Academic Focus: Thematic Learning
While HLA – Northrop offers a well-rounded curriculum, this year our whole school will have a special emphasis on Thematic Learning. When scholars participate in Thematic Learning, they explore one theme or topic in multiple subject areas. For example, scholars may study the life cycle of trees in science class, paint pictures of trees in art, read about trees in English, sing about trees in music, and use leaves in counting exercises in math. This helps scholars make connections between all aspects of learning.
HLA-Northrop provides lots of fun activities for our scholars and parents throughout the year. Be sure not to miss out on our exciting In-school and Family Events, like:
- Festival of Nations
- Family Literacy Night
- Book swaps
- Math Night
And much, much more!
Check out our Events Calendar. Families will also be notified of upcoming events through our student newsletter.
