These three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks are filled with learning, celebration, and fun. Whole-school Advent worship starts each day. Fourth and fifth grade students study the water cycle and make PSAs to care for our urban ecosystem. Grades 6-8 participate daily in small, multi-age book clubs. The Chorus and Choristers prepare to lead the school at Las Posadas.
And there’s miniterm electives…
Eighth grade students are invited to apply for leadership roles in afternoon electives. They bring their passion and expertise in various subjects: cooking, sports, drama, arts and crafts, to their peers. Teachers add their own offerings: video editing, map making, origami, creative writing, etc.
The following photos were moments captured by the photography elective.
As students build new skills in electives, they strengthen community and have fun in the process.
