The school was buzzing with activity this week as students are in full swing for the second half of the school year!

Lower Division students played an active game during speech lessons that combined a hockey stick, a ping pong ball, and the objective of golf—all while working on words, phrases, and sentences. In Middle Division, students practiced reading aloud as they prepare for a dramatic reading of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Dissection was on the table in High School as students learned about the parts of the brain while dissecting the brains of sheep. Go Panthers!

Join us virtually on February 1, 2022 at 7 p.m. for "Bias and the Brain: How Racial Bias Affects Thinking and Learning", a presentation by Pollyanna consultant, Jason Craige Harris.

This session is a crash course in the latest research on why belonging matters to all of us—especially children, how bias works, what it takes to be allies who tell better stories and break the link between bias and behavior, and how we can support our children in developing these important skills.
