The first Monday morning as a huge yellow bus pulled into the front of the school, I realized I was a little nervous. But now, a mere five days later, those feelings seem trivial. Neither the TA's nor the teachers can believe that it's only been a week! In this small amount of time, we have made great connections with the students, and the girls have enjoyed their classes and afternoon electives.
At Castilleja, the students learn a range of skills and activities, like feeding frogs and fish, learning algebra, learning to use a computer, dancing in the Castilleja Dance Studio, and learning everything about maintaining a healthy garden, including nutrition and the benefits of organic foods. The girls are open minded and try anything, and the TA's love their willingness to get to know us and their fellow classmates. We have more exciting activities planned for the coming four weeks and the TA's are absolutely ecstatic. We hope you check in later to see just what these Castilleja Peninsula Bridge students are up to next!
