Each year students explore a theme or context around expression and this year we plan to explore this theme all year as we use express who we are while celebrating our 10 year anniversary.
We inquire into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.
This is how we express ourselves.
Have you noticed this beautiful mural on the East 22nd stairwell windows? Some of our current sixth grade artists and collaborators (pictured below) worked with community members from Campus District and Norma Herr to create this beautiful mural. Read more about the project here. We are looking forward to more community projects like this one in the year ahead,
