"It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are you busy about?"
Henry David Thoreau
Laraway School concluded another successful academic year. Two seniors graduated, earning their high school diplomas. Students in our K-12 school advanced to their next grade level with some with plans to return to their public schools.
Students and staff celebrated academic and social achievements alike. Students were recognized for meeting academic requirements in math, literary arts, science, art and the social sciences. Teachers also recognized students for personal growth in areas of cooperation, collaboration and real-world problem-solving. James, a math teacher pointed out that a particularly math-savvy pupil kept him "on his toes" during a unit on Budgeting!
Laraway School is a "busy" place? What are we busy about? Academics. Social Skills. Employment Skills. Learning to "be" in the world in a positive way.
