Happy New Year!

Hope this finds everyone well and back into the swing of the new year! Between robotic practices and competitions, theater plays and Science Fair projects, our house has been busy!

We are wrapping up some first semester units in PACE, welcoming some new friends to the program and starting strong in the new semester.

3rd- We are finishing up our logic unit mystery and getting ready to start a genius hour project.

4th-We have finished up our Leadership unit and are working on a Leadership project at Sigler. We are studying architecture and building as well.

5th- We have been finishing up our law unit. We will be working on putting a fairy tale on trial. We are also preparing for the Stock Market game that will begin in February. Your student might come home and ask you about financial investments. Please help your student further their understanding of financial concepts at home to the degree you are comfortable sharing.

Creating Healthy, Harmonious Passions
