Mini-courses started as a week-long dive into applied learning.  Students pick from a list of courses and spend a week creating something related to the theme of their topic.  Students start with nothing and end the week having created something wonderful, from a one act play, to developing an issues-based magazine, to building a nature trail or creating culinary delights.  

This program was so popular that it was expanded to Grades 4-7.  In 2020, students participated in the following courses over two days in February:

  • Making a Music Video
  • Viaggi Italia
  • The Groovy Undersea Garden of Matisse
  • Earth Day Invention 
  • Musical Styles of Latin America
  • Self-Care
