The students of Calvin Donaldson Environmental Science Academy will showcase their learning at the first Celebration of Learning on Thursday from 4:45-6:45 p.m. The event will be held at the school at 927 West 37th St.
Students will showcase the skills and knowledge they have learned through grade-level Case Studies. Case Studies engage students in intellectual investigations built around projects. Teachers connect quality academic learning to adventure, service, and character development through a variety of student experiences including interdisciplinary projects.
The celebration will begin with a Hot Dog Supper from 4:45-5:15 p.m. Guests will then be invited to tour the school to view displays of student created projects based on grade level Case Studies. The Celebration of Learning will feature projects created by students in grades kindergarten to fifth grade.
