Focus Learning's Fall 2015 Newsletter

Focus Learning September 2015 Newsletter 


    Our Fall “Back to School” season has been filled with sunshine, learning, and laughter as we begin our fifth year here at our learning centre in North York.

    We welcomed some new teachers to our Focus Learning team, who have brought energy, expertise, and fresh ideas to enhance our programs. We have also included some new specialty classes to our Fall 2015 schedule. See our “Featured Classes and Teachers” section for more information!

    While getting to know our new students, teachers prepared a fun and educational first few weeks of classes. From planting seeds in “Science Magic” to putting on a show in “Drama Production,” students have already shown how fun learning can be at Focus Learning.

Creativity, design, and problem solving shine bright in this Young Engineers class. Students learn how to use brainstorming, creative problem solving, and team work to build and design. Using materials like paper, Lego, cardboard, wood, and other household materials, our Young Engineers learn skills they can use across content areas and in life itself.
