Thursday was a magical day here on campus. Our grandparents and special people entered campus and their faces lit up with excitement as they got to see their littlest friends show them around our campus. The fifth graders showed off our classroom and campus with their favorite people. See the beautiful photos below! 

Join us on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:00 pm for our very first Branch Night: Reimagine Middle School…In Color! Families will have the opportunity to hear, see, and feel our wonderful middle school in action. Come experience what it’s like to enjoy our Wheeling Park Branch Campus like the kids do: across the crosswalks and around the walking trail designed by our students, on the terrace balcony full of deep dive projects, and in state-of-the-art classrooms with modern furnishings to match modern times. Every part of the campus is open to you.

Playground and Parks Deep Dive 

We’re one week away from presenting our research and moving into our study of parks. Look for more work on the presentations in the next week before children get the opportunity to stand in front of their classmates and try to persuade us one way or another.
