PROJECT-BASED LEARNING: A special program featuring "PBL" is taking place this week at Peach! Each morning, 2nd-4th grade teachers are learning together with the county gurus and in the afternoon, teachers will facilitate the learning from their morning with students. This approach offers engagement strategies and an authentic purpose. Ask your child about their PBL learning!
