Since January, we've grown. We now have fourteen students, which, by SK protocol, is an entirely full class. This group is comprised of six sixth graders, seven seventh graders, and Taylor, who, like other SK kids in the past, will carry the SK banner to Community High School as a high school freshman.
We are the biggest kids in the school's smallest room. Some of our attention these days is beginning to turn toward our digs for 2013-2014 and beyond: the second floor at the north end of the building, temporarily occupied this past year by Wild Swan Theater. Wild Swan is in the process of moving into its newfound permanent home, and we have taken advantage of this transition to begin exploring the upstairs space and make plans for how we will make use of its wide open spaces. Matt Berg and Shan Cook are advance scouts--their offices have been relocated to that space.
There is a large gathering space where we will convene every morning, and eleven small office and classroom spaces that open on that commons. How will we kit those rooms? Two libraries, five work spaces, three quiet rooms, two offices? A music room, an art room, a lounge, a restaurant, an inventing room, a spa?
If you haven't yet toured the space, please stop and and we'll show you around. Suggestions are permanently welcome.
