Two New Discovery Day Options

Join us starting the week of April 6th (yep, even during Spring Break) to the end of the dismissal.
Let’s Connect! is our weekly online meeting via Zoom and a chance to connect with fellow students and mentors. Let’s Connect! is about fun, movement, goals, accountability and a break for caregivers that will last about one hour each week. Please join us on the day of the week that you regularly attended Discovery Days at 11:00 am or 1:00 pm, whichever time works best for your schedule that day. No registration required. Just hop on Zoom with the link posted on our password protected site. Look for the email from your teacher with that information.
Can you hold a pole in both hands and twist it around your body without letting go? Let’s find out? Join the appropriate FlipGrid posted on our password protected site to join the challenge of the day. New challenges will be posted M-F each week.
