PRESCHOOL PROGRAM SEEKS PEER PLAYMATES 

The Wethersfield Public Schools are seeking children three years of age as of October 1, 2017 to participate in the Developmental Early Intervention Program for the 2017-2018 school year.  We are only taking applicants for the three-year old program at this time.  This program includes children with developmental delays and same-aged children who act as peer playmates.  Classes are located at Samuel Webb Elementary School.  Classes are 2.5 hours per day, Monday – Thursday.  Children are assigned to a morning or afternoon session and parents will be notified of the assignment upon acceptance.  Cost per year for this four-day program is $1,050.00.

Peer playmates will be selected through a two-tiered lottery system. Application deadline for the lottery is February 28, 2017.  Due to the volume of the applications received, a lottery will be held to select potential peer playmates to participate in a screening.  Those selected will be invited for a screening on Friday, March 17, 2017.  The snow date is Friday, March 24, 2017. A second lottery will be held after the screening to fill the number of open slots. 

Parents interested in completing an application should call Mrs. Rosanne Zdrok at (860) 571-8141 to receive a registration application for the lottery.

This past week, after school, staff got together and participated in a team building challenge.  The challenge was competitive and as you can see from our photos, many staff took it VERY seriously.  At Webb, we believe in the essence of team and we feel that if we can continue to enhance our relationships as adults we will greatly benefit our children.  This was another great day at Webb!

As statewide assessments have changed, Wethersfield High School has developed different ways to address standardized testing.  Several teachers and administrators have attended SAT workshops sponsored by the State Department of Education, Connecticut Association of Schools, and the College Board.  They have brought their knowledge of the new SAT to the faculty at Wethersfield High School. 
Every month, each department meets and focuses on how to best support student learning with SAT preparation. Professional Development throughout 2016-2017 has focused on preparing teachers for SAT practice and administration. Teacher practice goals focus on preparing students for the SAT.  Teacher-created SAT practice activities, using tools and resources like Google Forms and Khan Academy, have allowed for frequent student practice.  Throughout the school year, students take practice tests for the PSAT and SAT using College Board booklets. 
Wethersfield High School administers the College Board Suite of Assessments.  In the fall of 2016, grade 11 students took the PSAT.  In the spring of 2017, grade 9 students will take the PSAT 8/9, and grade 10 students will take the PSAT 10.  Grade 11 students will take the SAT in the spring of 2017 as well. Taking the PSAT in grades 9, 10, and 11 will allow students to see and track their progress.  Teachers encourage students to use the resources provided by the College Board and Khan Academy to understand the areas that need improvement and practice.  The teacher and student preparation has supported overall student learning.
