Our remote learning and hybrid models allow us to provide a relatively normal educational experience for our students, even from afar. However, one challenging aspect of remote learning is a student’s social development. To foster healthy social growth and connections, we are glad to recommend a Fun Friday activity for your child’s class.

Fun Fridays are optional outdoor recreation times at a local park where the entire class is invited. They will occur on the last class period of a Friday (1:45-2:30), rotating roughly every three weeks. Each student in the class can participate, even if he or she is learning 100% remotely. Parents are asked to stay at the park, though teachers will be present to lead and monitor the activities.
