Each year a school-wide learning theme is chosen. This theme is like a thread that connects learning throughout the school all year long. Each grade level takes a part of the theme to develop. Throughout the academic year, each grade level presents their learning to the entire school. They may create and present a play, a musical production, learning stations manned by students, or they may invite an artist in residence to help them present their theme. Listed below are school-wide themes and a breakdown of grade level theme days:
