Interest Groups

Interest Groups provide the opportunity for enrichment through student choice of fun, engaging experiences. Teachers, students, and parents share interesting skills and activities in multi-age groups. Children continue to learn how to make effective choices about their own education and strengthen community bonds through these experiences.

Interest Groups take place four times a year. Our last round of Interest Groups in April and May included Outdoor Ball Games, Building Fun, Art Inspired by Nature, Namaste, Young Yogis and Yoginis!, Arts and Crafts, Bees and Flowers, The Art of Optical Illusions, Let's Make Some Noise, and the Website Wizards.

Dinner was served around 4:30. We enjoyed our usual Top Chi pizza al fresco again! After that, it was time to get ready for the talent show. Performances included a basketball demonstration, dancing, rollerblading, jokes, and animal tricks (with stuffed animals!).

Following a terrific talent show, we enjoyed a special Meeting for Worship in …
