Greetings!! As we begin to work our way into February the buildings are abuzz with students preparing for their upcoming state assessments. Administrators are learning about the new process of PARCC as WJSHS students are taking practice assessments on the computer. Not only are teachers preparing their students for mid-year and end of year assessments they continue to provide instruction to the curriculum. Students are learning how to become critical thinkers as they look for ways to solve problems and collaborate with others. It is exciting to listen to students as they think out loud in making suggestions, working through a process, and even sometimes coming up short for a solution. The aspect of not giving up is also a piece that we are trying to instill within our students in letting them learn that sometimes part of success is failing.
Recently I had the pleasure to attend a Ware Business & Civic Association Meeting to speak to a number of local realtors about our district. The message that people are hearing is that we may be small in size nonetheless it allows us the ability to provide a personal touch to all of our students. Click Here to See Video! Once you have seen it I know you will agree that an education in the Ware Public Schools is a very personal thing!
With snow on the ground I know it is hard to believe that spring is around the corner yet the high school has already begun preparation for graduation! With that being said there is still much work to be done as our faculty continues to work hard in meeting the needs of all of our students.
Stay warm and continue to watch the website for updates to what is occurring throughout the district! We continue to have an awesome year servicing the children of Ware Public Schools.
