers!
For afternoon snack our friends in the Apple Grove (Pre-K Room 3) were told we would be eating a WHOLE plant!!
We were excited and not quite sure we could eat roots, stems, leaves, flowers and seeds….Yikes!
We put all the parts together and found out we can do it.
Seeds…shelled and roasted pumpkin seeds
Leaves…lettuce leaves from “our Grove Garden”
and finally roots…baby carrots.
Let’s all show our Grove teachers how much we love them!!!
Every month, a classroom at The Grove School of Cary features a book for our monthly book club. For April, the Apple Grove (one of our 4-5 year old classrooms) did a project on Growing Vegetable Soup by Lois Ehlert.
After enjoying the colorful pictures and familiar text of the book, students examined fresh root vegetables like beets, carrots, potatoes and radishes from the Farmer’s Market! Students learned that root vegetables grow beneath the soil. Students then discussed and illustrated the root vegetables they would like to grow this year in our outdoor Grove garden!
A huge THANK YOU to all the Grove teachers and families for your support last Saturday for our Spring Planting Day and potluck! It was a gorgeous day and children and familes enjoyed some outdoor crafts including making garden flags and plant signs. We also successfully planted a green bean tipi, a vine garden, two butterfly gardens, a sensory garden, an herb gardens, a pizza garden and a salsa garden! We can’t wait to watch it all grow!!
A very happy Earth Day from the Grove School of Cary!!
