The seed of the New Morning School was planted over 40 years ago when Elaine Kennedy attended the University of Michigan. Elaine was inspired by her professors and continues to be driven by her passion to provide exceptional educational opportunities to students.
 
 
New Morning School's very own Elaine Kennedy brings this entry to the George Lucas Foundation's Edutopia blog, discussing Museum, a cornerstone of education at New Morning School.
 
Excerpt:
With stories, games, dancing and food, students at New Morning School in Plymouth Township celebrated the culture of the original Americans on Wednesday.
New Morning's student “powwow” Wednesday morning was the culmination of a monthlong study of American Indians and their way of life. The project encompassed several subjects, including language, history and art, and helped sharpen students' research skills and their ability to work together.
“It was really amazing to see how cohesive the whole event really was,” said Kate Olson of Romulus, the mother of first-grader Greyson Nicholl. “It seemed as close to Native American culture as you could get.”
