The collaborative spirit between each division at Wheeler is what grows our community. Each year, the Kindergarten class studies their "Spirit Animals," Chipmunks and Squirrels, in their Aerie classes and while out at the Farm for Forest Friday. In the spirit of inquiry-based learning, students develop questions about what they'd like to learn about the animals and our Upper School students respond to those questions by creating a presentation and activity to share with the Kindergarten class.
This Week at Wheeler, we celebrate! First on Friday for our Celebration of Reading with author and illustrator, Dan Santat, who has developed a TV show for Disney!? Wow. But he isn't the only celebrity. We're also welcoming "RBG" Director, and this year's Founder's Award recipient, Betsy West '69 in town for her 50th Reunion. From one studio to the next, we caught up with the NuVuX Studio Team on our podcast @ Wheeler (brought to you by us! Your This Week at Wheeler team,) while students in Spanish H3 got their hands on the Spanish version of the celebrated autobiography of Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Be sure to keep it on brand this Saturday at Fall Family Fest — Wheeler's School Store will have a pop-up at the Farm.
