The Three Chapin C's: Character, Curriculum, and Community

What's Happening at Chapin

The Three Chapin Cs: Curriculum

One of Chapin’s Three C’s is Curriculum, and so much of our curriculum is on display in the classrooms, labs, art rooms, music rooms and all of the various learning spaces at Chapin. You may find students naming their avatar on the iPad, discussing the digestive system in the science lab, understanding geometric shapes in first grade, and so much more. Our curriculum is learning brought to life—discussed, debated, lived, practiced, and any way that a child learns and prepares for future learning.

Community is one of Chapin's three C's, and one of the best ways our community comes together is through family groups. Family groups consist of students from Pre-K Explorers through Grade Eight working together, and all of the faculty, coming together in small groups to help others, have fun, and get to know each other. This is our first family group meeting of the year and pretty soon will see Lower School students "high-fiving" their Upper School family group members as the walk through the hallway!

At this month's All-School Meeting, Mrs. Pasteris brought the entire 8th grade to the stage, and also invited the kindergarten and 1st grade to sit with them. Mrs. Pasteris explained the significance of the 8th graders putting their thumbprints on the Chapin C, and how that helps to show "who we are" and "what we do" at Chapin.
