Our Berkeley Unified School District teachers and our Seneca staff have made it a priority to build and enhance community relationships as part of returning to school, even in the midst of this ongoing pandemic. Their efforts have been welcomed with open arms by students eager to connect.
One of the highest reviewed activities by students thus far was learning and practicing Capoeira from a guest instructor at a nearby park. This outing was connected to our student’s World History class in which they were learning about Brazilian culture. Our CEC teacher reported that our students brought their authentic selves, were silly, and had a blast during the experience.
