Throughout the year, students had ongoing opportunities to build, create, move around, and explore, while also learning to focus and invest the tenacity required to learn news skills and new content knowledge.
Art All Around Us
All year, students made art, both integrated into the full curriculum and as part of weekly art sessions. The year culminated with a trip to Central Park to paint and with our annual art show.
To get through the dark days of winter, students organized a running club that did lunchtime runs twice a week (1.5 miles) and collected sponsor money for Pediatric Cancer Research. They raised a lot of money and turned icy lemons into heartwarming lemonade.
Our final event of the school year features presentations during which students spoke about specific things they learned and found challenging this year, and how they think they grew as learners and people. It was followed by a graduation ceremony.
