John Wensman & Fiddlehead School receive Conservation Champion Award
Each year, Royal River Conservation Trust selects a person or organization doing exemplary conservation work in Maine to receive RRCT’s Maine Conservation Champion Award.
This year, John Wensman and Fiddlehead School were honored with the award in recognition for their roles connecting students to conservation land and the outdoors.
The mission of Fiddlehead School is to unfold the potential of children in a respectful, loving culture through authentic and meaningful experiences that sustain a sense of wonder, foster a love of learning, and embrace the interconnectedness of all things.
The purpose of Fiddlehead School of Arts & Sciences is to facilitate learning through an interdisciplinary approach to the arts and sciences in a safe, creative, fun and loving environment. We support happy, vibrant learners who create and shape their own lives and contribute to the quality of life around them.
How We Learn
At Fiddlehead, children will demonstrate competency in literacy, mathematics, science, visual and performing arts, and Spanish!
Using an inquiry-based model, children will also develop vital skills for 21st century citizenship: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and compassion.
Fiddlehead School of Arts and Sciences strives to be a safe community for all students, their families, and employees regardless of race and skin color, national origin and ancestry, religion, disabilities, gender (including gender identity and expression), and sexual orientation. We understand that creating a diverse and accepting community also means working to educate ourselves and one another, address bias, and apply critical analysis to our curriculum and materials. Members of our community will learn how and work to use inclusive language, challenge discrimination and stereotypes, and advocate for positive change. Our goal is to create a community of learners of all ages who feel safe to express themselves, explore the world around them, and develop and grow.
In Spring of 2017, Fiddlehead School established a Diversity Committee to consider our first steps in carrying out this work.
