Celebrations around the school!

In Climate Change, we celebrate Denisse, Abigail, and Oscar for achieving Exemplary mastery for our current case study. Once they reach exemplary, students have the choice of acting as a coach for peers or tackling an independent study.  Denisse and Abigail are coaching and Oscar is pursuing a study of climate-related extinction events.  

Imani, Scill, and Adam participated in an EL Education Institute around leading schoolwide improvement using data and an equity lens led by author Sarah Fiarman and EL School Designer Aurora.
