Whether you are looking for this year or next, Breakwater’s Annual Open House is an opportunity for all families (current and prospective) to visit classrooms, meet students, current parents and teachers, while learning about our authentic and integrated curriculum. This is a fantastic opportunity to get to know Breakwater’s "science behind the magic"! Bring a friend and come explore why Breakwater students are engaged, happy and curious learners!
Faculty, parents and students will be on hand to show you our school and help you get to know Breakwater.
We begin with a presentation outlining our mission and teaching model at 10:00am in the Jessie Auditorium. Classroom activities will be offered for learners of all ages, so come with your children and bring friends!
The Open House is immediately followed by our Harvest Festival from 12:00 - 2:00 pm. Celebrate the fall harvest with us by cider pressing, playing field games, experiencing interactive workshops and demonstrations highlighting Breakwater's dynamic Enrichment classes.
Bring your favorite harvest dish to share. Help us make this a "no waste" event: BYO P/B/M & U (Bring Your Own Plate/Bowl/Mug and Utensils.)
