Pagosa Peak Open School is pleased to present a round-table informational workshop for educators on Monday, March 13 at 7:00 pm, at the home of the new charter school:  Parelli Natural Horsemanship, 7 Parelli Way.  There is no charge for the workshop.

The workshop will be held at the Parelli Building in Aspen Village, near the Walmart store.

Pagosa Peak Open School is open for K-4 students this coming fall. Those interested in learning more about Pagosa Peak’s educational model — and what it may look like to become a Pagosa Peak advisor (teacher) or staff member — are invited and encouraged to join us at a round-table presentation and discussion.

This informational workshop will share Project-based Learning (PBL) basics, how PBL engages students in developing literacy skills and content area understanding, and how a Place-based philosophy ties into PBL.
