Last week, Mosaic students participated in the Winter session of Exhibitions of Learning (EoLs). This is the chance for students to pick a topic from one of their academic classes and spend a semester conducting research and proposing a plan to interpret their findings through a medium of their choice.
The Mosaic School is hosting a student Shadow Day on February 4th from 8:05 am to 3:10 pm. Students interested in experiencing a day at Mosaic are welcome to attend. For further information, contact Erica Brown at email@example.com, or visit our website at www.etudegroup.org.
The Mosaic School is hosting an information night on January 26th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm in room 3402. Staff will provide a brief overview of the curriculum, student guided tours will be available and the evening will close with a question and answer session. All community members are welcome.
Here at The Étude Group of Schools, IDEAS Academy, The Mosaic School, and Elementary School for Arts and Academics, we value not only the community within our walls, but what impact we make as individuals and as a group in our larger community. Through project-based learning, we can situate our academic learning into real-life, relevant issues in our community like monarch migration[/elementaryschool/esaa-blog/first-grade-exhibitions-of-learning-why-are-butterflies-important/], native species awareness[/middleschool/mosaic-blog/mosaic-at-maywood-native-animals-and-energy-transfers/], and high school health[/highschool/ideas-blog/ideas-human-anatomy-and-physiology-class-hold-health-fair-at-school/]. If this is something you value, we'd like you to consider supporting us in our mission[/about-us/educational-program/].
Since the beginning of school, the Energy class at Mosaic has been learning about Energy Transfers and how animals and plants support each other in their natural habitats in Wisconsin. At school, students developed a body of knowledge and good field practices to take with them to Maywood Environmental Park to help them create, from their own observations, a food web for native animals in Wisconsin and a better understanding of the balance of ecosystems.
Understanding the purpose of field trips and developing thinking around them is important at all of The Étude Schools. That’s why, on the day before their trip to Kohler Company for the STEM event it offers each year in October, Mosaic 8th graders attended a pre-trip meeting during Advisory.
We are very excited to announce that Camp Étude is back this year! We are offering a robust after school program. The expanded program will provide opportunities for students to participate in programming that:
For the most part, this year’s new teachers didn’t know a thing about the Étude schools before they applied to work here. They saw a post for a teaching position at ESAA, Mosaic or IDEAS Academy and decided to check out our website to learn more. “It’s a bit of a drive, but I’m applying,” recalls Becky Knight excitedly. “I was immediately grabbed by the whole vision.” Rod Stoehr also saw the posting, went to the website and thought it sounded like a great fit. There was something about Étude’s unique learning philosophy, positive environment and collaborative culture that told each of them they belonged here.
The Étude Group will be participating in the August 20th Levitt Amp Sheboygan Music Series presented by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. This is a free, outdoor music series that features local food trucks and national music acts. The evening will feature music performances by IDEAS Academy students, Asiah Davis - Williams, Bayden Dassler, Kelsey Fick, Paris Wolf and Hannah Olmedo from 5:00 - 5:25 p.m. and Drew Fredrichsen’s band The Jetty Boys at 5:30 p.m. Additionally, Étude Group staff and students will lead interactive workshops in poetry, engineering, drama, and more starting at 5:00 p.m. until the headliner begins at 7:00 p.m. Please bring a blanket or chairs and join us on the lawn near our Étude tent.
