A Fay Second Grade Project Recognized Nationally
It is with deep pride and tremendous enthusiasm that we share a spotlight article on our Second Grade Leaders by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). This article goes in-depth on how they engaged in authentic and innovative learning when they collaborated with the Houston Zoo and tackled the mascot project!
Through this spotlight article, our industry’s governing body essentially affirms Fay’s strategic plan by commending a project that creatively integrated strategic plan priorities one, two, and four. Further, this endorsement showcases Fay’s vision and one grade level’s approach to “deliberately building and educating the next generation of leaders for our world.”
In addition to being published on the NAIS website, our article was published in the NAIS 2021 Spring News that was circulated to all 1,600 NAIS member schools. Your children are now a national example of student-centered leadership for all NAIS member schools to follow. Not bad for a young school celebrating its 30th anniversary!
While at Fay, your children are at the center of their learning and leadership development. In this case, they have propelled themselves and The Fay School to a place where we are now elbowing for a well-deserved seat at the national table. The implications of this are as significant as they are myriad, and your children have led the way.
