Experience Days

Experience Day Ideas?? Do you have any ideas for upcoming experience Fridays or experience weeks? Please submit any ideas for activities and field trips here, we need student and parent input!

Wellness Activities:

Yoga with Jenny – I recorded this yoga video for Wellness time. I know there are a lot of yoga videos out there on the web, but I thought I’d personalize it for those of you who were coming to yoga everyday (Diann!) so you could continue to attend yoga with me! It’s imperfect, but it’s real!
