Elementary Explorations

The mission of Elementary Explorations is to provide all elementary students with opportunities to engage and explore cross-curricular content while increasing student voice, improving well-being and creating engaged learners through whole child, project-based learning.

The Elementary Explorations teachers will see your student once every two weeks and will be working with your student in their classroom on a variety of projects that include topics on STEM, art and design, robotics, literacy, physical education, and well-being.
