September 23: Nursery School Matt's Maker Space
Matt's Maker Space was founded by the Conover family to honor the memory of their son, Matt, Mt. Lebanon resident and former student of St. Paul's Episcopal Nursery School. Since Matt died in 2002, the Conover family has worked to give back to the community that supported and comforted them in their loss. During Matt's illness, his youngest sister Anna was attending St. Paul's Nursery School and the school staff as well as the St. Paul's community walked alongside the Conovers during the very sad and difficult season.
Matt like many young children loved to create and when given the materials, space and opportunity made some rather spectacular creations. We are honored and excited about the addition of Matt's Maker Space to the nursery school this fall.
A maker space is a hands-on place where students can use materials and simple tools to make crafts or to solve problems and apply STEAM — science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. "Making", sometimes called "tinkering," is a natural fit for a play-based program such as St. Paul's Nursery School. It supports the school's "hands-on" approach to learning and will provide a dedicated creative space, filled with interesting new materials and tools, allowing the nursery school children an opportunity to create, invent and of course learn.
Young children are natural "makers" and St. Paul's teachers have been providing opportunities to create, engineer and fabricate long before it was officially labeled "making". Our school encourages child-led projects that are open-ended making the experience more meaningful to children and fostering depth in their learning.
September 30: All About This Year's General Convention
This Summer, parishioners Lisa Brown and Jon Delano served as Deputies to General Convention. General Convention is the governing body of The Episcopal Church. It meets every three years, and is made up of deputies (and bishops) from each diocese, who consider important matters facing the Church. Learn more about what kinds of work was done this year, and about how the lay people are helping our Church transform our world and bring about the kingdom of God.
