It’s a different kind of week at Grand Haven Christian Schools. Students aren’t in the classroom. It’s not because of snow days or being absent, it’s because of a program called Winterim.
It’s a program that takes school beyond the four walls of their classrooms to explore hands-on learning. The school is partnering with the community to help get students out in the community to experience different careers, activities, hobbies, vocations and services. Some kids are learning astronomy, pottery, painting and even snowmobiling. Others are taking hunting safety and cooking classes.
School leaders taking a break between semesters for Winterim helps give students a break from regular classroom learning. They’re excited to come to school and explore new things you can’t learn in the classroom.
