The Stony Hill School Program
The Stony Hill School program is a historical two-hour program with a simulated experience in a one-room school. The school marm, dressed in authentic 1880 period costume, and using books and materials of that day, teaches the children what it was like to attend school in Ozaukee County 100 years ago, and encourages an appreciation for the education system of today.
Our goal is to give 4th grade students an opportunity to understand and appreciate "old-fashioned" values, the educational system of the past, and the work ethic. Children will learn to recognize the differences and similarities in procedure between the school of the 1880’s and that of today. We hope to instill in the children a sense of patriotism and pride for the U.S. flag, and for the educational system our ancestors developed 100 years ago. While the programming is geared toward 4th grade we are able to accommodate all age groups and tailor the program to your grade level and curriculum needs.
OUR PROGRAM OFFERS TWO OPTIONS:
A. Spend from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Stony Hill School. Curriculum includes: raising the flag, reading from 1880 readers, writing using quill pens, arithmetic, using a slate, ringing the school bell, and sitting in desks connected to each other.
