Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Ross Valley Charter, opening this fall for TK–5th grade at the White Hill School campus in Fairfax.
Enter a Ross Valley Charter kindergarten/first grade classroom and you discover a joyful buzz of activity. Scanning the room, you notice a group of children happily constructing a marble run with blocks and PVC pipes, others playing a math game with a parent, and some outside observing wildlife with magnifying glasses and notebooks. Amidst the action, you locate the teacher, sitting on the rug with a small group of students forming letters on mini chalkboards. A girl approaches: “Would you like to see the painting I’m working on?”
Interested in learning more about Novato's proposed new progressive charter school? This Sunday, July 15, at 4 pm there will be the third in a series of public meetings to inform the community about the school, which will be Marin County’s first Core Knowledge curriculum pre-k through 8th grade public charter school.
The meeting will include an overview of the proposed charter school, a detailed look at the Core Knowledge language arts program, the grade-by-grade curriculum sequence, and an interactive Q&A. North Bay Educational Foundation (NBEF) will also present general charter admissions policies and guidelines, and attendees will have the opportunity to sign a consideration of intent to enroll. In addition, there will be opportunities for interested community members to get involved in bringing this educational opportunity to Novato.
