Colloquia Remote Learning
During this extraordinarily complex time, it is important to offer students a place for connection and community, familiarity and consistency, discovery and expression, and ways to encourage and embrace their love of learning—virtually.
Our talented, dedicated teachers rose to the challenge and created a thoughtful remote learning program for our Early Childhood learners through graduating seniors, designed to reflect the depth and breadth of the everyday GFS experience and bring students together.
Our program, named Colloquia, or “conversations” in Latin, offers:
- Live classes
- Recorded video lessons
- Hands-on, independent projects
- Group social "outings”
- PE and physical activity
- Meeting for Worship
- Art, music, theatre, special assemblies, and more
