market in the area where you want to buy or sell. Whereas understanding the overall market is helpful, there remain locations that are very active and others that have stagnated a bit. Please take time to engage a real estate professional who can answer your questions and assure you have the information you need to make an educated decision before moving forward.

What’s Happening Around Town?

Results from the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors (CAAR) recent 2nd quarter home sales report truly are a mixed bag. I can’t remember another recent time that the report could support either a positive or negative trend. This was evident in a recent conversation on The I Love Cville network where participants varied in their assessment of the Charlottesville area market. While home prices are rising, there were fewer closings in the 2nd quarter compared to the same time last year. The numbers of homes that went under contract decreased as well. Another negative trend is that it now takes longer for properties to sell (up to 54 days). This, in my mind, is a good thing because if it continues, we will enjoy a more balanced market with six months of inventory (currently it is 4.3 months) and average days on the market (DOM) of up to 90 days. A market like this gives buyers time to make the right decision compared to one that pressures VOL. 28 NO. 26 n JUNE 26 - JULY 2, 2019

them to act quickly out of fear someone else will buy the home. It would be easy to believe that we can expect to see a less than stellar second half of the year. I don’t think this will be the case for these reasons: • Interest rates will remain low. The National economy is good but there remains uncertainty about the future, causing the Federal reserve to hold interest rates steady. • There are mortgage programs available for buyers with little money for down payment and closing costs. • New construction helps keep the buyer market strong. Although there were fewer closings in the second quarter compared to the same time a year ago, a higher percentage of them were new homes, a trend I expect will continue throughout the remainder of the year. Many builders also have “ready to move in” homes available right now, which is good news for three reasons: • Buyers don’t have to wait for the home to be built. • Buyers can take advantage of surprisingly low interest rates. • Some builders are offering incentives to encourage buyers to act now rather than wait for a home to be built. In closing, I encourage you to study the WWW.CAAR.COM

week was filled with behind-the-scenes lab tours, guest speakers, hands-on computer science learning, and a biomedical engineering design challenge. “Not school in a traditional sense,” said David Chen, UVA BME Coulter Program Director, about the program. “We use hands-on experiences to empower our learners with skills so they can address the real issues facing patients in our community.” This year, 14 young women from 11 different schools around the region participated in the program. On Monday, they were hosted at St. Anne’s-Belfield School to get hands-on with computer science tools and concepts. Tuesday through Thursday, they were hosted by UVA’s Biomedical Engineering Department to get behindthe-scenes lab tours, learn from guest speakers, and start working on their design challenge. On Friday, they were hosted at the i.Lab at UVA to finalize their projects and share them at the Demo Party. The public was invited to an open house event to see what the young women had created, learn more about the program, and enjoy refreshments. St. Anne’s-Belfield School is a co-educational preschool through grade twelve day school of nearly 900 students and more than 150 faculty and staff, with a boarding program in grades nine through twelve. Fifteen countries are represented in the student body, with 40 percent of students receiving financial aid. More information may be found at www.stab.org.

The Dave Matthews Band is enabling music to help adults with disabilities in this community recover from---and adapt to---their brain injuries. It is fitting that the successful Charlottesville music group is able to directly aid residents through music. Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band renewed its support for the local nonprofit, The BridgeLine, by happily writing a check to support their music therapy program. The BridgeLine is a local nonprofit that enriches the lives of Central Virginia adults with brain injuries. They provide many services to help adults recover from brain injuries including music and art therapy. The BridgeLine and its members are so grateful for all of the support they receive from the community and from the BAMA Works Fund: “Everyone that supports the BridgeLine, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without it I would be lonely and lost.” – Marques Davis, Charlottesville resident and member of The BridgeLine

Looking to the future, Charlottesville Catholic School continues to innovate in its curriculum and instruction with hopes of being a third-time recipient of this award.

The new wing houses two science lab spaces for elementary and middle school students, a new music room, a performance space, and an expanded kitchen. CCS has the unique opportunity to include religion into the STEAM programs through the incorporation of the Catholic faith and Christian values in everyday interactions of the students and faculty, which when interwoven into the daily curriculum, makes it a STREAM program. Comprehensive information about CCS is available on the school website, www.cvillecatholic.org.

Charlottesville Waldorf School The Charlottesville Waldorf School offers a revolutionary notion: that in the midst of our high-speed world, children should be provided a timeless space in which to do their work. We nurture the innate imagination, empathy, and will in each child as they learn with head, heart, and hands. Our Toddler Class respects a small child’s desire for predictable rhythm. We mark the days, the weeks, and the seasons with warm, wholesome, daily snacks prepared together, open-ended indoor and outdoor play, the celebration of seasonal festivals, and interaction with different artistic and nature-oriented activities. Our Early Childhood program supports the healthy growth of young minds. The curriculum features a home-like and rhythmic atmosphere. Children enjoy activities such as bread baking, watercolor painting, and handwork projects (such as knitting), and develop cognitive and linguistic skills through storytelling, song, and poetic recitation. At the Elementary School level, the Charlottesville Waldorf School engages children in the world of traditional academics through an experiential, movement-based, multi-disciplinary approach that supports each child’s unique development. During these development times, speaking, writing, reading, and mathematics are all introduced and reinforced through imagi-

native, cultural stories including fairy tales, fables, myths, and legends. Strong work habits and positive social skills are developed and supported by a passionate and committed team of teachers who help round out the child’s education with subjects like Spanish, handwork, movement, orchestra and music. They also engage the students in studies that encompass the animal

kingdoms, grammar, cursive writing, geography and map-making, decimals and fractions, and the history of ancient civilizations, understood through powerful, imaginative, and practical experiences. The students’ experiences are further enriched through class trips, plays, and relevant activities, such as farming and gardening.

Accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, The Covenant School was founded in 1985 as a non-denominational Christian day school seeking to promote the moral, intellectual, and physical development of students in a stimulating and nurturing environment. The Covenant School is a co-educational school enrolling students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. With an intentional focus on Christian Liberal Arts and Sciences, it provides formal education in traditional academic disciplines. Students benefit from a wide variety of performing and visual arts opportunities, as well as a broad physical education and sports program. A rigorous college preparatory curriculum taught within a Christian world-view creates an environment that is both supportive and challenging, seeking to inspire students to love God and to love learning. From the phonics foundation in Pre-Kindergarten to the wide variety of Honors and Advanced Placement courses in high school, Covenant students are encouraged to become critical thinkers and problem solvers. The Birdwood Campus (Pre-K – Grade 5) is conveniently located in a historic brick building near downtown Charlottesville and houses the Lower School.

Free Union Country School Who We Are For more than 30 years, wonder and discovery, not tests and mandates, have driven the education of Free Union Country School students, preschool through fifth grade. Just 15 minutes from downtown Charlottesville, Free Union’s six acres allow plenty of room for kids to be kids. Small class sizes and personal relationships accord teachers the chance to deeply know their students and encourage the intellectual, social, and physical growth appropriate to each child.

Field School Field School, a middle school for boys, has a mission to “develop well-rounded boys of character and accomplishment.” Field School offers a traditional, academically rigorous curriculum in English, social studies, math, science, Latin, Spanish, and arts and music, along with character and leadership development. Daily team sports participation emphasizes physical fitness, teamwork, fair play, and sportsmanship. The school features regular field trips to expand the classroom and increase the vitality of learning experiences. Eighth Graders complete a year-long project culminating in a trip to Costa Rica. In order to make the Crozet site more convenient to Charlottesville parents, the school provides a daily shuttle from several stops in Charlottesville and offers a daily lunch program. For more information, visit www. fieldschoolcv.net.

How Students Learn At Free Union Country School, kids learn by doing and questioning and expressing themselves—powerful forces for learning. Free Union students don’t just read about Colonial America, they become colonists, stage their own Boston Tea Party-style protest, and craft a Declaration of Independence. Doing is reflected in students’ independent research projects, work in the school garden, maintaining stats on favorite teams, or monitoring the school’s energy efficiency. Each day there is ample time for kids to play (“the work of childhood,” according to philosopher Jean Piaget), an often-undervalued yet indispensable ingredient in early problem solving, creativity, self-discipline, emotional balance, and an ability to get along with others.
