Roundtables! 1/28, 1/29, 1/30
Parents, Educators, Family and Friends! We are Inviting you to a learning experience that has been alive and developing in some of the most innovative schools across the nation.
The Concept: Students should have the opportunity to share, reflect on, and discuss the work and learning they have done over the course of a semester, and they should do it with an audience that knows and cares for them. Roundtables are not polished presentations, but rather conversations about learning between small groups (around a table) of students, teachers, and invested community members like you.
We need YOU at the table. Directions and support will be provided.
6th& 7th Grade: January 28 from 11:45-3:10pm
8th Grade: January 29 from 11:45-3:10pm
3rd & 4th Grade: January 30 from 11:45-3:10pm
as soon as possible.

6th graders did a walking tour of Ft. Greene brownstones, and all were amazed at the incredible architecture and detail they had never really noticed before! Afterwards, they sculpted their own brownstone out of clay.
"Pic(ture) of the week" shines some light on the powerful learning that is happening, each and every day, inside of our classrooms. Just an image and a caption. Short and simple.
