Drumming with Kwesi

Through a partnership with Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), 3rd graders work with teaching artists to learn African dance and drumming during a 12-week collaboration, culminating in a performance for families in the auditorium. This work connects to the third grade social studies curriculum, in which students learn about African history and culture.

"Cool Clusters" are enrichment groups led by parents and teachers that celebrate the diverse interests and talents of our school community. Cool Clusters allow students to “choose their own learning adventure,” exploring topics and interests they may not otherwise experience in a typical school day.

PreK and Kindergarten students are participating in a yoga and mindfulness collaboration with the nonprofit organization Bent on Learning. Bent on Learning believes in teaching children to use their body and mind to learn and live better!
