The week will culminate on Friday with an art show & potluck where students will display and celebrate their work with family, loved ones and community members.

*The projects listed are examples, not necessarily what we will do. The projects we ultimately choose to undertake together will depend on student interest

We will traverse wild places in search of inspiration

We will honor the importance of play

We will hear stories that feed our imaginations

We will sing songs to enliven our spirits

We will form friendships and celebrate each other’s gifts
