  Art Days of Summer Arts Arts Art Days of SummerĒ is a camp that aims to improve the critical thinking of children by allowing them to make calculated decisions when creating their art. Though art is fun, children will build on useful life skills and meet and conquer challenges through artistic expression. When students paint, draw or collage pictures they are learning to communicate visually.  Through group projects they are learning how to take turns and to value one anotherís efforts.  Art helps students make their own judgment while also showing them that a problem has more than one solution.This camp also aspires to help students develop an appreciation for Art. Campers will explore famous and local Artists and their work. They will also learn to critique through description and analyzing. Through exploration students will learn that there are no mistakes in Art and learn to make adjustments.  At camp children will be encouraged to think creatively and openly without being confined to conventional rules.

Art Days of Summer is an  Art based program.  We expose our campers to using different art materials as well as different Art techniques.  We take weekly field trips that parallel the themes of our program.  There will be a weekly spotlight ďArtist of the WeekĒ. Every week for the duration of the summer program, one or more students will have the opportunity to show his or her art. Along with the studentís display a short bio will be written about him/her.  Students will be introduced to and explore a range of Art terminology such as montage, perspective, contour lines and Art styles such as, Abstract, Pop Art and Expressionism.

  Boolean Girl Inc STEM STEM Boolean Girl was created to address the declining numbers of girls and women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields by providing girls in grades three through eight with meaningful, hands-on instruction and sustained exposure to computer science and engineering in a collaborative and welcoming environment.  We provide after school clubs, enrichment classes, summer camps and special events designed to inspire and encourage girls in third through eighth grades to code, build, invent and animate. Over the course of each 60-75 minute class of 8-12 students, girls (and sometimes boys) work both independently and collaboratively through Scratch, Advanced Scratch, and physical computing projects that are initially provided by the instructors, but are later determined by the childrenís imagination and interests as they engage in self-directed learning. In this way, content and learning builds from week to week and from one semester to the next providing a successive and comprehensive experience over the course of the year. Our curriculum, a set of progressively challenging project-based lessons, sparks an interest in girls while they are in elementary school and allows girls to stay engaged through middle school which helps them to enter high school computer science classes on an even footing with their male peers. Clubs typically meet weekly for in 8-10 week sessions for 60-75 minutes each week. Camps may vary from one to five days, and special events are customized based on the needs and purpose of the event.

  Choose To Evolve Community and Family EngagementHealth and WellnessSocial EmotionalWrap Around Services Social Emotional Choose to Evolve'sô (CTE) mission is to encourage growth and build value in personal and professional evolution. We inspire generations of resilience from wombs to classrooms through social-emotional projects, initiatives and collaborations. Our programs address these challenges collaboratively from the inside out. Itís the choice we make in every moment that defines the dash between our birth and our death. 

I-Evolve Parent/Child Partnershipô (IEP/CP) is just one project of Choose To Evolve (CTE). It's purpose is to provide resilience training to parents and children. Resilience is necessary to combat ACE's. (ACE's is an acronym for Adverse Childhood Experiences. It represents a collection of childhood exposures that harm the childís developing brain to the point of causing adverse mental, physical and cognitive outcomes. Adversities include but are not limited to: physical/emotional neglect; physical/emotional/sexual abuse; absent parent, household violence, an incarcerated or addicted family member, and/or someone in the household who is living with mental illness).

I-Evolve Parent/Child Partnershipô (IEP/CP) (a product of Choose to Evolveô) is a second-chance resilience-based program that provides enrichment and development training, coaching and mentoring to K through 8 students and those who parent, educate or care for those students. Our programs focuses on balancing the effects of traumatic childhood experiences by strengthening bonds, increasing resilience and building agency within families and between communities. IEP/CP seeks to bring awareness to families and their support system so that effective and global change can be made. In the course of 5 month's, parents (parents-to-be/guardians/caretakers) will flow through the following educational forums
This 20 week half-year program is designed in two tracks Ė one for children and one for adults (teachers, parents, guardians) and divided into 8 week sessions with a check in session in between  and a celebration at the end. We typically work with schools 2 - 3 days a week which includes a Saturday session for parents.

During the course of the program, parents will become aware of the root of their and their childís behavior while seeking out opportunities for a more resilient lifestyle. This knowledge will be supplemented by a discussion on how the brain works, a course on mindfulness for parent and child; a parenting course for the seasoned parent; a healthy living course; a series of parent groups (including a group specific for women); as well as enrichment workshops for parents. Of special note, is a coding class for children.

To address the challenges at-risk students face comprehensively, we employ the CIS model of Integrated Student Supports (ISS).  This model uses three tiers of support to provide both whole-school programming and services, and targeted supports for individual students through case-management for students who have been identified by school staff as needing more individual interventions.  

Whole school services (Tier 1) are provided in alignment with an annual School Support Plan, developed by the CIS site coordinator to identify and address student needs and the priorities identified by the Chancellorís goals.

Tier 3 supports are intensive, individualized supports for students with the greatest needs. Site coordinators are onsite every day, building relationships with students, so that they are able to identify the best solution for a student and make the connection that will enable a student to be successful in meeting their goals.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
