Flexing our Co-op Muscles to Adapt our Campus for Pandemic Learning
Cooperatives are built for flexibility during uncertain times and this year, we will be flexing those co-op muscles to meet new challenges!
So much time and effort has gone into our new outdoor classroom space! Co-op members have built benches and added shade for students and staff that are back on campus. The Circle School curriculum is already oriented around natural spaces, gardening, and outdoor play. These new improvements will allow us to maximize outdoor time as we navigate this pandemic together.
Handwashing sinks have been added to each classroom and lots of other projects are underway. As a family-integrated educational cooperative, we are uniquely positioned to creatively and constructively respond to contemporary challenges. By example, our students learn that challenges are opportunities for innovative solutions.
When students will be in the classroom, individual desks, instead of shared tables, will be necessary to provide adequate space for social distancing. Our co-op members have been hard at work building custom-size individual desks for our smaller students.
Together, we can accomplish great things! #CircleSchoolRocks
