Herricks students get a break from homework to ‘try New Things'

Every Tuesday evening, students at Herricks’ Center Street School take a hiatus from traditional homework to pursue their interests, develop new talents and engage in family activities with a unique initiative dubbed “Try New Things.”

Developed by a Homework Committee consisting of parents and teachers, the “Try New Things” program offers the school’s kindergarten through fifth-grade learners the freedom to create, collaborate and be inspired through play, music, sports, mindfulness, family connections and more.

The opportunities are nearly limitless! The primary guideline is that the activity must not involve screen time.

The following morning students are encouraged to share their chosen activities during a circle time discussion, fostering communication skills and offering them time to reflect on their experiences with their peers.
