On Friday, students participated in an Inquiry Day which is a part of our Bernstein Artful Learning. In keeping with our theme of CONNECTIONS, students connected with other countries around the world. We have assigned each grade level a country and a school. During Inquiry Day, students conducted research, asked questions and learned about their assigned country. They also had a chance to write letters to students overseas.
Here is a breakdown of the assigned countries:
Kindergarten- Creative Primary School, Shanghai, China
First Grade- Colegio Torrevilano School, Madrid, Spain
Second Grade- Narmer American College, Cairo, Egypt
Third Grade- École du Val-de-Grâce, Québec, Canada
Fourth Grade- Edron Academy, Mexico City, Mexico
Fifth Grade- 4th Elementary School of Argos, Greece
You can view some of the activities here and several more in the TL Photo Gallery.
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program that inspires 3rd through 8th grade girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The girls have been having a great time getting to know each other, developing self-esteem, and running together.

Dear Townline Elementary and School of Dual Language Parents,
Beginning on April 21th our Physical Education Classes (grades 2-5) will be involved in an in-house
roller skating program. Skating is a “life time sport” that enhances balance, coordination, agility and other motor skills. This wonderful form of exercise can either be aerobic and/or anaerobic.
Estimados Padres de Escuela de Lenguaje Dual y Escuela Elemental Townline:
Empesando el 21 de abril, nuestras clases de Educación Física (grados 2-5) van a hacer un programa de patinar en la escuela. Patinar es un “deporte de toda la vida” que ayuda con balance, coordinación, agilidad, y otras destrezas físicas. Es un tipo excelente de ejercicio y puede ser aeróbico o no aeróbico.
