The Wonder of Play

The Steward community gathers for Visiting Innovator Day.

The campus was in full-on “play” mode on November 10, when Visiting Innovator Carolyn Schuyler spent the day at Steward. In the Bryan Innovation Lab (BIL), Ms. Schuyler gave a parent presentation on the importance of play as a foundation of learning and healing. Her talk was the third installment in our Fall Parent Speaker Series. 
Ms. Schuyler then spent the school day meeting with JK-12 students. In the afternoon, the Steward community gathered for the BIL’s Family Play Fair, which featured hands-on activities for students (and parents!) of all ages and focused on our 2021-22 schoolwide theme of “play.” Build-It Desks, Stomp Rockets, Bubbles, and Misfit Toys are just a few of the fun activities that families enjoyed. Plus, participants enjoyed a sweet treat on the BIL patio: homemade s’mores!
