It’s been an exciting week at the Center for Creative Education! On Monday, we welcomed students back to The Foundations School for their first day of the new school year. It would be understandable for students to be nervous: even for students who attended The Foundations School last year, this year they have new classmates, new teachers, and are coming to a whole new building. 

But any nerves on Monday were quickly swept up in students’ excitement to see old friends, make new ones, and explore their new educational home. And students carried that energy through the week as they started their lessons. Already, students are getting the chance to flex their creative muscles, whether it’s fourth grade students dancing in the open creative space or third grade students learning about place value through sculpting.  

Welcoming students to our new campus is a major milestone for CCE. We’ve been working hard since our groundbreaking last November to make an open and welcoming environment for creative learning. Seeing the smiles on the faces of our students as they arrived at their new “fancy” school was worth every minute of hard work. 

This expanded campus also gives CCE all the space we need to build out our educational services. On Monday, The Foundations School welcomed our first fourth grade class, and next year, we will add fifth grade. We’re also working to build the Susan and Dom Telesco Arts and Science Center, which will house a theater, art gallery, and arts and science labs. 

This dream would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors. If you would like to learn more about our ongoing capital campaign to fund our new campus, click here. You can see more photos from our first week of school on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram
