First Paideia Seminar a Success!

Over the last two weeks, students participated in our first school-wide seminar titled “Yoga Poses”.  The ideas and values of strength, balance, control, cooperation, and unity were discussed.  For the post seminar activity, students worked together to plan and create a group yoga pose.  Ask your child about this interactive and engaging learning experience!
