APRIL is a month of BRAIN STORMS!  
  • We'll study CLIMATE and use it's metaphoric insights for our own private climates, learning about the world of excitable FEELINGS.
  • We'll learn and play with choices of self-expression, creative storm processes, and coping strategies for "the big feelings."  
  • We’ll use our expressive and creative forces to tackle the challenging extremes of weather within and without!  
APRIL will be a month of Action and Art. Children will be supported in their family's activist processes.
