Character Development Professional Development- This professional development will help teachers teach their students how to effectively communicate with other students and adults. Teachers will learn how to implement tools such as "I" statements, being attentive, and how to ask open ended non- judgmental questions to gather information. Students will also learn their strengths and weaknesses, systems and how to sustain themselves in an ever changing society.
Circuits Inquiry Professional Development- Teachers will learn how to implement inquiry-based methods throughout their science curriculum and in many other subjects. This intense training will adequately prepare teachers to employ critical thinking skills for their students.
Customizable Professional Development- Tailor your Professional Development to a certain area of interest in Science and Math.
Family Math Night - Families can enjoy 2 hours of "unintimidating" math activities, while students are able to learn new ways to view math skills used in their class.
COST: $700/2 hours
Family Science Night - Families can enjoy inquiry-based table top activities that will reinforce concepts learned in science class. Unisphere* (Portable Planetarium) can be added. School will provide the volunteers.

Life cycles of an African Clawed Frog- Students will be able to see firsthand how a tadpole metamorphically changes into a frog. Classrooms will be supplied with the tadpoles and lesson plans that will highlight what is taking place during this life cycle. Students will also learn the unique characteristics of this frog.
COST: $250 for 2-4 tadpoles and lesson plans.
Aquaponic Systems: Aquaponic and Aeroponics are the new craze in Science and Urban Farming. This system is great tool for students to see the life cycle of plants take place before their very own eyes. Students will also learn chemistry, botany, life science all in one kit.
COST: Starting at $250 for one class kit.
