Thrive launched our FIRST EVER, Thrive E-Learning Community (TEC) at our Arnold location in the Fall of 2020. Our TEC Program is designed to provide support for families who want their children to excel at e-learning while also getting as much physical activity and non-screen time during the day as possible. Students log on to their device during their synchronous school times while coaches provide support and encouragement. During lunch and break times, children are able to utilize our 5,000 sq ft gymnastics and ninja facility to run, play, jump and climb in a safe and physically distant environment. Thrive E-Learning Communities allow for both full and half day participation options, one to five days per week.
Students will be grouped in learning Pods of 8 to 10 students to one coach based on their grade level. Pods will utilize separate areas of the facility for instructional time and will be grouped together for P.E, Gymnastics, and Ninja classes.

Thrive Families will send students with the following items each day:
Child’s backpack complete with all supplies needed for the day. All supplies should be labeled.
