We end most days with “project time”. During this time, students can work on visual art or other projects such as fiber arts, knitting, crocheting, practicing an instrument, graphic or digital art, reading, creative writing, strategy games such as chess, coding, or anything else that is creative, educational, and/or enriching. At the end of project time, students have a chance to share or show off what they created during this time before we head home for the day.
Additionally, we split and end each year with a large group “intersession” and involved individual “capstone” projects. Click the button below to learn more!
On Wednesdays, instead of having project time we work together in teams to clean the building! Students learn valuable cleaning skills as well as teamwork! This teaches students accountability and respect, because they know if they make a mess, they’ll be the ones to clean it up. This part of the day is usually pretty fun, and once students are done they have free time until they get picked up.
