We are ONE MONTH into the 2021-22 school year, and boy has it been busy! We have a fun and energetic group of MAPsters this year and they have been making the absolute most of the time we have after school!
As seems to be the entire theme of the world these days, there has been a lot of adjustment on the fly for us so far. Luckily for us, one of our core strengths is adaptability! After the past year and change, it was clear to us that the kids just need to be kids right now. We've really opened the day up for their own exploration and play, and made pivots in how we structure our day to ensure that all that fun can be done safely.
To ensure the best possible spacing for the kids, we have been relying heavily upon our awesome outdoor space! We've been lucky with the nice weather we've mostly had and many of our kids choose to stay outside the ENTIRE DAY! We've been able to go on hikes, play sports, and just enjoy the time in the sun!
