The drums arrived from Africa this week! We use or buy many things from all over the world, but there is something special about materials arriving from overseas just for you. We can't wait to share them with the kids.
We started receiving students' book recommendations for our library and there are a number of titles that are new to me. I can't wait to produce Ideaventions Academy's own Book World of books we love.
Curriculum & Faculty
We selected the foreign language curriculum and instructor! Like in Art, we decided to partner with a company that shares our teaching philosophy, Language Stars. We believe that Language Stars' methodology of play-based, immersive learning is the best way for kids to learn a foreign language.
We also would like to announce that Rachel Marrion will be teaching PE. Ms. Rachel loves sports, having coached softball, soccer, volleyball and basketball. She enjoys trying new exercise routines and you will always find her in the middle of a game.
Construction continued this week. Here are the main highlights:
- The walls were all prepped for painting and the ceiling was painted.
- The cabinets arrived this week and assembly and installation began.
- Sidewalk work was completed.
- The Genius Bar and Welcome Desk were constructed.
- The installation of the lights began.
- We planned the fence.
All in all a great week!
