We were so happy here at the Hospital School 
when Cale came to visit and we saw how great 
he was getting around on his crutches! He spent 
a long time in the hospital earlier this year with 
complications and surgeries following breaking 
his ankle. He’s been so positive and strong 
during this whole experience.

We are proud of him and all his hard work!

field trip to the NC Zoo without leaving the 
hospital. The NC Zoo visited students and 
 brought animal artifacts to teach kids about 
animal adaptations and digestion.

Thanks to Judy’s Bubbles the Academic 
Troubadour program was able to host
Jen Davis.  Jen worked with students 
on animal stretching and belly  breathing. 
 The animal poses and breathing techniques 
the students learned help calm anxious feelings 
and nervousness.  The students and teachers 
enjoyed the session and left feeling calm.  This 
class was such a success that the Hospital School 
will have Jen come back once a month
 for more classes.

her staff visited the Hospital School to teach students about 
how soda and sweet tea can discolor teeth. Students made 
their own toothpaste and brushed boiled eggs which represented
 tooth enamel. What a fun way to learn about dental health!

What's the opposite of Making? Why, Unmaking of course. 
Using tools and brute strength (thanks for Mr. Robinson 
and tutor Harrison), kids took apart an old vcr, alarm clock, 
router, and tape player, saving the pieces for later to 
create something new Stay tuned!
