Students Work on their ROPES Project at San Carlos Elms

ROPES is the Rite Of Passage ExperienceS program that is specifically designed as an optional enrichment activity as students complete a cycle of their education (early mastery, intermediate mastery, advanced mastery). ROPES is an opportunity for students to participate in an academic ritual by way of real-life learning experiences. The ROPES project gives students an opportunity to explore and demonstrate project based learning.
We have four students providing a "Piano Social" for our Residents. They perform some songs on the piano then they socialize with our Residents after they are done performing.
The Residents enjoyed their first performance this past weekend.
They performed in both our Assistant Living and our Memory Care Program.
