Classes through Communities
In the Communities program, we integrate literacy into the curriculum through researching real-life issues, fostering effective reading habits, and writing for authentic purposes and audiences. We also demonstrate our literacy skills by creating social media posts.
In the Communities program we look at past and present events and then dive deeper into them. We've talked to war veterans to gain a better understanding about what happened and we analyze primary sources to extend our knowledge. We're proud that our learning goes beyond what a typical textbook would teach.
In the Communities program, we implement leadership by providing volunteer experiences in and out of school. We also have public speaking opportunities to build confidence and independence from our typical group work. Every Friday students have the opportunity to volunteer and speak at the Mid-Morning Kiwanis meeting to improve our leadership sand public speaking skills.
