URCHIN SCIENCE 

Welcome to a brand new school year!  We will be exploring rocks & minerals and more amazing things.

URCHIN FOCUS GROUPS

Focus Groups are small groups that focus on a specific content theme. We cycle through two themes each year: Math and Literacy

URCHIN INQUIRY GROUPS

These groups are all about the interests of the students and what they want to do, investigate, and learn. Students brainstorm and form Inquiry Groups which continue each week.  Inquiry meets weekly from 12:45 - 1:30 except on the last Tuesday of the month which is Showcase. 

URCHIN CLUBS

This year we plan to offer more clubs to extend the fun and learning. Parents interested in sharing a skill or interest with our students, please talk to Mary.
