Policy Change and Apologia Worldview Curriculum

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange


It was with regret that we announce a change to our store’s policy. We have had a recurring problem with children abusing our farm animals. The chickens, sheep and goats have all been subject to hitting and poking with sticks, the chickens are chased daily and we have even had an animal killed at the hands of an unsupervised child. Children have entered the farm outbuildings without permission and climbed on the equipment which is dangerous.

For the safety of the children and welfare of the animals, children are no longer permitted to  roam around our property, including the parking lot, without the direct supervision of a parent. We will be removing the play equipment (swing set, balls) so as not to be confusing to the kids. A sign will be hung to remind customers of the new policy.

However, well-behaved and supervised children are always welcome in the store. Children are still welcome to interact with the animals in a positive way in the presence of their parent. It was always our desire to share the experience of farm animals with visitors, and we wish to continue to do so.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me directly at pace@ddogcom.net

Apologia Worldview

From the “What We Believe” series, Apologia has a new biblical worldview program for grades 1-9, in the style of their elementary science series. There are 3 titles (and a 4th soon to be released):

Who is God and Can I Really Know Him?
Who Am I and What am I Doing Here?
Who is My Neighbor and Why Does He Need Me?
What on Earth Can I Do?

There are three parts available for each title: student text ($37), Notebook Journal ($22.80) and for younger children a Coloring Book ($7.60)

You can get more information from the Apologia website here.

Feel free to stop in and flip through it. It’s very pretty!
