Cultural Studies Class Makes Guatemalan Worry DollsCultural Studies class has been learning about global issues. They watched a documentary about poverty in Guatemala and made Guatemalan Worry Dolls. Guatemalan Worry Dolls originated in Mayan history. The legend is that if you are kept awake at night because of your worries and stresses, you can tell them to your Worry Doll and they will take your worries and stress away so you can get a good night's sleep.

All Charles School families are invited and encouraged to attend!
Click here to join the meeting!

Crew is a Charles School core practice that brings our community together to promote shared understandings and encourage all community members to become Crew, not passengers.  Crew is a vehicle for developing and supporting students socially, emotionally and academically.  It is also an engine for equity and inclusion, a place where all students feel they belong and can succeed.

We have expanded this work to include Family Crews to engage and connect our families with our Crew culture. This year we are hosting 5 evening Family Crew sessions and offering an accompanying Family Crew workbook. Join us on February 23!

All 2021 Family Crew Dates: January 26; February 23; March 23; April 20; May 11
