Spectrum Families and Friends,
For those in Early Elementary and up, you may have noticed a different energy in the school this week. The students have been engaged in Interest Groups, and it has been fantastic! There is great value in taking the time to engage fully over several days in a topic of study. It allows children to apply deeply and broadly the questioning, thinking, planning, communicating, and creating skills they learn throughout the curriculum. It fosters authentic collaboration and building relationships. It is just downright FUN!
A shout out to everyone who helped make Interest Groups successful, especially our amazingly dedicated teachers and staff: THANK YOU!
Dr. Mary Beth Cunat
