Second Quarter Director’s Wrap-up: 2018-2019

As the second quarter and first semester ends, I would like to share that our high school staff and students have been working diligently to finish up their first semester courses. They have been preparing for EOC SOLs. Our students have been using resources like Jefferson Lab and Kahoot as well as practice SOLs.

The elementary classroom has been reading “Charlotte’s Web.” The students are enjoying this book. They have been able to identify characters as well as recall facts about the story. Our middle school classroom has been focusing on Perspective Taking. They are working hard to understand things from another person’s point of view.

As a school body we have found time to build in some group fun to strengthen our Power of the Group concept. The student body and staff came together and played a friendly game of kickball, where our high school students helped our younger students. Our students and staff enjoyed the time playing together and strengthening our communication tools. Our students were also able to demonstrate their KEYS knowledge during the game! I am so proud of the progress we have seen in one short semester, and look forward to what our students and staff will accomplish in 2019!
