an invitation

Tomorrow, June 7, we have a fundraiser and open house at our new hands-on learning center at the Clear Spring School. Of course, the whole school is actually a hands-on learning center, but this new facility will bring additional focus and capacity.  We hope it inspires other schools to grasp the necessity of hands-on learning.

Getting moved in will take place over time. We have a $35,000 matching grant, so aside from my inviting you to attend, I also invite you to participate as a donor. Your contributions to the Clear Spring School are doubled by the match and are tax deductible.

It will have a dedicated area for art and craft, a maker space, a room for video production and editing, a culinary arts center, a space for dance, and a space in which to relocate the school wood shop. Getting moved into the new wood shop requires an addition and modest renovation toward which a large portion of the funds raised will be applied.

The new hands on learning center is adjacent to the Clear Spring School 374 Dairy Hollow Road in Eureka Springs. The open house/cookout/reception/fundraiser will be from 5 - 7 PM and children are invited.We will have woodworking activities for children and adults. Contributions can be mailed to PO Box 511 Eureka Springs, AR 72632 USA. You can also contribute by credit card by calling 479-253-7888.

Make, fix, create, and assist others in learning likewise.
