What Makes a School Year? Our Year in Photos
by Nikki David, Associate Editor, BEYOND
What’s happens in 180 days of learning, growth and fun? Each school year at Rocketship is a unique and extraordinary journey from beginning to end, and we never quite grasp how much we’ve grown until we look back. So much goes into making each school year the best one yet for our Rocketeers, while still saving all the necessary, silly and bittersweet things we hope never change. Here’s a small snapshot of our 2014-2015 year in photos, from celebrating brand new schools to studying spiders at science camp, to making new friends and memories.
We sincerely hope this answers the question, “So, what exactly did we do this year?”
