Evergreen Brick Works Tenant Spotlight:Gradale Academy

Do you know what a Wooly Bear Caterpillar looks like? Could you identify a tickle tree (also known as the white pine)? These are everyday discoveries for students at Gradale Academy. Gradale’s placed-based learning helps students make daily connections to  our environment. Last year, not a single day went by where we did not go outside! It’s like a field trip every day with hands-on experiences that promote resiliency, problem solving, healthy habits, fewer sick daysand improved concentration. In a society that is so risk adverse, our students are able to experience graduated risk, which is key in their self-confidence and overall ability to grow and learn. Gradale students are respectful—not fearful—of nature. For registration and more info on Gradale, email gradale@rogers.com. Appointments are available January to the end of March on Wednesdays.
