On Nov. 30th, we held our first Explorations Day. Nine courses were offered for each of the grade level bands (K/1 and 2/3). Students contributed topics of interest in each of their homerooms and then the Exploration teacher-leaders collated these lists for staff to review and consider as course topics. Students were highly engaged when delving into the content offered which included Science experiments, creating animated movies using stop-motion, no-bake baking, birdhouse designing, Crack the Code challenges, and artistic expression via canvas painting, collaborative murals, and sculpting to name a few.
Through providing an environment conducive to learning, the Greenwood Lake Union Free School District will teach each student the skills needed to acquire and process knowledge while developing and fostering social, emotional, and multi-cultural awareness, empowering each student to continue to set future goals for personal growth and the betterment of society.
