RE: September Summary of Teaching and Learning
September has been a busy month at Woodland Middle School!
Staff has spent time on Monday mornings reviewing data to formulate school improvement plan goals utilizing the SMART model and time in department meetings with the high school. Additionally, we have been working through Navigations 101 curriculum and preparing for student-led conferences the week of October 26-30. WMS teachers are getting used to the schedule change and adjusting to the shorter class periods.
The Higher Education Board released the College Bound Scholarship information to schools in September and WMS has begun the process of having students enroll for scholarship. This is the program's third year and has been received well by middle school students and parents.
Teacher web pages have been updated for the 2009-2010 school year and things are well underway.
Woodland Middle School is definitely off to a great start!
