What in the World are These Workshop Days For?
- Last Friday was an important professional learning day for our elementary staff. Our faculty theme for this year is Building Responsive Communities. We know that with increased enrollment we need to do a better job than ever in developing classroom communities of caring children and adults. We have adopted the Responsive Classroom (RC) approach elementary-wide this year and this summer 17 elementary staff attended intensive four day training in RC and then on Friday, the rest of the teachers were trained as well. If you want to learn more about RC, our September Scoop Podcast will feature Assistant Principal Amy Doyle talking all about it. The Podcast will be live soon.
- Coming on Monday, we have our annual Collaboration Day when nearly all teachers and many Instructional Assistants share with each other what we know about children with each other in a structured schedule.
