Girls on the Run at Village!

What is Girls on the Run?

By Marci, Coach and Village School Parent

Girls on the run is an awesome program that has been part of Village for 7 years now. Over a period of 10 weeks, girls in the 3rd through 5th grade participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms.Throughout the season, the…


“Are you on the North American Continent?”


“Are you in the United States?”


“Are you on the West Coast?”


And so they go on until we’ve finally found out that this classroom of 4th and 5th grade students, with whom the 4/5th grade Talented Toucans are video conferencing via Google Hangouts, exists in northern Illinois. They learn the town, the school name and some of the history of that region once the location has been confirmed.

And vice versa; once the students in Illinois find out our students are in the South…

Village Maker’s Faire


By Amilia, Village School Parent and Positive School Climate Chair

From homemade soap to gooey slime, from hand-crafted artisan jars to tasty BBQ ribs, the annual Village Maker’s Faire had something for everybody!

Photography Fun


Photography Fun is a brand-new lower grade center this year. Learn more about it in this Q&A with two of the parents who teach this Center each week.

We wrote this curriculum and then realized how important it was for the kids to have something to take home and show their work. We came up with the idea for the photo book and made a sample and the rest is history!
