Students and teachers at GBS are re-imagining how to “do school” this year. Even though we can’t use most of our tents yet, classes are happening outside. Students are connecting with their teachers, as well as their in-person and remote peers. Teachers are finding new and creative ways to engage their students academically while supporting their social-emotional needs.
Even though our tents aren’t quite ready for use – teachers are still taking advantage of the good weather to conduct classes outside. We are anticipating the good news that we can use the tents as outdoor learning spaces, but until then…we will get creative!
On September 8, 2020 Great Brook School opened its doors (physical and virtual) to welcome students back to school. With safety measures in place such as health screenings, temperature checks, mask wearing, and physical distancing, students joined the teachers in the building. Although not all of our students are back in the building yet, we are providing instruction to our “Remote Bobcats”
