Photos from the Week

Toddler trip to the park

Last week, our Toddlers enjoyed an adventure in Piccadilly Park!

Casa 1 mixed-age classroom in action…

Teamwork is dreamwork! When a junior Casa student was working on a sensorial extension, and couldn’t quite reach the top, her senior Casa peer came along to help her out! What a beautiful collaboration.

Lunar New Year in Casa

Several of our classrooms celebrated Lunar New Year last week. In Casa 4, we were truly blessed to have families within our community share in their special traditions and customs involved in the Lunar / Chinese New Year.  Our students were truly captivated by the presentations. A special thank-you to Yeji, Jungwoo, Susan, Ellie, and Liam for their beautiful lessons.

Lower El Gymnastics!

The Lower Elementary students had a great time on their field trip to Forest City Gymnastics Club last week!

Elementary art … and some rad retro vibes

What’s a Retro Party without boomboxes?

UE Winter trip is on!

The Year 4-6 students arrived safely Monday afternoon to SNOW! (… and very spotty internet connection for the teachers.) Here’s to a fun week of outdoor activities and team building!

MMUN presentations

Last week, our MMUN delegates and support staff gave a presentation to students and parents on all the work they have done since September. Delegates leave for their trip to NYC next week. Good luck to all of our delegates!!
