Our Philosophy

GOOD HEALTH
A good night’s sleep, a diet rich in zinc, protein and complex carbohydrates, plenty of water and plenty of oxygen add to the brain’s ability to handle mental processes. Our focus on healthy eating, drinking plenty of water and regular physical activity allows us to feed our brain physically so that learning and teaching have the best possible foundations for intellectual and academic success.

MAKING CONNECTIONS
Information presented in an exciting and creative manner is more likely to be remembered than information presented in a dull and lifeless way. The memory will be most effective when the learner makes a personal and emotional connection to what he or she are learning. Therefore we present key information and skills in dynamic ways that impact children’s individual learning styles and targets their individual needs. The child must make an emotional connection between the new learning and his or her own life experiences. All of this means we must be clear on what our learning objectives will be so we can plan to present these critical topics in the appropriate manner and maximize these connections.

A LOW STRESS ENVIRONMENT IS BEST FOR LEARNING
Children under stress can’t learn. The neocortex is the part of the brain we use to think and assimilate knowledge. It works slower than the limbic brain which we use for emotions. When a child is stressed, the limbic brain takes over, resulting in a range of negative emotions as the brain tries to counteract the stress brought on by a perceived threat.

This has been a very exciting week in music class!

On Monday we had special guest musicians Emma Dean and Eddie Dickerson perform for us during assembly. They were even able to stay and have a ukulele “jam session” with G4 and G5. The students had a chance to explore Mr. Flowers’ primary instrument, the double bass. The students did an excellent job learning the basics of how to play the instrument, and were even open-minded enough to try it themselves!

Students also took some time this week to learn about the life and work of Tom Petty, to appreciate the contributions he made to music during his lifetime.
