Please join us at the Birches Open House on Sunday, November 6, from 1:30 to 3:30pm. In addition to hearing about our potential new property, you will visit classrooms, meet faculty, parents, and students, and learn about innovative initiatives, for example, our Wednesday "Explorations." Every Wednesday, from 11am to 12 noon, students participate in Explorations, an elective period in which they choose from different course offerings. Past options have included world geography, ceramics, printmaking, and drama club. Explorations rotate every six weeks so students can try out new activities. Right now, four electives are being offered: Outdoor Math; Chorus; Yoga; and Nature Journaling.
