Today was a "House Group Day". Everyone from Grade K-5 met in their multi-grade group to play for about 25 minutes. The purpose of house groups this year include (among other things)….. giving everyone the opportunity to interact and build relationships with children from all other grades, work on social skills, sharing, communication and language skills, teamwork, confidence, etc. Each group has about 14-16 students in it and meets with a teacher leader.
