Your Ah Haa Moment: Spooktacular Wrap Up And Sally Davis

Spook_tio In communities around the world like Telluride, day celebrations on October 24 represented a giant step in raising global and government awareness about the realities of climate change and the need to cap carbon emissions to 350 parts per million starting yesterday.

The Ah Haa School for the Arts played a major role locally that day by hosting two big events: the school's annual family day, Spooktacular was the first. Over 45 kids and parents showed up to make Halloween crafts like spooky spiders and trick-or-treat bags. Many of the craft projects involved repurposing and recycling and like magic, egg cartons and CDs turned into cool flying bats and jack o' lantern magnets.

At the end of the day, events culminated at the Ah Haa School for a community potluck, when around 30 people brought secret recipes to share, including many of the contenders for Town Council: Glider Bob, Chris Myers, Brian Werner, Lulu Hunt to name a few.

Each child will play many roles: birds, rivers, storms, tricksters, clowns—the sky is the limit. Story Theater builds language, music, and movement skills and sparks the imagination. A story well told, never grows old.
