How about an incredible end of the year party complete with swimming, games, BBQ, waterfight, s’mores, hiking and more? How about a trip to Carlsbad, CA to visit LEGOLAND? The BRICKsters did it all!!

(Red) Rocking and Rolling into Spring Break

 

Our travels the past two months have taken us all around the Valley! We have visited Las Vegas Academy twice to see “AIDA” and “Bus Stop” which gave us laughs and tears. We have ventured to Red Rock Canyon to culminate a small erosion and geology unit. Galaxy Green Valley Luxury theaters hosted us for an inspiring morning with the powerful film “McFarlan, USA.” New adventures await after the break!

Decking the Room with Hangers of Geometry, Reading Charles Dickens, and a GIANT Pile of Clothes…Must be the Holidays for BRICK Academy!

The BRICKsters had a great December! We had our annual holiday clothing drive and give away at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission and donated over 4,200 articles of clothing!. We were able to read, watch and then go see a one man show of “A Christmas Carol.” And, of course, we sang songs and made hangers full of geometric genius. This year we also added a holiday show! Happy Holidays!
