WINTER LEARNING PODS RESUME IN DECEMBER!

Winter Learning Pods start Wednesday, December 9th, and continue on Wednesdays through January 27th. (No Pods during winter break.) Pods meet for a half-day (8:30 a.m. – Noon) at school.

  • Pods are intended to provide extra learning support and community for students who are not part of any other adult-supported pod outside of school.
  • Pods are organized in consistent small groups by grade level, led by a dedicated, trained community member.
  • Transportation and meals will be provided.
  • Students enrolled in any option (Hybrid, Remote, or REACH), who are not yet committed to an independent learning group outside of school, can participate.

In their Learning Pods, students will engage in hands-on activities in science, art, and movement; receive support on classroom learning progress, and safely interact with their peers. They will also have time to participate in the Wednesday morning class meetings (via Chromebook).

We look forward to this next round of learning and community connection!
