Provide an Enriched Environment for your child's BRAIN!
Larger brains, larger dendrites, increased neural connections, and stronger synapses are scientifically shown as the result when a brain is exposed to an enriched environment.

UNIT Study Day
How Do Your Prepare for the SAT's?
Hands-On History and Science Units
Using the 5 D's of Konos:
Students will DO, DISCOVER and DRAMATIZE
to keep and develop their love of learning and
increase their knowledge and understanding.
Excellence in academics is achieved
through DIALOGUE and DRILL
Talking about what they have learned
gives them ownership of the topic, provides critical thinking practice, and
repetition activities and games aid
in storing facts into long-term memory.
Interactive lessons will remain in long-term memory with the use of visuals, projects, discovery learning, discussions, writing, vocabulary games, timelines, and maps.
This is new for SY19-20 and we will attempt to confirm subjects
prior to August 15 so let us know what you are looking for in Fine Arts or Electives.
Arts & Crafts
Some possible subjects we are talking about with Instructors:
Cooking, Sewing, Band, Choir,
Voice, Theater, Foreign Language,
Coding, Robotics, Entrepreneurship,
Volunteering, Community Service and Outreach
are examples of endeavors we would pursue on Fridays.
ENRICHMENT and CORE
can be combined
for your child to experience
both types of lessons each week.
