Catching up with Preschool 4
Peek into a preschool classroom on any given day during the pandemic and you will observe childhood industry in its purest form. On campus or online, you see heads bent over Lego creations in the making, or you might see exuberant dancing on the floor and on the screen, or see and hear partnerships and collaborations across the room that occur spontaneously despite social distancing hoops to maintain separate areas.
A “Fraction” of Math in First Grade
The first grade has been learning all about fractions. Students were able to identify and explain that fractions are a part of a whole object or set of objects. Throughout the year, they have developed their ability to categorize, sort and divide objects. Prior knowledge helped them make the connection that whole numbers can be composed and decomposed into parts.
4th Grade Research Project
What is the Super Bowl? Where Are the Great Pyramids? What Was the Women’s Rights Movement? Where Is the Bermuda Triangle? Have you ever wondered about these topics? Well, the fourth graders certainly have! For the past few weeks, they have become experts on these subjects and so many more!

Finding Flow: Developing Resiliency and Fulfillment in the time of COVID
Founder/Executive Director, Flow Research Collective, and Author, The Art of Impossible: A Peak Performance Primer
March 15, 2021, 7:00 PM
Zoom Link provided following RSVP
About AoI (Art of Impossible)
- “Peak performance” is the stage that comes after resilience, when you grow and transform yourself beyond your highest expectations. “Peak Performance” can be found in extreme sports, but also in business and in life!
- With resilience you learn to overcome difficult circumstances. By developing the right mindset, we all can move on to the next stage: thriving.
- How can we take advantage of life’s biggest challenges (e.g. pandemic, social unrest, political and economic instability) — to develop the grit and core skills that will enable us to both overcome these challenges AND fully embrace them as opportunities for growth, personal exploration and excellence?
- Join us for an exciting virtual discussion with Art of Impossible author Steven Kotler, to learn more and talk through how “utterly uncomfortable and impossible circumstances” can actually lead you to great success and fulfillment in life!

Have your child join their peers in a spirited collaborative virtual world with us.
