Dress Like a Book or Movie Character Day - April 2015

This week marks a full week of on-site staff development on-site here at Charles Wright with Teacher College's staff developers Brianna Parlitsis and Alissa Levy. Teachers team with the staff developers to strengthen their skills in teaching literacy through the reading and writing workshop model. This on-site training enables our teachers to meet together, gain insights and strategies, and then watch them applied or apply them themselves with our very own students within our very own classrooms. This is a very exciting experience and has made a major impact in further developing the expertise of our teachers. Please click the title for more.

Charles Wright students are working on having two hours or less of screen time a day as part of the 95210 program! Filling that time with board games is a great alternative as these students found out last Friday afternoon as the entire school stopped everything to spend time in more interactive activities. 95210 stands for 9 hours of sleep, 5 fruits or vegetables a day, 2 hours or less of screen time, one hour a day of exercise, and 0 drinks with sugar.
