Welcome to 2012-2013
"Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved." ~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Schools opened last week with great excitement and energy. Watching students at each school arrive, it is clear that they had great summer vacations, but are ready for the fun and challenge of school. District-wide we are continuing our focus on sustainability, with the goal of reducing the use of throw away plastics. As a result, the school cafeterias will no longer be using plastic forks or spoons, but will be using stainless flatware.
At the high school students are happily taking science classes in one of the seven new or two renovated labs. Within a few weeks the new digital photography lab and clay studio will be fully operational. Outside the science labs there is an outdoor classroom, a beautiful amphitheater that is a gift from an anonymous donor. Meanwhile the new Media Conference center will be installed with state of the art technology, also a gift from the same anonymous donor.
The Middle School will be expanding the 1:1 tablet program into grade eight (https://sites.google.com/a/my.weston.org/ipad-support/home). Middle School students will also find a new source of support this year offered through the DSP (Directed Support Program), which will be open before, during and after school for extra help and organizational support.
At the elementary schools, Woodland School, under the new leadership of Dr. Cindy Crimmin, plans to highlight global connections throughout the curriculum; Country School is planning to continue its STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Art & Mathematics) initiative with another all school trip to the DeCordova Museum; and Field School, besides focusing on the building of the new facility, is preparing students and parents for key transitions.
