In the spirit of Flat Stanley, many families in our Providence Community participated in a photo-sharing project with Green Bean during the summer. As you can see in this album, he has had an amazing adventure!
He’s traveled far and wide to visit the Caribbean, Germany, Canada and Alaska; and enjoyed nature right here in the Bluegrass at Raven Run, Red River Gorge and other scenic places. Talk about National landmarks! Imagine seeing The Grand Canyon, The Space Needle, Fallingwater, and The Goonies house all in one summer! He’s been to Disney World several times, he’s taken lots of swimming lessons, and visited exciting cities like New York, Chicago, Hollywood, Charleston and Seattle. And because he’s a Montessori Life-Long Learner, he didn’t miss out on wonderful museums and great summer camps. He soaked up a fair share of American history at Monticello, Boston, and Washington D.C. while he was at it.
If you’re worried that his pace was too intense, fear not. There was awesome R & R on some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere. Click on the slide show, or scroll through to read the captions. Thanks to all the families who participated!
Guess what? It didn’t rain this year!
Earth Day projects were shared, and everyone enjoyed the Scholastic book fair — complete with Clifford!
Some of our third graders collaborated on a Water Shed project, complete with a scale model of our surrounding area:
And of course, a good time was had by all at the picnic. It was a glorious day!

Scouting is alive and well at Providence — scouts have been meeting at our school for over a decade. Here on the Providence campus are two scouting projects done by Providence alums:
Alumnus Wesley Walker created this amphitheater. This sets the stage for student performances, as well as occasional outdoor lessons.
Alumnus Tyler Weathers contributed this bridge and rock garden to the Providence campus. Students cross it to go from the FAAB (Founders’ Arts and Activities Building) to the playground, or to our main building.
Providence parent Jonathan Ware shared some news about a fantastic project that Lexington’s Gray Construction has done with the Boy Scouts of America. Click here to read his blog post about it!
Providence students recently participated in “Kids Can Hunger,” a food drive to benefit God’s Pantry Food Bank. Our students collected 1,691 pounds of food — that’s a retail value of $2,807! Way to go!

The students are keeping the pottery wheel busy in preparation for chili night. Parents can buy their child’s bowl and enjoy some delicious chili. Put it on your calendar now!
Bowls thrown by the Elementary students.
Primary students will have bowls like these and their hand print will be set in glaze.
Ready for glazing.
See you all there!
