    Students at the elementary schools enjoyed performances by traditional Japanese drumming troupe Tsukasa Taiko. Be sure to ask your child about the costumes the musicians wore and how they enjoyed the sound of the drums.

  • Habits of Mind

    During the first four weeks of school, Kindergarten students in the Inquiry Block learned about the Habits of Mind. We referred to these habits as our tools to help us tackle challenges. The Kindergartners knew that their brains were their "toolboxes" and that they could use these tools to help them. The students learned through interactive, hands-on centers which focused on collaborating and communicating with others. Over these four weeks, the children learned all 16 habits, practiced them, and they now apply them to their daily routines. They are doing an incredible job!
