My Students

We are a group of inquirers waiting to learn all we can about our world. Our mission is to develop a community of respectful, lifelong learners who use inquiry, critical thinking and problem solving skills to be socially responsible contributors to a changing global society.

All students hold themselves to high expectations and are confident in their ability to succeed.

Students are excited about coming to school and are actively engaged everyday, all day. Students have the courage to share their strengths and don’t hesitate to ask for help. Students are reflective, inquisitive learners who take increasing ownership for their learning. Students care for and respect others. As students become more aware of the world around them, they develop a stronger sense of responsibility and stewardship.

My Project

I have curated a variety of toys and games that I believe span generations. Many kids lack these toys and games in their homes and classrooms. There are a reason these games and toys are called "classics." They help children create, imagine, build, work, play and most importantly, have fun! Kids (and adults) need ample opportunity to play and find joy. Many of our youth spend so much time on a screen they are lacking some essential social and emotional skills. These items will help children build important life skills to become the future strong community members we desire and need.
