Building on our growing understandings of self and community, we will collaboratively create a world of fantastical creatures in a habitat of our own making.

Each week culminates with a sharing on Friday afternoon where students invite family members and friends to experience their inquiry and learning.

Spring Deep Dive

Everyone will have a role in our new mail room! Each week culminates with a sharing on Friday afternoon where students invite family members and friends to experience their inquiry and learning.
