Quilt 7 is in Aberdeen, South Dakota Preparing for the 2013 – 2014 School Year…

DSCF8294Quilt 7 has successfully journeyed from school to school and has been returned to South Dakota, where Quilt will rest up and get ready to meet new students during the 2013 – 2014 school year.

In summary, to start the school year, Quilt 7 traveled to Canada to meet students at Garderie Bonne Adventure Preschool.  Following a trip to Canada, Quilt traveled to Michigan visiting 3 schools in October, November, and December.  In January, Quilt traveled to North Dakota and back to Wisconsin for two more school visits before returning to South Dakota for the summer.

During the year, students enjoyed meeting Quilt and participated in a variety of activities that their teachers chose to help students build skills listed in their curriculum.  Most of the classrooms submitted a page or two to the scrapbook that travels with Quilt.

Quilt 7 wants to thank all of the teaches and classrooms that were such wonderful hosts!

During the summer months, a new schedule will be created and in August, Quilt 7 will be packed carefully in a postal box and shipped off to follow a new journey.  If you are interested in hosting an Iditarod Traveling Quilt for the 2013 – 2014 school year, send an email and get on the list!
