Events on Campus


Date & Time Event Description 



Performing Arts Center

Friday Feature: Music Curriculum Highlight—Marimbas!

Learning to play these percussive instruments is an energetic, joyful, full body and brain experience for students. 

Music teacher Jo Price invites parents to learn to play this instrument, and will discuss the reasons why she teaches this instrument, especially to middle-school students.

Marimbas are accessible—beginner students can learn to play a simple piece in one lesson; they're communal—students are motivated by the opportunity to play as part of an ensemble; they're joyful to play and a delight for audiences, providing positive reinforcement for students learning to play.

Register Today.

Friday Feature: Social-Emotional Curriculum 

Join us for a discussion about Tower’s comprehensive, evidence-based Social-Emotional Curriculum and how we help children and teens build essential skills in:
• Social thinking—strategies that help people develop skills in flexible thinking, social problem solving, and building equitable relationships as part of a group
• Social pragmatics—an understanding that what we say, and how we say it impacts the meaning and our relationships with others. Students build awareness of others’ ideas and perspectives to build productive and healthy group dynamics.
• Building a unified vocabulary for identifying and managing mental health challenges—including anxiety, disappointment, focus, worry, self-control, and more
• Understanding that supporting mental health is part of normal human growth

The development of these essential skills strengthens social interactions, emotional responses, and academic growth.
