Gillian Larson, Early Learning Center Teacher

The unique immersion program at Avenues features partner classrooms and teaching teams, who work closely together to develop complementary curricula in English and Mandarin Chinese or Spanish. The monster-themed curriculum in the Blue and LanSe nursery partner classrooms illustrates this effective educational practice.

The Frida Kahlo dress
  • Learning
Amelia Padilla, Pre-kindergarten Teacher

The Goldfish and Starfish embarked on a study of Frida Kahlo. They learned about her artistic life, where she was from and about her love for making self-portraits. Our pre-K curriculum already incorporates self-portraits, so this was the perfect way to connect the study of Frida Kahlo to a familiar theme.

Rosalyn McCaine, Lower Division Art Teacher

This spring, the 5th graders have been creating paper mache food objects in art class. The goal was was to feature these food objects in a “community supermarket." And last week, the students installed their store, called Billy’s Art Mart, on the fifth floor of our school.
