Our Next Web Chat is April 20th - The Importance of Play

“Perhaps play would be more respected if we called it something like “self-motivated practice of life skills,” but that would remove the lightheartedness from it and thereby reduce its effectiveness. So, we are stuck with the paradox. We must accept play’s triviality in order to realize its profundity.”

"No Homework Policy
Orchard School Homework Information 
Student's Daily Home Assignment
1.Read just-right books every night -                                   
     (and have your parents read to you too).
2. Get outside and play -                                                    
     that does not mean more screen time.
3. Eat dinner with your family -
     and help out with setting and cleaning up.
4. Get a good night's sleep.
