Connected Learning workshops were held in November to update parents on our partnership with Connected Learning. The program strives to connect the learning that occurs in schools with the learning that happens at home. Guidance counselor Lauren Brown facilitated these workshops by highlighting the program’s various components:
  • Teaching Matters provides professional development to WSC teachers in the areas of curriculum and technology
  • Computers for Youth provides free technology resources to our students
  • Common Sense is an on-line internet safety and digital media ethics program
  • Mouse is a program that provides training in areas around tech support
Parent turn out was high at both informative workshops and families left with packets of resources and a list of ideas for the next parent workshop.
