March 2, 2015 Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel. — Socrates Thank You and Appreciations Thank you again to Ms. Boni, our outstanding CORE Science Teacher.  Her love of learning and teaching has inspired her to lead our middle school students on two extraordinary journeys.  One to Yosemite with sixth grade focusing on Earth Science and the other to Catalina with the seventh grade to study Marine Biology.  This is some serious hands-on education!      CORE Academy SPIN Night This Tuesday is our CORE Academy Student/Parent Information Night. Come take CORE Academy for a SPIN.  All perspective CORE Academy students are invited to bring their parents for an exciting evening all about CORE.  This is a student-led evening with teachers and administration lending their insight and guidance.  Come check out the amazing things going on at our CORE Academy!
