Students at Pine Level have begun social/emotional learning within the curriculum this year. Mrs. Franklin’s Kindergarten class has incorporated saying positive affirmations first thing in the mornings.

Autaugaville School Pre-K Visits Prattville Airport

Autaugaville School Pre K Visits Prattville Airport

Pre-K students from Autaugaville School recently visited the Prattville Airport for a fun and educational field. They were able to attend a program presented by Pilots and Paws. Pilots and Paws is an organization where volunteer pilots fly rescue animals to safety. The students viewed a video with a cute song to learn what the volunteer pilots do and how they could help animals in shelters. Students were able to sit on the plane for pictures and had the opportunity to see a plane land and taxi on the runway. The students had a blast and this activity enhanced their current unit of study on “PETS”. Each child received a PnP coloring book and answered questions to earn a free t-shirt. Their teacher received a RADAR’S DEAM PnP children’s book for the class. For other teachers interested in this trip, which targets students in grades K-2, please contact Elisabeth Gardner at 334-324-5001 or the Prattville Airport at 334-361-0060.
