Eastern vs. Western Dragons

The Acorns & Sourflowers read Amy Wu & The Patchwork Dragon by Kat Zhang. This led to watercolor creations of our own dragons!

Lunar Eclipse

The total lunar eclipse of May 16, 2022 (the night of May 15 in the Western Hemisphere) occurs near perigee, making the Moon appear about 7% larger than average.

  • Intro to Celebration of Learning (link)

A beloved TKG Tradition is our Celebration of Learning. Our community gathers, as a show of deep support, to celebrate students and create value for their ownership in the process of learning. It supports our mission to offer an interactive and collaborative approach to education.

  • First Day of School Traditions (link)

Not your typical first day around here, our #firstdayofschool traditions include play, building relationships, and sunflowers. These traditions were designed to build a community that can work through just about anything.

  • Learning through Conflict (Link)

When students experience conflict at TKG, we (adults) do not put our effort in to resolving the conflict for children. We believe that the conflict is an opportunity to learn about self, others, and outcomes. Conflicts are a natural and real part of our everyday world and part of the daily learning process. But similar to how some people respond to children in free-play…some may question: what are they learning?
