Learning Commons

This week in the Learning Commons students created art inspired by a New York based artist. We tweeted our learning and he wrote back. He even sent us a signed copy of his book. We also created a fantastic castle that was co-operatively designed and built by 14 different divisions. We learned a lot about problem-solving and creating together. We also nominated peers for the #KindnessCounts trophy. Check out us out!
