Let Grow Project
At BWL, we pride ourselves on developing students who are not only skilled readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists, but also ones who are confident, capable, and resilient.
By partnering with the Let Grow Project, our Lower School students are given the opportunities to take ownership of their own success.
What is the Let Grow Project?
The Let Grow Project gives students a simple, life-changing homework assignment: Go home and do something new, on your own. Climb a tree, run an errand, make a meal—the choices are endless and the impact: immediate.
Simply by experiencing some independence, students find themselves engaged, excited and curious. They analyze situations, evaluate consequences, and discover how resourceful they really are. Everyone sees the change: Educators, parents, the kids themselves. Independence leads to new problem-solving, resilience—and joy.
