Dear Stratton families:
This afternoon, Stratton faculty will work on reflecting on, and improving our Responsive Classroom practices, in particular around arrival time. Please take a look at the following brief article, which faculty will be considering in making improvement for arrival. Faculty should be commended for working on optimal practices like these while in a unique, challenging physical space. Thank you Stratton faculty! Please copy and paste into your browser.
An unrelated item is the following link to an article I published recently with a colleague from Lesley and Harvard's Graduate Schools of Education. It concerns methods for cultivating habits of democratic citizenship in early childhood classrooms. Please let me know what you think if you have a moment. The actual text of the article is NOT all these pages; lots of appendices!
I won't be writing again until after the break, so I wish everyone some fun and rest over the holidays. And thank you to the PTO for hosting lunch this Friday - the faculty so appreciate it!
Under construction! Please see PTO website for an updated calendar!
The Stratton renovation advisory group met in early October to discuss topics relating to both the modular classrooms and the new Stratton building coming in 2017. The minutes from that meeting and previous meetings can be seen below.
