ESAA Exhibitions of Learning Schedule

ESAA students look forward to sharing their learning with their school community on Monday, February 27th. Parents are encouraged to attend their child's Exhibition of Learning, and are welcome to stay to see the other projects. Students have focused on looking closely at the world around them, researching topics, creating solutions, and representing their ideas. Exhibitions of Learning are as much about their process as they are about the final product. Questions and connections are always welcome!
