I CAN DAYS
Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, students will be participating in several "I Can Days" during their Specials time. These days are designed to have students reflect on their progress through the creative process that our areas uniquely rely on to obtain our curriculum standards in addition to their progress in Restorative Practice. Our I Can Days will focus on Leonardo Da Vinci's seven principals for creative genius...
An insatiably curious approach to life and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning.
A commitment to test knowledge through experience, persistence, and willingness to learn from mistakes.
The continual refinement of the senses, especially sight, as the means to enliven experience.
Becoming open to the unknown. A willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty.
Arte-Scienza (Art and Science)
Whole-Brain thinking. The development of the balance between science and art, logic and imagination.
Corporalita (The Body)
The cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and poise. Balancing the body and mind.
A recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena. Systems thinking.
